MartinH should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Any news??

Just bumping this back onto the 1st page & to see if anyone has any firm news about this great event ?

Official website has nothing really new.

I got MRL newsletter indicating possible cancelling of their participation, as mostly Brits that would have to isollate for 14 days on return to UK.

Also stories that Masters & others are asking UK Gov for special conditions for returning UK participants.

Spectators yes/no, limited numbers, so nothing clear there yet.

At the moment, anyone staying in Belgium for more that 48Hrs have to fill out an online form on Belg gov website.

Again, strange times we are living in at the moment !!

Do you then have to self isolate at home for the x days waiting time for the result to come through. You do here in Melbourne, and the Police have the power to knock on your door to ensure you are at home self isolating.

from info on another thread, exemption will cover drivers, preparers and support crew. MRL are co-ordinating but it also applies to Masters and HGPCA

As the 6hr event is not a full FIA event, l assume, at the moment the non FIA races, incl the 6hr itself will still happen, but l saw yesterday that on the official 6hr website it now says "behind closed doors" so already no one will be able to attend as a spectator.

Very uncertain times & given the current rules in Belgium, it is still quite possible that the whole event may yet be cancelled.

Final confirmation on 5/9 ?
Itís a very difficult decision for most people .
I have a car thatís due to race along with a couple of others for the gang but being old and decrepit I will not be travelling with them.
Pity as itís the best annual event of the year.
Never understood the lack of spectators as itís a brilliant weekend.

Me neither, its by far the best event as a spectator.

I made a call last month based on several factors ( major house renovations/extension being the primary one) and have settled for a simple 'home' event to blow the dust off my romper suit next month.

Mrs Zef works for BUPA so is closer to the coal face than many, and has been understandably cautious this year. . . Hopefully next year we can all get out and enjoy ourselves a bit more!

Well. If the event runs, and I think it will, I hope to be there reporting. Any quarantine happily served. I will sleep in the car, take plenty of sustenance and enough fuel to avoid stopping.

We probably need a hardy signal team for six hours as our normal gang led by Jez are not travelling.

I dunno about British series but from the official website the meeting is confirmed. No spectators any time, no passenger or instructor during free practice but no sign of cancellation. http://www.spasixhours.com
Free practice will be mandatory or not but each session is € 200.

As to travel in Belgium, new rules TBA from 1st Sept. https://www.info-coronavirus.be/en/faq/ Other infos available in Flamish ATM…
I'm sure Martin can help here.
