emerging one step at a time

Another week, and we are another step closer to bring the picture into focus about how motorsport will emerge from the current global coronavirus pandemic. Firstly, all credit must go to the national governing body, Motorsport UK. These have been unprecedented times in the world, let alone in the sporting sphere. With the easing of restrictions, there has to be a clear and safe path through the government advice to enable sport to continue. But it is not going to be a smooth road and look at the trouble the Premier League has gone through to allow it to complete its season – and that is a sport which essentially only requires 22 players and three officials to make happen. There will still be hurdles for motorsport to overcome, and there may…

talks continue to save british grand prix double-header

New 14-day quarantine rules for overseas travellers which have been put in place by the UK government have thrown the British Grand Prix back-to-back events into doubt. The meetings were originally scheduled to take place on July 26 and again onAugust 2 – or even a week earlier on July 19 and July 26 – but senior officials are now in locked talks to see if the showpiece races can be saved. The home secretary Priti Patel said on Friday last week that anyone travelling to the United Kingdom would have to undergo a 14-day quarantine to be allowed to move freely in the country. The government is working on introducing special ‘air bridges’, where people arriving from some countries would be exempt, but these are not expected to be put in…

f1 cost cap ramps up for post-virus

Formula 1 teams have agreed to lower the proposed the forthcoming budget cap for 2021 by $30 million to $145 million to help squads ride out the financial pressures in the wake of the coronavirus. As well as the financial limits, other tweaks will include a measure which is designed to help some of the lesser teams have more access to development to assist them in reducing the gap to the frontrunners. The teams had already agreed a $175 million cap for 2021, but this has come down further in the light of the global health crisis. This will then be lower to $140 million in 2022 and $135 for the 2023-2025 seasons. New development rules mean that top teams will have restricted time in the windtunnel depending upon their finishing position in…

richmond race dropped from indycar schedule

The returning Richmond Raceway round has become the latest to be removed from IndyCar’s revised 2020 calendar due to local coronavirus pandemic restrictions. The 0.75-mile oval was due to stage the third round of this year’s amended IndyCar schedule on June 27, the venue returning to the calendar for the first time since 2009. But the state of Virginia is not permitting gatherings until at least July. Toronto’s race has also been cancelled following, as reported in last week’s Motorsport News, the city mayor’s recent announcement that it is withholding permits for major events and festivals in July and August. There are now 14 rounds on the 2020 IndyCar schedule as the Road America visit has become the calendar’s third double-header, and it has been moved from June 21 into Toronto’s former slot of…

wtcr set for europeanonly campaign in 2020

The 2020 World Touring Car Cup race season is set to start in September, kicking off what is expected to be a truncated Europe-only schedule. Arevised WTCR calendar was expected to be confirmed this week after Motorsport News went to press. It has been reported that the schedule will be made up of six weekends, all at European circuits. Two of the events are to remain as double-headers as was planned for 2020, while the other four will run to the WTCR’s former triple-header format. This makes 16 races in total, down on the originally-planned 20. AEurope-only calendar would mean the cancellation of fourAsian races at Ningbo in China, Inje in South Korea, Macau and Sepang in Malaysia. Francois Ribeiro, boss of WTCR promoter Eurosport Events, toldAutosport: “It is very possible that we…

us grand prix faces a battle to be staged

Acloud exists over the likelihood of theAmerican Grand Prix in Texas, which is due to take place in late October, as the US is slowly reducing its lockdown measures. The race relies on funding from tourism bodies, which would face a large drop in return should attendance at the event be restricted. Dr Mark Escott, the interim medical director and the health authority forAustin Public Health, cast doubt over the grand prix, saying that large gatherings were unlikely. He told theAustin-Statesman newspaper: “The large events are the first thing that we turned off and are going to be the last thing we’re going to turn back on because of that risk of exposing lots of people to one another, particularly individuals of the same household. “We are working on a plan to help forecast…
