Don’t get that much snow at Anglesey. But the car with the heaviest ballast stands the best chance of staying on the circuit in November laugh.

Having just listened to the last daily briefing (for now), I’d say that a November race event in wales is somewhat optimistic!

We’ve been offered a three meeting championship up here, with a meeting mid September and two in October.

Having given it a lot of thought, I’ve decided not to go ahead with what was due to be my first years racing. There’s a lot of things I don’t think are particularly clever - self scrutineering being one of them, the potential for our championships to be decided over three half day race meetings bringing out a whole host of driving standards questions with folk going for gaps that aren’t there etc.

Just doesn’t make sense for me in my own particular situation sadly.

Im the exact same situation im now saving that money for a house move which I was planning for next year. Surprising how much you save when your not spending it on your race car.

Specially in Anglesey where there has been a big outbreak in a food factory. Even without that dripford is not letting go of his control over wales on doing something different to England.

Have attended the late November Anglesey meeting several years now, and have been lucky to have had glorious weather on race day. That streak of luck can't last...

One of the good things about anglesey is the track dries quickly when its not raining. Its a nice circuit, i took an F1 car there last year for a filming day with the BBC, it gave some spectacular shots using drone cameras flying in from the sea.

Where having 7 rounds of 2 or 3 races per round (mostly 3). They've cancelled the championship though so each race will be an individual thing.
Probably just going to do 3 or 4 of them.

Why what’s the latest news from wales ? Our series is due to race at Anglesey at the end of August - has something changed ?

Suspect that August will be just fine. However, Whitty and Valence made it very clearly yesterday that this is only the start of the pandemic and we will be still dealing with it this time next year. Expect a significant resurgence through the winter, and that would make a late November event date in Wales (which has been a struggle throughout) appear to be slightly dodgy.

Not really, BRSCC have held their Winter meet there at the end of November for the past few years.

Bit chilly but the sun usually shines.

Also anyone who has raced in RoR over Remembrance weekend will tell you it can be wet, it can be windy, it can be cold and it is usually all three but it is fine.

I'm going back racing next month at snetterton. 750 MC have done a good job of getting us a 4 meeting / 8 race championship. Can't wait.

Great news that. 750MC always seem to have the competitors best interest at the centre of their decisions.

I’ve taken a decision to give it a miss this year.
Competing for me is so much more than purely the driving, it's the friendships, having the family down etc ...paying full year registration fees etc for half seasons and the restrictions in place just takes the fun out of it for me sadly.

Good luck to any of you out there and stay safe

Pretty decent grids for the first meeting back at Combe this Saturday.

Great that the drivers can support the club and circuit through these times, will make a huge difference.

MSV are allowing spectators into events from the 11th July.

No paddock access and reduced grandstand capacity but otherwise seems normal enough.

If you book in advance, grandstands are socially distanced, and it does not say how many spectators they are allowing. This might have to change anyway if the Leicester situation spreads.

Grids look pretty strong everywhere which is surprising! I’m glad we can go back to watching again - missed motorsport like mad.
