Is the Coppice entrance to the infield for cars and pedestrians or just the latter ?

The entrance gate was in use as the vehicle access to the raised disabled parking area at Coppice for the GTs, but the tunnel to the infield was for pedestrians only as far as I could see.

I'm in the last race on Sunday - eating plenty of carrots between now and then!

The bonus, I suppose, is that, if all goes well in qualy and I don't need to do much to the car before the race, then it allows plenty of time to watch the first few races without panicking about being late for mine.

Quite keen to get to this, and the weather forecast is OK for Sunday, so fingers crossed

Last time I was at Donington a couple of months ago I think the old Main entrance by the former museum was closed for all but Auction house connected traffic and all spectator traffic had to go to the Tarmac Lake. All access was through a pedestrian gate directly to the section between Redgate and Holly Wood. However there did seem to be some car access there as well so maybe that was also disabled vehicle entry.

The Coppice Tunnel has not been used for a while other than for spectators at occasional meetings. Often there is some sort of agricultural trailer parked in there presumably to ensure the gates at the tunnel entrance are not opened. The new tunnel is not accessible from inside the circuit boundary.

I'm not sure what they did about parking for blue badge holders at the official Coppice area - could not quite see that from where I watched on the day.

Social distancing in the new Grandstand presumably but at least it is advertised as being free.

The roads around the outside of the circuit from the Paddock entrance to the old Main gate were closed off.

Whether things will be different now I have no idea. I doubt it. The new restrictions are, generally, more restricting now than they were at the time of my visit.

Donington has advised this to me today - "it's just the Hollywood gate open for spectators this weekend. Upon arrival to the venue follow the red signs for public parking."
So that's a long walk to Coppice for infield access.

We normally watch the racing from the inside of the old hairpin but I guess we will save ourselves 4 miles of walking and view from outside of the old hairpin. Not bothering with a camera as Donny isn't a great place to shoot even in the best of times.

Can't believe the DAF 55 is 9th reserve in the special saloons.

Is there an official livestream, or is this post just a vain hope for one?

Thanks Both, will have fun with that!

*Edit* Will it be more than one camera or will it be a single camera job?
