Well, as Andy said they do run them here. I don't know if there would be an appetite for it but then again we didn't know that a three hour race (The Pall Mall Cup) would be of interest until last year. But, as I said, would be a great way to "reopen" historic motorsport. I would also expect the car clubs to be interested since they've had a dearth of events to attend.

Anglesey can run a 24 hour race (although the last 24 hour to be scheduled there was cancelled due to a lack of marshals). Snetterton can run a single 24 hour race a year (albeit 2CVs have that race sown up).

I hardly understand why you'd have a 24 hour race. LMC is not a 24H format… The name refers to, yes, but six grids are hosted during 24 hours. I see a difference here.

Yes, but don’t they race those 6 grids in a series of short races through the night? The circuit has to be able to operate for 24 hours and that is now problematic in the U.K.
Peter’s suggestion is probably the only workable one but there may still be curfew issues.

Yes they do, Andy, you're correct. Let's face the situation: its not realistic to plane a great international meeting before September now. You dont need to go abroad. You dont need foreign entries. You dont need to race at night. If this is right, why not studying a "bespoke" meeting hosting one or several 3 H race as Peter mentions, hold over a weekend or may be three days?
And again, marshaling and the different safety staffs mus not be forgotten.

Adjusting the entry fees to the entrants makes that you dont need spectators either.

Of course there is also the likelihood that many of the overseas entrants wouldn't be able to attend so a shorter format would probably fit. I don't know the split between UK based and overseas based entrants but let's say 50/50 so a shorter circuit to cope with reduced grids would need a long circuit but not the length of Le Mans.

Three one hour races over a 34 hr period is as much as many of Pre 60 cars can do.

Not the duration! The period… Long weekend I guess.

Yes, I think it was a typo, but presumably, you'd need a qualifying day plus the two race days.

You have the clubs, the owners, the drivers, specialists, the will, the power, the money, the tracks and many other people/things making the list to long to mention, so as delta would say WTF the rest of the world?
Discuss with your clubs, support them or buy them.

There is one caveat. Two of our posters tried to run a 6hrs event which based on 10/10s was a winner. Sadly it struggled to garner entries.

Ooops, I see. Before Covid I guess? How many clubs could cooperate to make a big event, forgetting about too long term races?

Over three days, one three hour, two two hour, plus sprints do you really need foreign entries and spectators fees?
