porsche962fan should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
you can have a weather forecast that early ? if it's those greasy conditions it's all in favour of Cammish

Turkington must be again that all attack mode otherwise it's game over and Tingram already is in that mode

55% chance of rain basically means we haven't got a clue, remember

Exactly. When the TV weather man says "mixed" then the only thing that's 100% is they have no clue and they're hedging their bets. Where's Michael Fishy Fingers when you need him?

I know Brits are supposedly a nation that loves to talk about the weather.
Who would have thought that there would be so much concern over a weather forecast?

much of the support paddock is usually driving out or nearly ready to go as soon as the last touring car race starts on sunday. there's very few awnings still up at least; you're allowed to bring them down when the second race starts iirc.

the touring car teams usually pack up in the dark anyway...?

Perhaps someone who knows the regulations can answer this question. Paul Rivett posted on social media yesterday that he had completed 300km of testing at Snetterton.
I thought that unless it was an official test, teams weren't allowed to test at a circuit that was still to be raced that season?

The answer lies somewhere between:

[Testing] cannot be undertaken at a venue using a circuit configuration which largely consists of that which is used at a Meeting of the 2020 Championship until after that Meeting, unless with the specific written authorisation of the Administrator.

And:

'It's a COVID-affected season so the regulations are being waived slightly'
