wec unveils condensed 2021 calendar

The World Endurance Championship has unveiled a shortened six-round provisional calendar for the 2021 season, with the winter format used in recent years ditched. The roster has two rounds fewer than the ongoing 2019-20 itinerary, and this in response to the economic difficulties associated with Covid-19. It is the shortest calendar since the WEC started in 2012. The season kicks off with the 1000 Miles of Sebring in March as well as contains a July visit to Monza, which was on the original 2020-21 calendar revealed late last year. Le Mans is on June 12-13. WEC CEO Gerard Neveu said: “We listened to our manufacturers, teams and partners and responded with a calendar featuring fewer events than in the past to allow them all time to deal with the current economic crisis. We…

pembrey criticises welsh government after 2020 racing programme ditched

Pembrey circuit has criticised the Welsh Government after the venue abandoned its remaining 2020 race programme amid the country’s ongoing Covid-19 restrictions. The Welsh circuit has not held a competitive race meeting this year and, amid a worsening Covid picture, it has cancelled its three remaining 2020 events: a BTRA truck meeting plus two motorcycle gatherings. Pembrey’s circuit director Phil Davies told Motorsport News: “There was no way that we were going to get any headway with the Welsh Government and their regulations, and with everything clamping down more locally as well, so we decided to pull everything apart from our private midweek testing. “We’ve been non-competitive for a lot longer than we should have been in my opinion. When the virus was very low in Wales he [the First Minister] should have…

devine focused on banking points as european championship resumes

Callum Devine will have a new Hyundai i20 R5 following his high-speed roll on Rally Liepaja and a new co-driver too for this week’s Rally Fafe Montelongo. The PCRS team readied a new car with Devine’s crashed i20 damaged beyond repair, while James Fulton joins the team with Devine’s regular co-driver Brian Hoy unable to travel for work reasons. After retiring from the opening two rounds of the European championship, Devine accepts he needs points rather than plaudits in Portugal. “We had a bad start to the season with some bad luck in Rome and everybody knows we had a bit of an accident in Latvia,” said Devine. “It means we’ve got zero points at the moment so we need to build on our speed throughout the weekend, that has to be the…

rallying in scotland sidelined amid three cancellations

The latest Covid-19 guidelines from the Scottish Government have halted the return of Scottish rallying, with three events already called off and potentially more to follow. The Memorial Garden Stages at Condor Airfield, Arbroath, was supposed to run last weekend (September 26) but was cancelled a week beforehand. It had initially been changed to a time trial event to get around the issues of dual occupancy of a car, but clerk of the course Tom Matthews told MN “there wasn’t really much appetite” for that from competitors. He added: “To be honest we’ve had them cancelled before but this time I was gutted because we had a really, really big entry and it was quite a competitive entry.Any one of about 15 could have won it.” MN understands that SportScotland – Scotland’s national…

Fans for Combe The Castle Combe Autumn Classic will run this weekend with a limited number of pre-booked spectators for the event that marks the Wiltshire circuit’s 70th anniversary. A full programme of racing each day includes 500cc F3, Frazer Nashes and Formula Junior on Saturday, while Sunday is capped by three races from the Historic Racing Drivers’ Club.
