I wasn't allowed to go to Cadwell Apr 24th, or to Mallory May 1st. BUT I could have joined 5,000 others with no masks at a rave in Liverpool or sat shoulder to shoulder, knees in someones back at the Crucible to watch snooker. I think the Crucible is the smallest venue to hold big matches.



I mean, lets face it, there's not much space at Cadwell is there ?
Very unfair comment as the "rave" was a strictly controlled affair with ongoing testing as an experiment. The results of this will guide advice going forwards. Same with the snooker and the FA Cup matches.

Yeah - for the Liverpool event had to produce a negative test to gain admission, submit test and trace info, and attendees will be retested later this week - as said as a controlled test - and of course 90% of attendees will have been of an age with very low risk of hospitalisation even if infected. Conversely of course probably few had been vaccinated.



Trying to work out whether we'll be allowed spectators for our next event at Donington on 30 May.......

The good Doctor has to pay for his new Resort Complex somehow ...

But more likely it may be a Government anti-obesity campaign requirement.

Next up? Personal CO2 output measurements with quotas applied.

Anything above whatever the Govt. decides is "normal" will attract a use tax.


"Elite" athletes watch out.

Pensioners may be allowed to sell any excess and unrequired breathing rights allowances to younger people as a means of redistributing wealth. A bit like Tesla selling credits to other parts of the motor industry.

Seems PA at Dijon is on and notice that most are races are considered to qualify for ‘Elite’ drivers and presumably there dads and grandads!
The Brits will be allowed to go legally!

Yes allowed and legally. Not obliged… As to the Elite thing it seems to be the case for many meetings now.

Donington Hall - I understand the PH to be a separate sale according to Andy97.

Don’t think he has bought the Priest House but has bought Donington Hall and intends to turn that into an exclusive hotel and “motor house” (to store and prepare high end cars) including a private drive up to Donington Park on a reinstated internal road over (a presumably rebuilt) Starkey’s Bridge.

The Priest House is to be operated by Legacy Hotels but no idea if they have bought it or operating it as a going concern on behalf of the administrators of the Norton Motorbikes debacle.

In France there appears to be the "Olympic status" however how this translates over to the UK in allowing competitors to be classes as Elite I am not sure John? Do Motorsport UK count that as on the International calendar?

Gerard would you advise us not even to be thinking about coming over? Or people to be travelling to Dijon from other EU countries?

Just seen Masters post that Paul Ricard is classed as Elite. I would thought Dijon may therefore be the same. (or they will have applied for same process)

Good question Will… I dont encourage anyone to travel abroad till things are not made clear. We have only 6.9 M people having had two jabs, 2.2 being over 80. Not the kind of driver you expect to meet on any tack…
From 15 June, anyone asking for a jab will be eligible while Official gov' website states that l état d'urgence est prolongé jusqu'au 1 Juin.

I'm certainly not the best example but being in the over 60 range I just had my first jab one week ago thanks to a Tenther who helped me a lot. Borders opening, meetings held or not, series or whatever you wont see me on a race track before four weeks after the second jab.
