Im going for Moto 24 end of August. Im open minded, 50% expecting it not to happen...im not buying tickets for example.

Too soon to say if we will get normality back on time

our date at Rouen show is Sat and Sun 19th-20th Sept but the ferry we leave on is 13th of Sept so we will just have to keep our fingers crossed

Normality comes when either the majority of people have had it or a vaccine comes. We aren’t expecting a vaccine to arrive until next and even then that is record breaking speed for one.

From what im gathering some current treatments e.g. for malaria and HIV might actually be the cure, and the usual release rules might be waved in order to stop a global economic meltdown.

Ive contracted for 3 pharmaceutical companies, with one now - this is just what employees are telling me, i know nothing myself i should add.

My current boss at this client told me viruses tend to run put of steam anyway, something to do with mutation?!? He expects normality around June / July (they dont spread well in heat apparently).

That maybe explains why September was chosen

I remain hopeful. I think it is more likely than not we will not see any events take place this year.

Seems odd then that the worst places in europe are hotter countries rather than northern ones.

N Italy is cold atm. It needs 26 C apparently to kill it on open surfaces...that's quite hot, not even Spain is achieving that atm

News articles from 2 yrs ago:
200000 Chinese factory workers making products on the cheap with a "made in Italy" badge in sweat shops in N Italy


Guess where most of them are from?
Wuhan.

Guess where most of them went for Chinese New Year?

And yet its some big surprise Italy has it worst.

If you google Chinese factory workers in Italy its quite interesting

Bit of a run on quinine apparently, so it’s time to break out the G+T’s like the old sahibs.

I think this damn thing has been around in the UK since December.

I've been told unofficially November by someone who knows someone from lab testing dead people...no.idea if its true.

My stepson had all the symptoms late January- NHS Direct told me a couple of weeks ago ut sounds like the virus. The dry cough only properly finished about 3 weeks ago.

Infant Daughter caught the same, and the Mother-in-law who lives with us

Errm, now I may not be the sharpest tool in the shed but Le Mans 24 generally happens in the middle of June for a simple reason - it's one of the longest days of the year, so minimum night-time running for the convenience of both teams and spectators. That September date is heading out towards the equinoxe. (Perhaps Jean Michelle Jarre will be playing the concert...)

In September there's going to be 50% more night running than in June. About an additional 4 hours, increasing night running from 8 hours to 12 hours.

Spot on. In June there's still light past 10pm. Ideal as it makes a very long evening, so we'll loose 2 hours off that.

The Daytona 24 in February must be even worse, but is it fully lit?

Anyway, the chances of it happening in September must be slim. Even if we "beat the bug" by June, there may still be travel restrictions to stop it blowing up again, but anything can happen.

In 1968 a battery change during the race was allowed to allow for extra headlight use

The bike 24 hr is in April normally, so they get a lot of darkness - I think from around 7 - 8pm. That said most of the fans are mostly getting trashed in the campsites so probably don't care!!

I keep checking in with the pharmaceuticals company I'm working for at the moment (contract) - the general consensus at the moment is normal life resumes in June / July locally, the issue being who allows in people from outside their own borders. The endurance races are a bit of a problem because they are both so international. One would expect that any country with live cases will be on an immigration ban - who knows?

Must admit I'm putting far more planning into next year than this year...I'm definitely going to make it one to remember!

True, but not unprecedented though. The first race was held in May and the 1968 race was also held in Sept.

It's also held on the Bugatti circuit rather than the full Sarthe circuit though and I think the Bugatti is fully floodlit, unlike the public road sections of the Sarthe?
