Going by what I've just read on Facebook, that looks to be an even smaller maybe.

Australia.If anyone is allowed in I think it will be a limited numbers of sponsors and guests only.
Public admission in limited numbers but no camping might be a chance for the TCR meeting at Bathurst in November.For Supercars the new Grand Final at Eastern Creek the second weekend in December is a possibility.
Hang in there folks .Not being able to attend a motor race isnít life threatening so stop treating it like it is.As I walked away from Albert Park on the Friday mourning this year I had pretty much written off being able to watch any motor racing on tv this year let alone attend any.Even if itís 2021 imagine how good it will feel walking in the gates again.



I don't see it as life threatening not getting to Bathurst just disappointing after 21 consecutive years of attendance last 10m in the front row of the grandstand. Bathurst is the only event I get to physically.
Looking where we were 4 months ago and the 4 months to the event am still "hopeful" of getting there. IF there is no spikes from these protest the prospect improves somewhat, footy are looking at full crowds and so far they have achieved all their aims, if crowds at footy then crowds at SC events. IF there IS a spike well that's the end of that.
CC/Ticketek are yet to make the call and probably wont until the very last minute possible so there is still hope.
I hope if the event is cancelled for spectators Ticketek do offer what I am hearing the campers are in that the booked seats are held over until 2021, I have asked Ticketek if this can be done and they just relied they are looking into all possibilities.
There are days when I look at the numbers and thinks its possible and days when you listen to so called professionals say NO crowds until vaccine is found!!! tats over 12 months away.

Just trying to stay positive.

PM just announced venues with stadiums and ticket sales up to 40,000 capacity can have a crowd limited to ticket sales of 1/4 capacity Larger venues still nothing. Doesn't sound positive for Bathurst as it has seating but a non seated crowd is not allowed, but other SC events Maybe possible if they prove they can control the crowds to stay seated etc






Or they'll add more temporary stands & get 10,000 people in there?


I understand they spread them out ie 1 every 3 seats and every second row, not sure financially viable to erect and only seat 1/4 of capacity, and what shut the top of the mountain off??? Sounds like the real hurdle isn't the numbers but the social distance rule as until that's gone sitting shoulder to shoulder with someone for hours isn't allowed.
still 4 months to go anything can happen

I am hearing footy are trying to get crowds back very soon and maybe capping the number 20,000 in a 80,000 capacity stadium etc I wonder if SC would consider this? how would it go at Bathurst??? how would decide [ like Bathurst] who gets in?

It's called tickets.. xxx amount of tickets get sold & then it becomes soldout. No ticket, no entry!

Interestingly footy is say 1st of July they want crowds. Hopefully crowds are allowed to Supercars soon as well.



Grandstand tickets all sold out already campground same how will they handle this????

As for regular races again how will they handle ticket sales ? if they are to limit numbers?

tough call isn't it?

l really donít understand the question?? Itís done via ticket sales. I could be wrong, but l find it hard to believe any future rounds would already have ticket sales above any capacity levels which may exist. If you listen to most on here crowd numbers are massively down from a few years back, so we should have plenty of room for the remaining fans left!!!!!



Its not about capacity its about social distancing rules and crowds in grandstands especially, Bathurst has sold out its grandstands IF crowds cannot attend sporting events when this event comes around what happens??? Ticketek have said a refund will come, I would much prefer they rolled over the bookings until 2021. if at other event they go like footy in restricting numbers and allocating spaced out grandstand tickets will that be viable and who gets tickets first in first serve??? If bathurst can run with limited numbers who gets to decide who misses out????

Allan
If this is applied at Bathurst it would mean 3/4 of the grandstand ticket holders will miss out HOW will they decide who comes as the grandstands are sold out already???? is it viable to erect all those temporary grandstands for only a 1/4 of the people? and what to do about general entry and social distancing, camping, etc.
I now SC are working towards having crowds there and with still 4 months to the event I am hoping and positively thinking if numbers stay the same it could occur.

Medical people are notoriously conservative as we can see by the state MOs being so so "scared" in opening things up. IF the numbers stay low Bathurst is looking better. NZ is now looking at removing social distancing rules, if we can keep low numbers.
Its hard to listen to some calls for NO crowds at events until a vaccine is found that could 12 months away and even longer before its available and implemented, so do see NO crowds at ANY events for this long???

Its all about the numbers, if we can keep it LOW over the next 2-3 months it maybe possible Bathurst that is with spectators.



Why do you keep saying the grand stand seats at Bathurst are sold out? I've just gone online & half the seats in the main stand are unsold!!



I looked some time ago and they had the "sold out" banner applied to nearly all the stands.

even if not all sold out they have a problem if limited crowds are allowed. WHO misses out??? amyway am hearing the campers have been advised their bookings will be held over until 2021 that tells me they are preparing for NO crowds

Apologies just checked the grandstand I am in IS sold out others are not

Most times at Eastern Creek I sit on the grass between Turn 1 and Turn 2 and there's more Supercars than people within a 200 metre radius - but I agree it would be difficult to police in general.

However, with crowds allowed at the AFL and NRL from this weekend in Sydney, I'd be surprised if there isn't at least a small crowd in 3 weeks. And I never thought I'd be saying that a few weeks ago!

No spectators for SMP.
fordman Posted - 10 Jun 2020 : 10:28:27
Deputy premier is pushing for full grandstands at footy mid july??? IF IF after the protest there is NO spike it will open the gates for spectators for sure BUT a 1.5m social distance rule may stay means grandstand will be spaced and limited, not sure how open grassed areas will work/policed??? Bathurst is a all in or no one in I suspect as all grandstand tickets are already sold, and policing the SD rules on the mountain yeh right lol. Then there is camping issue.

I do hope they work something out.

While the June 2020 event is slated as a closed event from a spectator perspective, the ARDC believes the size and layout of SMSP can be utilised to accommodate some form of spectator allowance within current social distancing guidelines.

Feedback from the fans certainly indicates significant demand for live racing, and further approaches will be made to the relevant NSW Government authorities to investigate a limited Ďpark and viewí in-car spectator format or similarly distanced spectating, so fans can be involved while ensuring their safety and health.


Anyone heard more this? Allowing a small amount of spectators into SMP?
skaifeman Posted - 05 Jun 2020 : 17:27:56
Winton has just confirmed there will be no camping and spectators (at this point):
https://www.facebook.com/wintonraceway/posts/3182521385119148

And not 15mins after Winton has said that, the NRL has said that small groups of fans will be allowed into games next weekend.
So maybe something to look up to... looking better for Bathurst at least!

any news on the Winton camp grounds?



believe it will be spectator free event.

2 categories running, SC and S2



there was talk of the camp grounds being opened, but the toilets and showers being shut, meaning it would only be available for those with caravans who have those facilities on board...
