Things should be sorted in next few days.
Should there be any cancellations are any of the decent circuits in UK prepared to sort an alternative?

You think it will be cancelled then John? Sure we will hear early next week if so.

More of the problem would be who would want to organise it!
I think the options on circuits would be quite limited, so when you say decent...

Ouch. I feel sorry for Vincent and his team. Great people who don't deserve this hassle. Not alone of course but as Delta alludes, they make this whole event so unmissable. Without a lot of the supports can the main race continue? I haven't seen anything to the contrary so I believe as of today both MRL and Masters are attending.

Yes as I wrote the above post the e mail dropped. Also the Hat Trick event for mid-October. Very sad but probably inevitable.

You donít but there is a possibility of a race for the cars that were intended for Spa.
There are not to many organisers prepared to run alternative meetings for our cars before the winter and they should be given our support.
I do not understand your comment?

Yes they can't replace the 6hrs but as John says, there may be races for cars that would have gone to the meeting. There is also Portugal to consider. Currently that won't have any British entrants.

Itís reasonable to speculate that 70% of cars at Spa are UK based.
MRL with Moss/Woodcote series plus a Pre War grid were on Spa programme and many of those people had a drive in 6 hrs
A day with the MRL series and some sort of 6 hrs based race at a top track should be applauded and backed by car owners.
The 6 hr could be 2 to 4 hrs which would allow for other grids
This with the Goodwood weekend in Mid October gives a missed season a decent end!

I seem to remember another group trying their hardest to put on a six hour for those who couldn't do Spa.

With most of the UK circuits dormant, you's have thought there would be no shortage of location options? Snetterton maybe? ( Would suit JR/|Pace crew )

Brands GP would go down well with the neighbours
