Here in Denmark, everybody who cannot work from home is more or less forced to take their vacation now in order to save their jobs. So it might adjust itself quite naturally. (Depending on the holiday/vacation laws of the country)

1st weekend of October hopefully

Who knows If someone dares to cancel the LM24. Of course in this situation there are no rules...


How could affect the october month the race outcome? Tyre temperatures, engine and brake cooling...with adjustements we could see interesting solutions, faster lap times, less engine failure, tyre life etc...

Having the race later in the year (Sept/Oct) could help to local economy more as fans will look to spend more time in warm bars and restaurants rather than sat in the (cold) open air in the campsites.

French Open Tennis

The French Open Tennis Championships at Roland Garros, Paris which were due to take part between May 24th & June 7th have been postponed until September 20th to October 4th.
So original dates were very close to the 24Hours - maybe a portent of what may happen to the 24Hours?

We can drink mulled wine instead of chilled beer.
