It probably won't stop the virus but nobody would care.

Just wondering with the new clampdown on spectators at sport venues - eg Goodwood horse racing spectators being banned - how long we're going to get away with spectators (sorry, day visitors) beng allowed....eg for Festival Italia....

Having seen numerous articles about this subject in the last few days, I believe the events this weekend (snooker, cricket, horses) were pilots - limited numbers / facilities etc. I am sure that the events as and when they happen will be reviewed carefully just as MSV, BARC, etc will have been looking carefully at how the first MSV events went a few weekends back.

The dynamics of watching those pilot events are a little different to the wide open spaces of Thruxton or even Brands - and typically attract spectators in a more contracted area.

VSCC Thruxton

Managed to have a look back through the Motorsport Archives and discovered that the VSCC held meetings at Thruxton from it's opening season in 1968 through to 1972 and once again for a final time in 1974.

I remember going to one of the Brooklands Trophy meetings in 1983. It featured an eclectic mix of races including a VSCC Handicap, a round of the Atlantic Computers Historic GT series and a round of the Marlboro British Formula Three championship. The Atlantic Computers race had a huge grid headed by John Foulston (McLaren M8F) and Mike Wheatley (BRM P154) while the Formula Three round saw the latest instalment of the season long Senna/Brundle battle.
