Really hope it's not Cook, not sure he's ever had the best of budgets. Don't think we need to worry about Chilton!

It will surely be Crees. Btc racing did a video with all 3 drivers at the start of lock down and Crees said he had already lost a sponsor or 2.

maybe leaves room for some deal with Dynamics to get Shedden in ?

as Matt Neal did directly say that they tried to enter Shedden in 3rd car but couldn't get hold of TBL

Domestic Competition: No Spectators: Domestic sporting competition exclusively involving Elite Athletes, hosted within the UK, where no cross-border travel (from outside the UK & Ireland) is required for the Competition to take place. Access to the Competition will be restricted to individuals with essential functional roles.

Looks like a unilateral decision from MSV this is not the latest government guidance, that I have seen anywhere.
The key is the wording they've used "day visitors". That is the same term used to describe people visiting zoos, theme parks, gardens etc. They can't access the paddock or pits so they're basically visiting the grounds and there happens to be a motor race on at the same time...

I'd love to see it happen but I think it's far from realistic

It would also mean no camping. Take away camping and you have reduced the number of people being able to go and it reduces the number of people travelling greater distances to get there.

christ weíre the animals in the zoo

in all seriousness iím not happy about this from a personal perspective. but i AM happy that people get to see and hear racing cars again. itís even more awesome than it was pre-lockdown

i just hope people behave themselves and understand that a significant part of continuing to be able to attend motor racing involves there being no clusters of cases that can be traced to a circuit. that goes for us in the paddock and people in the spectator areas.
