I was working on the G6, but Covid 19 derailed that...

Joking aside, what about getting off prior to the last race? Please don't more of my hopes and dreams (joking again)

To reduce costs and alo enjoy it better, get to the island a few days early watch practice and meet everyone in the paddock before the actual races and then watch a few days actual racing and leave mid week, should also mean that you will be able to do le m,ans the same year. Or do the classic TT, better bikes, more bikes and the noise is 10 times better before they strangled the noise of the bikes.

Might be there, a mate lives on the island and marshals at the TT, but to be honest i prefer the classic tt now. As i said i like the bikes as they were, noisy and different, The sight of the modern tt riders pushing the old nortons and classics to their limit and the different sounds and smells as they roar past is amazing and then chatting to those guys in the paddocks is a little more to my taste these days.

From the last posts of this conversation I understand that WEC 2019/20 is officially dead. Only the forgotten are truly dead.

At the moment, you understand incorrectly then. Like many threads that are in limbo, this one has quite reasonably spread to other conversations. Your doom and gloom is pretty unwelcome, I have to say..... It would be great if you could contribute something positive for a change.

Well things looking better in Asia at the moment so perhaps the season will start soon over there and then transfer to europe in the autumn, fingers are crossed as not much else to do with them at the moment.

Where in Asia? It can only be Japan as Shanghai lost interest in the WEC.

Was trying to look on the bright side, but in general according to the papers Covid 19 cases in the far east seem to be reducing.

I'm not sure that bit will be understood.

In the silly which will be the next GP poll I chose Japan for your reasoning here.

For some that is no change

Are old WEC races available to watch anywhere? WEC app only has the last one, but YouTube has races from years ago.
