The August break has been moved to March / April with the teams being able to close down for any 3 weeks in that slot.

Liberty are looking at a 17-19 race season starting in Baku in June and slotting in races anywhere they can get agreement for... A good analysis here

TBH, I wouldn't be totally surprised if most of this year's events were to be called off.

Sky Spots - coming soon to a sky box near you :-rofl2

Well that was mildly entertaining - I cant get too excited about esports but it filled half an hour. Higly amused to see the huge e-pileup before the first corner :D

Johnny Herbert did a monster first corner to move up about 16 places.. He missed out corner 1 completely :-applause

From the commentary I think "Melbourne" is next in 2 weeks

The "camera angles" missed most of it, there was a big crash 100 yards from the start, Johnnys straight lining corner 1 was only caught as a brief glimpse & apart from one or two cars pointing the wrong way much of the rest was missed completely

Canada will follow it - as they have pulled out of any Olympics to be held this summer there is no chance of it happening

Nah it ain't going to happen


My suggestion is to allow the teams to develop their cars for next year and keep the 2021 schedule as planned but take this year's cars as well so do two races per venue, most cost effective solution as well as at maximum only one extra transporter would be required per team if indeed needed at all
