If I remember correctly from previous years the final alleged timetable has been quite a late publication and still subject to change.


It seems to align somewhat with the proposed entry applications closure date.

Timetable now available - some qualifying on each day this year which seems to make sense for anyone racing on the Sunday.
Really pleased to see races for Formula Atlantic cars. Hope they can get a good grid of cars out. They should sound and look great.

Yes that'l be good!!

I've only seen the odd car out in various libre events over the years, the category was at the end of it's main life here when I started watching racing.

Scary that it was 40 years ago!

Whilst I remain sceptical about scope and severity of COVID despite much info warning us, i would imagine this meeting is now 50/50?

In the daily press conference tonight, Boris Johnson alluded to a timescale of 12 weeks to 'turn the tide' on the virus, as long as social isolation is maintained in the meantime, which would point to mid/late June as first possible time to resume racing?

Yes 12 weeks must be about right (well done Boris!) as I understand it from a friend whose son has been holed up in a hotel for weeks, China's schools/work etc are just about to go back.

I believe we are circa 10 weeks behind them in terms of the rise of virus cases?

Excellent!

Just in time to make all of the Ventilators the rest of the world needs.

Plenty of spare planes to fly them to wherever they are required.

Yay!!

Would we trust F1 teams to make medical devices the world needs? They wouldn't be able to resist the competitive element!!

Let’s keep on topic please......

Surprised no announcement on this meeting, yet. Maybe as it’s after the MSUK ban ends.

Me too, but it is very close to the end of the current ban, so if MSUK extend it at the end of April that will leave very little notice and make it all look a bit F1 ish. They will surely be building any event infrastructure (marquee's) before the MSUK ban ends, same with exhibitors and paddock set up.

As an event bod myself, we have already postponed one event that was in around 2 months time(albeit not the scale of Donington Festival) to 2021 and have the venue and infrastructure all booked for that already.

Sometimes you have to bite on the bullet and anticipate rather than get sucked into the waiting game and then run out of time, the nearer you get to the event, the higher your cancellation or postponement costs.

Sadly I can see some of the commercial event organisers and promoters taking a real financial hit this year.
