You've got to think there are a lot more rallycross cars/shells sat out there in various garages, would be great to see them resurrected and back in action.
Just down the road from me Bert.

Fingers crossed we get some events in at some point - I can see the Easter meeting at Lydden being cancelled or postponed. Maybe move it towards the end of the year and extend the season that way.

Yeah agreed. John Cross mentioned today that its not looking good for BRX championship at the moment , something to did with events that need paramedics in attendance.

That's going to be a problem for any large event - lots of them are covered by volunteer medical staff - all of whom will be doing lots of overtime at their proper jobs.

I agree the season is looking very promising this year, but I can't see the opening round happening on time. I intend to do both days, but I am holding fire booking anywhere local until a bit nearer the time.

Whilst the season looks promising (virus threat aside) I still don't think it warrants a 2 day meeting - are there really going to be enough entries to justify that?

If they keep coming in at the current rate, then maybe. According to the "5 Nations" handout that was being distributed earlier in the year, the opening round will have every class running, which I think is eight or nine categories?

I believe the Supercars are running four heats as well? (Not sure about the other classes).

I'll be impressed it there are enough to justify it

Seems optimistic - there are 10 confirmed so far, add in 5 more (possible?) maybe four heats for heat one but given the reliability of supercars there won't be four heats by Q3.

Yeah, it is all well and good running multiple classes, but they need to have enough entries to fill them all...

...Supercar and Super National look OK so far, plus there seems to be a regular contingent of Juniors. The rest remain to be seen; I can't see there being a huge number in the Retro 4WD class and the truck rallycross still seems a big unknown.

Sorry, poor wording on my part there. I believe there will be four sets of qualifying heats for Supercars; i.e. Q1, Q2, Q3 and Q4.

I'd completely forgotten about the truck class - that's all gone very quiet hasn't it? Do we know numbers for Supernational - that's been a bit down on numbers recently so it'd be good to see more entries there. Retro 4wd is going to be whichever 6R4 is working, possibly a Doran appearance in an RS200 and maybe Jobb in the Escort? Although I guess the original shape Subarus would be eligible too now?

Ah - ok, that makes more sense! Just supercars getting 4 heats or all classes?
