That is what I was wondering, no entry list tends to say it wont be going on. I do know of marshals picking up tickets yesterday though.

Situation is evolving every day. Apart the governments woeful response of course.

It really shouldn't be that less than a couple of weeks before one of the big historic meets of the year that all are still wondering whats happening and waiting for yet more announcements.

I'd suggest the government has told us. No major events will be supported by emergency services. What are you looking for?

One week ago I was just back from holiday in Portugal and looking forward to Sebring and a full calendar of motorsport. As of today my entire company is working from home; my elderly parents are having food deliveries left on their doorstep to avoid contact; sport has ground to a halt; borders are closed; flights are grounded and the Govt has just announced that social and cultural events must stop. The speed of it all is breathtaking. And you're grumpy about not knowing two weeks out whether a race meet will happen?

Whether race meets happen is the last of my worries. It's just this is a motor racing forum ( who would have known ) so I was only mentioning that and my previous sentence..

Don't assume things that are put in words on a screen and are not said with vocal emotion or a telling expression to go with or that I am grumpy too. How can you tell if I am?

don't assume that words in certain combinations don't carry emotion or expression - they do.

The government have been playing a blinder on this IMO by issuing guidance rather than edicts. In case you've never thought about it, we Brits don't respond well to edicts.
However the varied responses from businesses has shown up the difference between the sensible and competent, and the selfish / lazy / greedy / incompetent (delete as appropriate).

Yed they can all too well. Although not refering to the posts on here one might be sarcastic or be a joke to someone but not change the wording and the receiver may have no idea.

As always in life everything depends on well everything specific to the situation and previous.

The government has done well but they need to issue a ban so that those who have business interruption insurance can actually claim on it. As it stands the only businesses protected are the insurance companies, who won't have to pay out as small business income is decimated.

And the reduction in interest rates - that only helps as long as it's passed on. I haven't had a note from my bank yet giving me the good news, I expect it's delayed in the post.

I've no doubt that certain businesses will have a good pandemic, but the leisure industry won't be one of them.

I think there are some pretty good videos around from previous members meetings. Love to see them posted for all to watch in this period of no current activity.

I'll be popping in to the circuit tomorrow for a test day; the HRDC test on Monday was quite well supported by competitors but in all reality I am anticipating cancellation of the meeting which on a purely selfish level will be particularly gutting for me.

just had an email from Goodwood

the event has been postponed,
new date not yet known

Foreign competitors, especially from overseas, would not haven been able to attend anyway with the travel bans coming into force, or end up getting stranded in the UK
