I don't think any of our news outlets are particularly unbiased or reliable now lol. I'm a lefty and even I can't stand the Guardian.

Yeah, you're right there. Sadly the last few months have shown the appalling state of journalism in this country...

Unfortunately the recent social distancing has meant that the media in general only ever meet/talk to other media so therefore they all merge into one bloob as far removed from ordinary people as they ever were. rant over back to motor racing, currently enjoying the BTCC meet great to watch real racing again.

I think loads of these stories are floated by "a source close to government" to test the water. They never see the light of day in the real world, having seen the reaction of the public/experts outside the usual inner circle etc.

You mean "out of focus groups."

Doomy speculation post - please ignore if possitive mindset is wished to be kept

Infection numbers are starting to grow here in Denmark again, nothing out of control, but still quite alarming.
Many of these increases are believed to originate from social events, which has been part of the reopening of the danish community.

Looking at the sporting events of the fall, quite a few events starts before Le Mans. If these events leads to a more dramatic increase is COVID-19 spread, I fear that Le Mans will be one of the first events to get the axe. This is due to the amount of spectators, the origin of the spectators and that it is ~one month after the first big rescheduled events.

The right to close this years 24h of Le Mans for spectators therefore seem quite likely - unless the european population gets their head together again and keep safe distances...

Sadly I agree.

I'm not sure there will any scientific reasoning around any decision, it will be purely political, does France want to be seen to be 'open for business/tourism' or doing something/anything to prevent the virus spreading.

I have just been told that the map of the villages which has been shared on here is still provisional and confirmation of arrangements by the ACO will be made on or just after 17th August, which is when the French government will announce what is allowed for gatherings going forward into September. So we can expect more clarity after 17th August and those dealing direct with the ACO are unlikely to hear before then.

I have been able to change camp site to keep my booked grandstand ( subject to any future changes) and so will join the Court of the Crimson King this year

Angers and Tours are back to green (low)
Le Mans is still in vigilance

Pascal, you are right but pay attention to the data. The situation is evolving day by day. Due to the proximity with the departement "La Mayenne" we could have a different situation in a few days. Or not. I am trying to avoid speculating in the covid data .

I cannot find more updated and accurate data.
I hope we won't be at the same rate than in Spain before the 6 next weeks : 5700 more cases today.
