What will happen to the major car racing events of 2020?

Silverstone is set to host two grand behind closed doors in August. This is a part of the condensed Formula 1 season calendar in 2020. The British Travel Car Championship is geared towards organizing a schedule. It includes 27 races to start at Donington Park on August 2.

The season finals will take place at the Blooming Brand on November 15. The GT Championship is also looking forward to starting on August 2 with an event at Oulton Park. The Goodwood Festival of Speed, Wales Rally GB (UK World Cup race), and the historic Silverstone Classic and Goodwood Revival race meetings are among the canceled events.

Formula E leads the way in electric vehicle fees

Both McLaren and Williams have been partners in the most important motorsport development of the past decade. The UK-based Formula E has led the way in electrification.

Already in its sixth season, the one-seat car series is already ahead of the evolution of technology that all major carmakers are now pledging. And again, the white heat of competition has accelerated the pace.

The third generation of the upcoming Formula E car, introduced in 2022, will represent a significant change in performance. From 268bhp of the ‘Gen 1, racer, initially, 460bhp is now in range, while the weight has always dropped from over 900kg to just 780kg, as the battery has reduced in size and increased capacity.

Formula E also pioneered fast charging, including 30-second pit-up stops. All this in just six years. It is no surprise that Mercedes and Porsche have joined Audi, BMW, DS, Jaguar, Mahindra, Nio, and Nissan in a formidable F1 lineup.

How the racing club will return

Racing finally started again on July 4, with 12 events taking place over the weekend, starting with an English Motor Racing Club event at Castle Combe. Motorsport UK will limit the number of event licenses to 50% of 2019.

All event organizers will be required to meet new security protocols. They will come with social dispersion measures, providing issue PPE when needed. Also, most of the paper work before the event is done online.
