So is that Spa officially stcanned ?

Gutted. Had a big weekend planned for it.

Shame as well, as there was likely to be a convoy of idiots all wearing fancy new jackets and caps , hammering sausages into Belgian lawns all weekend.
I am waiting to find out and will let you know when I do mate.

Presumably they still have to confirm if spectators are even permitted for these rescheduled rounds?

It'll be TV only, no way will they allow the big crowds that follow BTCC, GTs etc.

I was hoping to attend the first round at Oulton if it’s open to the public!? Listening to the GT cars race back up the hill is one of the best things for your ears 😁

Can't help thinking that the earlier rounds will be "closed" events.. more hope for September onwards but that also depends on when the second virus wave hits.

Morning mate

Me too, we will have to wait until next year now.

This has reminded me, I need to get a few hundred jackets and caps sorted!

The original requests are now burried all over the place between here, Nik and my email, so I will post here and on the IM thread with a new IM emails address for everyone so we can get it all in one place and have them sent out!

Gutted. Was so looking forward to it as well.

Next year hopefully. Belgium is a cracking place if you go to the right parts smile

If you like I can text you my details or will give them to Nik as I'm hopefully seeing him soon. (reminds oneself to reply to Nik's voicemail !! )

Same. Though reminding myself I am only missing out on something that was graciously given for free takes the edge off hehe. Only thing I'd paid for was the air BnB and got a full refund so nothing lost smile

Yes exactly, it was a very generous offer in the first place. I think Julian's got more to be upset about sponsoring an event that's not fully going ahead!

There is always next year for Spa and I am sure we can come up with something else fun for this year when the lockdown is lifted! smile
