If the common sense prevails the "neighbors" should follow quickly. This is a worldwide problem.

FIA Lurani Trophy 2020

For your information and on behalf of the FJHRA.

---

FIA Lurani Trophy 2020

We have taken the decision, to officially cancel the FIA Lurani Trophy 2020.

The spirit of the FIA Lurani Trophy has always been that it is an International Competition, and even if pockets of Europe are able to open and try to find their feet again in public events and business, it is unlikely that competitors from all sides of Europe, let alone the globe, would be able to freely attend what races may find viability and a rescheduled date.

If or when any racing does take place this year, we will of course still do the events that we have in our calendar, however they will be run instead as stand-alone non championship events.

With imaginative hope, we look forward to the FIA Lurani Trophy 2021 Season.

Not much time for crash damage repairs and rebuilds in that schedule!
How many teams have the full time staff to run that sort of schedule? I thought that many of them had a small permanent staff augmented by part timers at weekends.

I think there has to be some management of expectation here.

The delayed start to the season means the schedule will be condensed. This will cause challenges for teams, and so we should anticipate that some events won't see a full grid as a result.

I have my own view, but what is better?
A) A full(ish) season in a short calendar, with reduced grids on occasion.
B) A partial season with more time between rounds, with full(er) grids.

Best case, they can run those behind closed doors. But that in itself will depend on what the people limit is.

Anyone who thinks 35,000 will be gathering together come August is barking mad.

I'm also baffled at the constant publicaton of updated calendars from different championship organisers. Keep it behind the scenes and only announce anything to the public when they absolutely 100% know the events can happen. They're just adding fuel to the fire, plenty of people will take this as gospel and then there'll be the inevtable uproar on social media when it changes again.

Club racing calendars being chopped and changed to accommodate the big boys already.
Inevitable really.

I'm wondering where the marshals are going to come from for this flood of events - I know BTCC is a big draw for marshals, but after the lockdown is eased in whatever format there are going to be a lot of other demands on people's time....

Following our PM announcement, football stadiums could re open in September. under conditions, the said conditions are not clear at the moment. So may be Dijon 15 August could be a reality. I dont think spectators are needed financial wise.

According to the BBC all sporting events are cancelled until September. This article is about football but that would seem to prohibit Dijon in August.

Well the Pau historic has already been cancelled, along with the Le Mans classic, so Dijon could end up with the same fate, unless things drastically improve

May be we could have something happening mid-August depending on the local situation. Probably no spectators allowed but what about marshaling? More likely it will start end of August/ beginning of September. At the moment some dates in July still appear in the calendars but this seems totally not realistic.
