morninggents should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Perhaps some of the organisations that buy races from the event organiser and charge way over the top entry fees could be asked to contribute to the appeal thereby preserving their future moneymaking activities.

They are probably already licking their own wounds over the raft of other cancelled classic/historic events to contribute to someone elses...

I don't have any sympathy and there are far more worthy things to donate to in the present circumstances. The various companies behind the Classic will have racked up millions since they took it on.
The last ten or more years have also seen the growth of commercial championships who buy grids and sell on the places. Again hugely profitable. The series I raced in got taken over and run for profit and now I can't afford to race.

I have loved the Classic for years, and always attended the full 3 days . I am happy for my 2020 ticket money to be retained for next year but I am not happy about being asked to prop up the organisation as if it were a charity. Like most of us I donate to a few, including Medecin sans Frontieres, and the idea of support up a hitherto profitable business by donation does not sit well with me .

I am amazed they did it (perhaps they saw Goodwood ask for'donations'?) as surely externally it looks like an act of desperation?

The extremely poor take up, only goes to cement the concept as a bad idea IMO.
