Motorsport has closed down. Automotive events across the UK have been cancelled. The MX5OC has issued a directive that “all monthly meetings, drives and local Club events should be paused until further notice.”.
Yet, track days are taking place across the country. The various venue owners and organisers including Jonathan Palmer, former NHS physician, and CEO of MSV/Palmersport says all precautions will be in place.
I appreciate that there is a significant financial impact on the tracks and the organisers if these events don’t run. Many businesses are having to face this. But does this really make sense, given the challenges that are faced by the NHS?
