Everybody is used to R-Motorsport promises and deliveries. The real things haven't changed. It is still best to be honest and truthful from the start; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasures; and have courage when things go wrong. DTM fans are still expect them to show up in the grid with "their" Astons.

Who knows when (and if) we are going racing again this year. Expect other teams to do the same if the situation around the world doesn't improve.

Why shouldn't we race again this year?

i think most teams will wait it out and get back on the road for testing as soon as they can. they all have overheads to cover that don't go away, unless they're like r motorsport and are being bankrolled by somebody.

they'll be up for 2020 as long as their paying drivers are.

Someone is pessimistic that the pandemic may not under control within this year. So large public events may be likely to be suspended for whole year.

italiaracing has a draft calendar for the season, with the first few obviously pencilled in. the tba is one of the british rounds that have been cancelled, if we can't have a race here they've got something else lined up, apparently.

throwing the teams in at the deep end up starting the endurance calendar with the big one though

June 16-17 - Pre 24 Hour Spa Test
June 28 - Zandvoort - Sprint
July 5 - Misano - Sprint
July 26 - Spa - Endurance
August 9 - TBA - Sprint
September 6 - Nurburgring - Endurance
September 13 - MagnyCours - Endurance
September 27 - Budapest - Sprint
October 11 - Barcelona - Endurance

There are no absolutes in human misery and things can always get worse. But that would mean a global tragedy. Govts would go bankrupted and you'd have riots in the streets.

The soon we go back to, the better the world is. Three months for Spa test days.

Be surprised if the Spa Test Day goes ahead though, as there is talk today of Wimbledon & British GP going down the pan and they are scheduled after July 1st.
When all this started I actually thought of going to spa for the Test Days as I can't make the race this year .......... don't think that will happen now as my company have banned all non essential travel to Europe for the foreseeable future.

Rest assured that the people at SRO are working hard to see what is and what is not possible and will only make a public announcement on the calendar when the time is ready.

absolutely, but it very much helps people figure out how long they're potentially going to be working into the winter if there's updates.

Problem is, this might give false hope to people as this draft was just one of several options (this one being the most optimistic).

Italiaracing.net simply copied it from a mail to teams - despite clear instructions to recipients not to spread the dates.

Judging by the way car sales have collapsed, the economy has collapsed and the petrol/diesel ban then motorsport as we know it may not exist anymore.

i do understand what you’re saying, and generally sro have done a great job explaining their decisions and so on. nobody really knows what is going to happen or even what is happening at the moment.

maybe communicating with teams only is a good thing in theory, but they’re not the only ones having to juggle very tight cashflows. the first series to be clear with their dates will end up with the best quality staff at this point...
