I think the saddest thing is the inability to travel for fun, no matter where you want to go. But I'm optimistic that we will be set free sometime this year.

I'm too convinced that it will improve, rather shortly. When the vaccination process will have really started here, lets say May, it'll be good. Some major towns, like Nice, and now Paris are asking for a new lockdown.
In total, twenty critical areas are thoroughly monitored. The main question remains the utilisation of a Covid Passport.

It's a pity our beloved leader did not concentrate on getting vaccinations going instead of playing silly politics. Now we are all paying the price...

I have to type this or my brain will explode!

there was a very good programme about the virus and vaccines etc. on BBC last night. Gave a good explanation of how the vaccines work and suggested that all of them are roughly equal in their efficacy. The key point was that in the vast majority of cases they stop hospitalization and therefore death.

Thanks for reading, you've been a wonderful audience. Don't forget to try the veal and tip your waitress. We now return you to the topic

This is a most unfortunate choice of date.

I understand that a tight calendar leads to inevitable clashes.

But to schedule a date for the event on the very weekend of the championship decider races of series that many of the cars entered in the MM usually race in for the rest of the year, boggles the mind.

In Formula Junior, there is now a race at the MM and at the Finals on the same weekend.

I'm convinced that main organisers like Masters, Peter Auto and Goodwood are in contact to find viable solutions. And avoid when possible any clash.
As stated here before, PA precise that "The dates of subsequent events will be confirmed to you as soon as possible, depending on the evolution of the health situation." If my understanding is good, even Spa Classic is concerned. Not to mention our GP de F Historique, impossible to be held without Brit competitors.

I see that HRDC who were to run a meeting at Castle Combe on 5 April, reprising the races abandoned because of torrential downpour last year, have now decided that to comply with the Government guidance on travel, it will be deferred to 30 August. Apparently CCRC are still running their local championship events on 5 April.

This is all the staying overnight stuff. Our event that weekend has been cancelled because there's no overnight camping on site, and hotels are closed to leisure stays. It'll be interesting to see whether CC can keep this commitment.

Britcar have moved two meetings as well. And as said, all because of the inability to stay overnight until 12 April. It does make things difficult. I am not entering Oulton Park on 10 April because: would prefer to travel up the day before and stay over and also feel as though I need to test/ track day there before hand having not sat in any race car since July last year (between lockdowns anyway) but all Oulton days are full.

I would have expected a statement from MSV or MSUK by now to say whether overnight stays at the circuit are actually available/ allowed or not. My understanding from govt advice is that we shouldn’t be staying overnight so it will be interesting to see how many entrants there are that weekend and whether people try to “push the boundaries”!

I see that too. 21/22 May, track day, two grids one "fast" the other "less fast" cars. Each grid will have 8 hours of track in total. But this is TBC because they need at least 50 (Fifty) cars per grid…
I dont think they will have the money in time. 100 cars minimum is a difficult target to reach and they dont even specify the entry fee. More to come on Friday next.
