Classic Car Comment  You don‘t need to be Einstein to work out, it‘s going to take more than just a few more weeks before historic motorsport returns to normal. My guess is, at least twelve months. Which means, no Monaco, Le Mans Classic, Silverstone Classic, Zandvoort, Goodwood Revival or Spa Six Hours, to mention just a few. Serious. It certainly is.

Editor-in-Chief

Classic Motorsport Retro-Fact  The Suez crisis meant that, as from 17 December 1956 until further notice, the average family faced motoring lockdown, with fuel not only rationed to 200 miles a month, but almost unobtainable anyway. Journalists were allocated a further 100 miles, while doctors, midwives, disabled drivers and vets, were free of all restrictions. Rationing was lifted on 14 May 1957.
