A bit early but people are already talking about it! A must for an awful lot of people- competitors, spectators, Marshals, classic car owners......

I can’t imagine not being there, even if I’m just kicking tyres!

I’ve asked about the possibility using the Tour Espania as precedent.
Chances of getting away with it?
More chance of Trumper going a whole day without once bending the truth!

Logistics for such an event is slightly more complicated than for a track only event. Closing roads, finding hotels and restaurants for all the competitors and the assistance crews must not be an easy task I guess. I would love to see your Talbots at Grand Palais of Paris at the end of August! Elles auraient fière allure.

I hear France have now officially put a ban on all events with large spectator participation until mid July, hence TdF now moved!

Right Mike, Tour Auto Optic 2000 (official name…) had been re-scheduled on August 31, September 5. 2020 I mean…

What is said by our prez' is often moderated by PM or others one day later. For instance May 11 is what they think could be a partial end of confinement, lock down, a date TBC and not for everyone. The situation is so unusual to say the least that I won't blame them to be unsure.

Peter Auto suggest a nice free toy here:

For Le Mans Classic or Mazda fans. As to the wonderful sound of the original machine, knowing spiting on your screen is not encouraged, manage yourself and be happy!

Just for the smile, we're many to consider using our race cagoules because we have not enough face masks ATM…

Would really love to see you at Tour Auto Mike but I must warn you… If some of JR drivers are attacked by kangaroos, in our forests we too have wild animals. That are called… squirrels! Guess what? They can fly over a Talbot!

Wasn't there another cranially challenged US president who had issues with T'rrist Squi'rrls?

Dunno. US prez'?
Just heard about a guy in Alabama feeding his squirrel with meth! The poor animal was supposed to become more dangerous than a trained german shepherd…
