Topic: OMG the Coronavirus (and not the Toyota)

Has anyone seen or heard any talk of postponing or rescheduling races due to getting down with the sickness ?

If you were signed up for a race, you would have gotten Jay's email.  Let Sanity prevail and wait and see is the current line of thinking.

Its too bad, we got our best result at Autobahn, and was hoping to improve this year.

No worries, we are going to take another swing at Gingerman and BIR.

Yup. I think Pitt may be at risk depending on how things go in the next couple of weeks, but once we get deeper in the spring/early summer things will get back to normal. Most of these diseases don't like the warm weather so, in theory, it should peter out once the warm weather starts to kick in.

I am so f*cked off, I had the time, money and backing to come over and do Lemons in 2020 but Europe is in lockdown and things are so bad I've had to change my holiday to visit Scotland. How the mighty have fallen... sad

Stay safe, chaps

I was really disappointed when F1 racing was suspended but I'm glad they resumed.

Me too, I was really upset. F1 racing is one of the greatest events every year for me
