Still the 'Superprix' to many, rather than 'the legends of' or whatever it will be called in 2020.... Why do names have to be changed?

Will include FJHRA races in 2020.

All these people visiting the countryside and going to parks isn't because everybody suddenly loves walking! People are craving activity and are using this time to do things they normally wouldn't do- because it's either that or be stuck indoors.

They are also frequenting the internet more to look for things to do- Brands Hatch being open for a race event will be spread around social media and will be a good day out for many people within an hour or so of the venue!

Good for the sport, yes, just not at the moment!
Just limit tickets numbers in that case. I go every year and there used to be more spectators at a 80s club meeting than this event sadly.

Simple solution - advanced tickets only.

We just need to wait and see what the announcement for the next lifting of restrictions is. Providing it is something along the lines of 'Leisure facilities can reopen providing 1/1.5/2m social distancing can be abided to' there is no reason spectators cannot start to be allowed to attend race meetings.

Nice to meet you! I have "self isolated" at Hawthorns for years on GP circuit meetings. Not many there on BTCC days either.

Latest HSCC post says " meeting currently not open to public but this is an evolving scenario and may change at very short notice"
I live in increasing hope of being there....

At the moment I'd quite happily put up with it being allocated vehicle access to South Bank with spectators being asked to remain in their cars, only being allowed out for a socially distanced pee in the woods.

(Preference being given for season ticket holders for purely selfish reasons)

I guess the dilemma for all event organisers now is that with the virus seemingly burning itself out, no one will want to be responsible for another outbreak, so they will all be (or should be) cautious.
