Shows and future events query.

More of a query into seeing if ROs are thinking of running events.

4TH July seems to be the day of further things to be reopened and lower lockdown level (if you'd call that) thus with motorsport events being allowed to resume.

As such are people interested in this or is it going to be a scrap off the year and forget even if such things are to reopen and happen like it is being intended too.

Only reason is I saw an ad for tunerfest North with suggestions stating it may well run if things are to go to plan. Being the 11th July. Are any ROs considering or not? Seems doubtful but there's hope I guess.

Cheers,

Chris.

Hi Chris

Personally thinking regarding my role as RO presently at this time I won't be holding any events this year.

its my personal feeling that its not a good idea with people still dying and getting Covit19 that gatherings of events should happen.

Others opinions may differ of course, but ultimately I want to keep myself safe and my family.

Hi Chris

As you may know the ticketed events at Castle Combe that I organised (JDM and Rally Day) have been officially 'postponed' but I suspect they will be Cancelled for 2020 by the venue. We will also effectively run out of weekends when the weather will be 'suitable' as well by the time this horrible virus can be sensibly managed from a risk to the public point of view. Also bear in mind that Winter is when sickness rates of all things spike more. I expect that all the events (tickets) will be honoured and re-booked for 2021. This is exactly what Goodwood have already done for their world class events.

Like Dan, it's not really 'worth the risk'. I have started driving my car again personally to enjoy it, and if I do any meets they will be at quiet places where people can distance properly and to help them with their mental well being of socialising safely if needed.

Locally I will say that I have just carried on driving past any of the usual local meeting/stopping places local to me. They have looked crazy busy and carry an unnaceptable risk.

I live in a seaside city and it was ridiculous down the beach yesterday (I was out driving with no intention to stop) and even normally quiet areas were too busy. It was worse that it would be during normal times. So my point echoes Dan's, probably not this year as the majority cannot behave sensibly enough for the minority of us to meet up safely.

Hope this makes sense.

Fair points. I thought i would ask as others may ask at some point. There's almost 0 meets around me anyways since everything is shut up and are rather very small in terms of population.

Just seeing that these things may go on makes you wonder. Again worth asking.

Probably best to do the underside now

Thanks for the input.
