We are living in strange times. With the news headlines currently dominated by the seemingly relentless march of a previously unknown flu-like virus, there is now justifiable concern about how the attempts to shut it down will affect events throughout the year.

“I KNOW WHERE I PLAN TO BE AT THE END OF MARCH, AND THAT’S AT GOODWOOD…”
This morning I received an e-mail from the ACO (Auto Club de l’Ouest), organisers of the famous Le Mans 24 Hours, saying that they are monitoring the situation and that there is a possibility the event may be postponed until later in the year.

I guess we’ll just have to watch this space and hope that the outbreak of coronavirus is contained sooner rather than later.
However, I know where I plan to be at the end of March, and that’s at Goodwood’s Members’ Meeting (above), followed in May by Classics at the Castle. It’ll take an act of parliament to stop me going to those. Hopefully I’ll see you there, fit and well…
