Classic Car Comment  It‘s August 2020 and guess what, the dreaded coronavirus is still with us, keeping historic motorsport at no more than tick-over speed. MSV circuits are allowing a limited number of spectators, there are a few drive-through fun days, and Goodwood is hoping to organise a combined event, held behind closed doors. Well, it always has been exclusive. That‘s about it. I‘m booked to cover Spa Six Hours in mid-September but, frankly, I‘m not holding my breath. It‘s getting very tiresome.
