Anyone want to put money on the AGP/Supercars event being held next year? I wonder what lead time they need to plan and put everything in place? Bathurst might look a bit dodgy at the moment also. These events are still months away but do require substantial lead time to set them up, more the AGP than Bathurst though. I imagine that when the state government get this phase under control they will be very reluctant to allow any events especially those from OS to be held and risk repercussions from it.

I reckon I would go to double that stake. Just cant see it happening, particularly given the local situation is going to get worse before it gets better.

You could probably say no AGP for years.
They are talking this virus could take many years to die out.

It may be tin foil hat thinking but I wonder if it will run again for a lot of different reasons including the Victorian government not having the spare funds to host it and perhaps the lack of visitors in the years to come.

The Season and restrictions on Teams and available tracks is looking slim.

Also looking slim is, having available volunteers, Darwin and T'Ville need them, but with hotspots an restrictions on entry , isolation etc, and having double rounds, volunteers pay their own way.
At the moment SA and Qld volies look the most likley, but some Qld live in hotspots, so no go there
Big ask , in these times

It has always puzzled me why a professional series financed by by a promoter who expects a return on his investment expects volounteers to run a a race meeting.

On the face of it there is a dichotomy there but then it's not just an Australian thing, the same applies throughout Europe, US and a range of other countries and continents - from F1 on down.

There is a "double edge" to it - yes, professional series rely on volunteers for many of the officiating roles and the days can be long but for enthusiastic volunteers, that often means getting into race meetings for no cost, being at least partially fed & watered but also getting closer to the action than any paying spectators and being genuinely part of any event.

It's down to a cost , to be borne by the promoter. You could go with lights at cnrs and straights etc, and just have dedicated recovery/medic teams .
No human involvement at track level.

Everything on circuit would have to rely on incar and tv footage to determine any abuse of the rules. Whereas having marshals, they actually see it, report it ,followed by written report.

So a couple of options open to promoters
