Can I ask exactly where the details of the British Championship being held at Ipswich are? 

I have looked on the speedwaygb site and also on the Ipswich website and neither make any mention of it and while other places can do good advertising I would have thought that the two I mention should be among the first places for such news to appear.

Social distancing will still be needed so isnt this the best option....

Yes, I thought it would be at BV for this very reason. Easier to police social distancing when it's an all seater stadium. Which I am assuming BV is? At Ipswich most people stand up in groups, like in Sweden? Only going by camera angles on TV meetings!!

What about the massive 3500 seater grandstand on back straight? ;)

Plus the extra 1000 if they can get the 3rd bend seating opened up.......

Also easy to mark the concrete terracing if required  - no messy grass banking at Foxhall anymore

But people don't stand in the same exact spot usually. Maybe they are going to have some spots marked out like supermarkets had when you had to queue outside during lockdown. Unless they are only opening up the grandstand and that's it? :unsure:

Well as the normal max capacity is 10-12,000 I'm sure there is no problem whatever they choose to do :)

They have held a few stock car events at Foxhall recently so the social distancing stuff should be in place already. Looking forward to it, just hope I'm able to get tickets!
