Yes there were 2 of the German based Touring Car Legends races, bit like MRL's Touring Car Challenge or the Peter Auto one, but with a few oddities thrown in!

According to the event schedule, it seems Touring Car Legends and Renault Clio Cup only.

However looking at the event programme online it only mentions the Legends race in the support list.

Ah well, nice to have something a bit different in the support races. Was great back in the day when you had national series supporting the GP, which only Australia does nowadays

how many people/spectators were at the track though and was there an increased risk of spread because of the spectators?

rather, was this a trade off between the circuit making some money off of ticket sales vs the need to provide more action throughout the day?

or is the new format going forward? F1 tickets are expensive and if i was a paying spectator, i would expect some other events to fill out my days at the track.

Isn’t this because F1 is trying to destroy all other ICE series. I read that somewhere. COVID is a convenient excuse.

Or, things all came together relatively late in the day and sorting out logistics, costs and everything was all relatively last minute.

No can’t be that there must be more to it
