Elite sport is still permitted, so BTCC should still be able to go ahead.

Really are you sure? So a full lockdown but elite sport is allowed? Why’s elite sport so important?

it's not a full lockdown either - people can still go to work, kids are going to school and students are still at uni. and race paddocks are workplaces.

motorsport uk has advised that racing continues in areas with local restrictions previous to these measures so i can't really see any reason why it'd change. hotels can still accommodate guests for work reasons. we can all have takeaways in our rooms/at the circuits as per usual.

I'm pretty sure all club level motorsport will be off for the rest of the year. Being someones workplace doesn't gain it protection, otherwise the pubs, gyms and restaurants would be staying open too.

Elite level sport to continue, with current measures in place. Confirmed.

no, but we don't have guests, unlike all of the above. or rather, we wouldn't have guests if the btcc teams didn't keep taking the mickey and inviting tens of people each.

it's just a bunch of people going to work.

Nothing to stop those places having staff in.

The restrictions stop them opening to customers etc.

Because elite sport is recognised as having a significant amount of people who are professional, and those sports have established procedures and processes that present minimal risk.

Hopefully it will still go ahead. The title fight is still on and it would be a shame to have an anti climax like this

Going back to a much earlier point raised about the Audi A3, according to posters here, it has one of the worst aero drag ratios, which is ironic when the old Audi A4 Quattro allegedly had one of the lowest aero drag ratios of the supertouring era.
