2020 the long wait is over, BTCC Rd1/2/3 Donington Pk

the first weekend back after an extraordinary off-season. Lots of losses, few gains, a very different look to the BTCC this year.

In order to comply with guidance from the relevant motorsport authorities, visitors will not be able to access the paddock and pit lane for the time being.

Looking forward too it. It's been so long I really don't know who to expect to be on pole.

I think it's just repeating / re-iterating the guidelines MSV published last week. Grandstands will have "alternate rows closed-off and a minimum two-seat gap required between household groups". As it's all numbered seating, they will need to re-assign some people, or possibly cancel a few seats depending on how many tickets have been sold.

Frankly, I'm surprised the grandstands are even open.

I wonder how many will be allowed in the grandstands? Donington only has about one or two, so you probably won't see that many

There are no hidden charges, it is clear when you book your tickets.
Sunday:
£29 for an adult entry,
£8 for a grandstand seat.

Plus you pick your seat whilst booking the ticket, so you can see how spaced out people are.

It isn't.

It's just Jonathan Palmer thinking he can get some money in by pretending spectators at a BTCC meeting are like visitors to a zoo.

(And I suppose he's got a point: it is watching animals through a chain link fence.)

I'm sure there was a relevant quote about touring car drivers and being an animal that I could use here, but I just can't think of it

It's a risky game to play though. Especially if an outbreak gets linked back to it.

mmm, my thoughts exactly.

inside the paddock there's at least two organisations that are responsible for each individual - the team and the organisers. outside the paddock everyone is msv's responsibility. dr palmer must be in a really deep pile of poo to want to take on that liability.
