For what it's worth, 2.30pm start time for the September race.

Still don't think I'd put a lot of money on it running. But fingers crossed!

Sorry to hear that. All the best to you and all that knew him. I hope you get to a chance to say goodbye in an appropriate way.

That's terrible news, my condolences. I read your blog post as well but will revisit in his memory. It's been a very tough time for you and your family. If there is anything I can do to help from where I am, please let me know.

It seems most of the Le Mans classic competitors are content, after all historics can be raced anytime and it’s very sensible of the organisers that they can transfer their entry to next year. No complaints there

However as you say local businesses that use the various races to make profit may be left out in the cold

Yes Simon,

I had read in some local newspaper that only the 24h business is equal to the business of a factory that would employ 850 people all along a year.

That's a very graphic way of explaining the predicament. The race having the same economic impact as a company employing 850 people year round.
Depends on what that hypothetical company produces, mind. Some companies that size are barely profitable.

Christopher I missed some details. You are right. I found an old 2012 newspaper article from "La tribune" that was explaining the 24 hours windfall on La Sarthr was about 60 millions €.
Very important for the local economy.

As I pointed out last night.
Look two posts up, Simon 😉
I hope anyone who watched enjoyed it. I thought the delivery of the commentary was dire and some of the subtitles contained errors, but the race itself shone through.

Wow!
Thanks for that Eric.
We are all going back to a different world when this emergency is over - those of us who are still alive.
Economies will be in recession all over the world after very few of us have produced much over a number of months

This was posted on another forum, but i suspect you will love it.

Actually seen the featured car in historic racing and at the classic one year but the best bit for me is the scenes around the circuit. Pretty sure some of those things were still there on my first trip in 85
