2020 Supercar Events

It will be interesting to see what happens now that a 500 person limit has been put on public gatherings. That is sure to put a big red hole on gate takings at the tracks running SC events. When some members of the teams get ill that will cause huge problems as well.

If you run without spectators, could a Supercars event work with less than 500 people?

Even then, as you say Casper, all it takes is someone in the paddock testing positive to throw a spanner in the works.

Add in the support race paddock and bust goes the 500 people limit.

They could strip out all non essential personnel which might help with numbers.

Does the 500 person limit apply to the organisation and running of the event or the spectators or even a combination of everyone, the latter I would assume. It would now be safe to assume that motor sport just got shut down along with every other spectator sport especially if it involves body contact or repeated handling of say a cricket ball. Anyone want to buy a SC franchise? If this is going to be long winded expect permanent changes to the infrastructure of motor sport in Oz and overseas as well.

How is a non-Supercars Events promoter, eg..Winton, supposed to get anything out of a V8 round if no spectators are allowed?

The commonly held opinion is that after all the pennies are counted a single SC event does not make a huge amount of money for the promoter and it is the track days, track hire etc that creates the cash flow. SMSP is booked solidly every day for instance and as a multi venue site works well in that regard. The daily business of running the track may not be affected at all in fact. I used to be at Wakefield a lot during the week testing and developing and at times we were the only ones there.

News item last night mentioned Tasmanian government considering banning all events with more than 500 people attending.
I canít see Symmons Plains running, NZ definitely wonít be happening.
2020 season might be decided on Adelaide results.

The 500 limit would be stretched , if you include supports, catering, marshalls, media, set up, take down ,security, depending on the track, local staff , etc etc
the numbers can get up quickly.

Doubt it. Worldwide the max crowd numbers for events are getting lower, and I cant see them allowing a larger number for any events, indoor, outdoor, whatever.

The season is done. Let's all work on Gen 3 regs and come back with the new era next year. That's if there's a tv network left to sign a new deal with or an airline left to fly anyone around with.

Sport is just going to have to realize there are more important things in life right now and take a back seat.
