Cal­en­dar clashes

Motor Sport News - - Have Your Say -

With ref­er­ence to your leader ar­ti­cle on the let­ters page last week ( Mo­tor­sport News, April 13) – why is it so dif­fi­cult for cir­cuits and or­gan­is­ers to cre­ate a cal­en­dar with­out the ma­jor clashes that hap­pened last week­end?

It would ap­pear that they want to make it as dif­fi­cult not only for the com­peti­tors and teams, but also spec­ta­tors and mar­shals.

The World En­durance Cham­pi­onship, Bri­tish Tour­ing Car Cham­pi­onship, Bri­tish GT and the His­toric Sports Car Club 50th An­niver­sary meet­ing at Cas­tle Combe all on the same week­end is com­plete and ut­ter mad­ness.

For­tu­nately I will be mar­shalling at Combe, where there is al­ways a good turnout of mar­shals but I wouldn’t have wanted to be try­ing to or­gan­ise mar­shals for the Grand Prix cir­cuit at Sil­ver­stone last week­end.

And on top of that we have the Grand Prix from China, the Indycar race from Long Beach, NASCAR, World Tour­ing Car Cham­pi­onship and V8 Supercars to watch. Where am I go­ing to find the time? Af­ter al­most 50 years of read­ing

Mo­tor­sport News I still wait with an­tic­i­pa­tion for the post to ar­rive on a Wed­nes­day. Tim Hall Via email
