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

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