2m separation? Drink beer through a face mask with hole for a straw, liquidised food?

I remember my nuclear, biological, chemical defence (NBCD) training in the military - they genuinely thought we could operate in all over protection suits and a respirator mask, whilst drinking and feeding ourselves whilst decontaminating ourselves too. We would have all been dead from either dehydration and / or heat stroke or from whatever the nasties were within hours!!! Cheery thought!

John I think politicians are already talking about sport events in July. In the other hand for the scientists its a no, no… May be a chance here, our meetings bringing few spectators!

Techno Classica Essen is in late June. It'll cost me if I have to cancel my hotel...

I remember the place, you've better use a trottinette if you want to have a chance to see everything. I'm always surprised to see how many good Alfa and AutoDelta parts specialists they have in Germany…

Alfa's are quite strong in Germany. There are some very good specialists there too.

One of my near neighbour's keeps whizzing past on a trottinette; I don't think I will ask her if I can borrow it though!

I do remember you could rent one in any big fair. Francfort is a fantastic place for toys… Isn't Milano a replica of Essen now?

Essen is a nice venue, much nicer than the scruffy hole where Retromobile is held. Much of it has been progressively updated in the last year or two.

For Frankfurt, do you mean where the IAA Motor Show was held (it is there no more)? That's enormous, I remember going from one hall to another in a mini-bus!

Milan I have never been. I was planning to go to Alfa's 110th birthday on 24 June but that now clashes with Essen & I guess may not happen anyway.

Get with the times.... now you need a Trottinette Électrique. Some of them are incredibly fast. (and no doubt dangerous)

No relationship with Motors Cup! by HVM.
Seems they hold it like this. If anyone is tempted to join a french grid you'll be warmly welcome. Val de Vienne is a nice track and Nogaro just great. Far from Calais obviously but great! Really.

At least it’s happening. Hope you get a good grid. Some pretty neat tracks in France and although it’s a bit of trek, I’m sure plenty of drivers from Britain will be interested

Only the small issue of 14 days quarantine to consider. I don't think the requirement has been changed to cover France.

Indeed. Things change rather quickly those days. In fact I dont recommend to travel just give some options to race in France for those interested in.

You can avoid the quarantine, Peter...

Arrange an arrive 'n drive deal in France so that you only need personal travel. There are plenty of people criss-crossing the Channel in rubber dinghies - you'll even get an escort service from the French Navy! On your return you will be welcomed with open arms by Border Farce who will willingly by-pass all formalities for you. Job done

And now, international starring, Biloute John becomes Popeye John sailing a Zodiac! May be you have some British Seagull engines for sale?
Nothing to be scared about our Navy, Peter, remember Trafalgar… They just changed the uniforms!
