Changes to Motoring Events due to Covid-19

The Covid-19 pandemic continues to affect the possibility of motoring events taking place. The uncertainty of the ongoing lockdown situation, particularly bearing in mind the large numbers of people who attend these events, has been making planning and organisation extremely difficult and often impossible.

The 2020 Classic Car & Restoration Show, due to take place in August this year, has a particular difficulty given the current use of the site as the Midlands Nightingale Hospital. It has been necessary to postpone the event, and it will now take place between 26-28 March 2021 at the Birmingham NEC.

The Silverstone Classic 2020, another extremely popular large-scale event, is also a victim of the disease causing the organisers to now abandon their possible back-up plan and cancel it for this year. It has been decided that the event could not possibly go ahead this year in the popular family friendly manner that has previously been the case. There is no new date currently available, but this will be announced when things become clearer regarding the 2021 calendar at Silverstone. Also, Silverstone Auctions has announced that should the Classic 2020 not going ahead, the planned auction at the event will become a live on-line event.

Goodwood Motor Circuit has also not escaped, having just announced that it has been necessary to cancel the Supercar Sunday Breakfast Club which was to be on Sunday 7th June.
However, Goodwood has arranged for some of the favourite supercar bits from previous years to be available on the Goodwood Road & Racing and the Goodwood Motor Circuit Facebook pages. This will commence at 9:00am, and there will also be coverage of other Goodwood events available. Goodwood is inviting enthusiasts to take part remotely by posting their own supercar photos and videos.
