Optimum Motorsport swap the aussie pair of Martin Berry & Nick Foster for young Mclaren factory drivers Lewis Proctor and Ollie Wilkinson (in addition to Ollies GTWC campaign)

They also confirmed both GT4 Mclarens are out of the season

Down to 22 cars for the opener from 35.

Pretty huge hit, big shame for the series having landed one of the biggest GT3 entries in the series history.

There will be some additional race by race entries later in the season to boost things a little.

Iím sure we will still see good racing as always

While itís a massive shame to lose a number of entries, I feel 22 should be sufficient enough.

It's enough for a good race, but that's a lot of entries to lose.

i’ve just looked down the paddock and everybody i can see unable to socially distance and/or not smoking, drinking or eating is wearing a mask. so i’d say there’s patchy adherance to the rules but generally people are trying their best.

Agreed, it's patchy.
Inside of Dentons seems to be where adherence to the guidelines has been abandoned.

Appreciate there are less track staff but to spend the last 20 minutes under SC is farcical imo.

Well, it was more than twenty minutes and they never got the race on. Recovery has always been something of a weak point at Oulton. They never seemed to have the equipment or know how to get it done fast. Donington, would have had that cleared up in ten minutes tops.

Any race that ends under a safety car is a farce. A red flag and safety car start would have been fine, what happened was not, yet happens most meetings at Oulton. For years BGT, has been blighted by poor recovery at Oulton. Damn shame.

I have been to 8 "day visitor experiences" in the last four weekends at MSV venues and Mallory. Today at Oulton Park was the busiest; by contrast, Mallory yesterday for EMRA bikes and sidecars was very quiet on the visitor front and in some cases 20m distancing would have been easily possible !

Generally, the visitors seem to have been distancing to a reasonable extent, if not a full 2min every case, but certainly no worse than many shops, or perhaps more saliently, in crowds celebrating football team triumphs, at raves or on trains to the coast.

Dentons did look busy with all the cars parked behind but viewing from the other side of the track, it looked as if many were in smallish, presumably family / related groupings.

On the racing front, great to hear a field of GTs again but the last quarter of the second race was a little, shall we say, frustrating for the spectators and no doubt the drivers too.

I was there this weekend and actually on the whole the social distancing was considerably better than any supermarket I've been in over the last few months. I sat at Cascades today, which was fairly busy, and had a nice 6ft perimeter all round me, as did most other people as far as I could tell. Toilets have sanitiser outside for people to use on the way in (which most did) and generally people being sensible. The bar had a one way system, markings on the floor, masks to be worn etc. There were a few of the Prosecco crowd and the 'caps on backwards' Corsa driving types who seemed to have a fairly large 'support bubble' judging by how many of them grouped, but they were easily avoided.

Was a really good weekend and even the poor last race didn't spoil it for me. Did look like they were struggling to load the Aston and I assume the McLaren had a gearbox issue or something which meant they needed the crane to lift it. Not completely sure why they decided to concentrate on recovering the Supra which had been in the same spot for a number of laps without issue, was obvious with 3 cars involved in the incident that it was going to be tight to get any meaningful green flag racing....but I wasn't on the radio, nor at any of the stranded cars, so my opinion means squat and there would've been reasons decisions were made and things took time.

In retrospect, yes, but on the face of it you'd have thought 2 of the cars could easily have been dragged. On the latter point, does Oulton have a curfew? I assume that no track action until 12pm was due to local constraints (presumably a church, usually seems to be that).

Relax man its not a big deal. COVID only affects a tiny portion of the population. Thats been well known for a while now.

Saw British GT race on youtube..normally don't watch it but it was pretty good and I enjoyed it more than the ADAC GT Master event this weekend.
