So if it's going to be an issue with foreign riders coming over why not go with full british sides whether it's 5 or 7 man teams & run a 13 heat meeting then run a full 8 heat 2nd half for those riders who are looking for team spots .. & see what happens & it will also give riders more track time which is much needed in this country

We already know we can run meetings with 6 riders per team when RR is employed.

Talks suggest F1 first meeting in Aussie in March will be cancelled Due to Covid. That will be the second year running.

Maybe just me, but REALLY, what difference will  putting the meeting back a WEEK make.They used to be indecisive,now they are not so sure.!!

It is pretty obvious that they spent December working on plans for 2021 with an Easter (or thereabouts) start, and now they need more time to rework those plans.

But in the uk over 1000 died of COVID-19 on Tuesday, uk, a place with social distancing rules. So are you saying COVID spreads when social distancing, and doesn’t when you mix. It was predicted in their the figures would jump up over the Xmas period on the uk, and they have.

The opening round of F1 is in Aussie 3rd week in March, Melbourne, and they considering cancelling it. Perhaps Hamilton and co should take up tennis.

Social distance at 2 meters well I don't think it works !! As I've heard of a number of people people some freinds & some on radio stations who have never been out the house but have still caught it so it's definitely AIR born & if your unlucky enough to catch it lets hope it's not the bad strain ? Let's hope everyone is safe & the speedway season starts in may as if it is to be June or July it could be another write off for the 2nd year in a row fir some riders & clubs & alsi the FANS

Justgotmecpc, but COVID isn’t just spread by airborne, there is touch problems as well. So if someone stays locked down at home, COVID could come into the home via deliveries of food or other things. That’s why after one of us has been shopping, or receiving mail through the post etc we wash hands.
