Indeed, when I saw your post I thought it would clash with the 1 month lockdown. If you can't travel until 4 May how can you get set up?

We're talking about "l'exception française" I presume… Just have a look to this, which atm concerns only "modern" meetings:
https://www.ffsa.org/Pages/Actus/202...francaise.aspx
As to historic, it seems that everything will run as "should", meaning a derogatory form will be sent to each competitor together with his entry confirmation. Necessary because we're not suppose to drive from an area to another nor to break the curfew…

Glad you dont ask me about my personal feeling…

Not forgetting that this new lockdown, supposed to last four weeks, might be lengthened depending on the circumstances… But announcing that our beloved and so necessary bistrots could be allowed to re-open, will see many swallow a bag of stones… Cul sec!

I've just broken the curfew - I've been to the bottle bank! It was essential as my box was full.

If it's urgent, just one finger & swivel it a bit, or if really urgent, two fingers??

It will be lengthened - 2 May is St Boris day, & that would never do for Napoleon!

Well, well, well… Please note, "well" is totally inappropriate in this matter.
31 Mars: new gov' decisions announced.
1 April soon in the morning: our fédération is very happy and so proud to show how good it is to go racing again.
2 April end of afternoon: worried about the situation, our fédération ask us to wait for the result of the discussions with several ministries…
Ha, yes, stupid I am, the subject is the different circuit championship, karting, modern, historic AND new this year RC models!

That's nothing - I'm completely baffled by the latest about-turn from the government that now apparently allows Parisiens to go & contaminate the rest of the country for Easter on the pretext that they are taking children to stay with grand-parents. Or am I missing something somewhere?

Perhaps it is just that Macron wants to visit Le Touquet? However, his own rules won't allow him to walk on the beach...

He is like a kite dancing in a hurricane (like James Bond was before him…). Better check the durability of the string tho…

First meeting of the french Historic Tour, Albi now postponed to postponed to 9/11 July (announced three days before the start). I dont see Le Castellet 10000 Tours to be held on schedule. As to (NOT to be confused with GPAO) french Dijon meeting 9/11 May…

Not actually race dates, but affecting race attendance: MSV publishing today new instructions from Government:


"New guidance was issued by government on Tuesday 6 April which contradicts the previous position that spectators would be permitted at non-elite sport events from Step Two of the roadmap (12 April onwards).
Whilst outdoor attractions like zoos and theme parks can reopen, and events such as boot fairs, steam rallies and food festivals can take place with up to 4,000 visitors per day, a specific ban has been applied to spectators at sport events - even at grassroots level - until 17 May.
This means that all events due to take place between 12 April and 17 May will now be run behind closed doors, and only essential personnel may attend.
MSV is incredibly disappointed by this development. The UK government is now actively encouraging people to get outside and enjoy the fresh air, and circuit venues are by their very nature wide-open spaces like parks, with ample room to enable social distancing across dozens of spectator viewing areas. Nevertheless, we must comply with this new guidance and all affected customers will be contacted by email with options on how to manage their booking - including obtaining refunds.

Spectators will be welcome at all MSV race events from Saturday 22 May, in compliance with COVID-secure guidance issued by government at that time.
Access to all working areas (e.g. paddocks, pit lanes and garages) will be limited to competitors, volunteer officials, marshals and those providing a service at the event, until further notice.
Ticket sales for events due to take place in Step 3 (17 May to 21 June) will be limited and must be purchased in advance. There is no requirement for season pass holders to notify us of their attendance beforehand, other than for the BTCC event at Snetterton and the Truck Racing event at Brands Hatch.
A range of physical distancing measures will be in place across the site, including grandstands. You must not attend in a group of more than 30 people.
We anticipate that from 21 June all limits on the number of race event attendees will be removed. The vast majority of our major race meetings are now scheduled to take place after this date."

I'm sure we will all have our views on the logic that allows Beaches and parks to be packed, whilst not allowing spectators at a variety of blooming great parks, but hey-ho.......
