    No surprise, all 'non Elite' permits have been pulled by Motorsport UK following advice from the DCMS. So, it seems only the BTCC will run. The Neil Howard at Oulton Park has been moved back to February.
    To be honest, the future is looking pretty bleak for the sport - with no forest events likely until the spring - and even that is being optimistic.

    Is there a better sound than that of Porsche engined Flat-6 ???

    Bugger had changed my ticket for Oulton to one for Cadwell so thats those both gone then! Cant see the Christmas Stages at Croft happening either unless it suddenly gets a new sponsor in Wetherspoons..

    Absolutely gutted by the news, as I have been looking forward to the British RX at Lydden this weekend.

    Bloody annoying as the lockdown should have been stepped up six weeks ago and, if they had done that, we'd likely have no cancellations now.

    Christmas Stages at Croft which was due to take place on the 13th of December has now been "postponed" Thats an entire year for me without being anywhere near a special stage...

    Not really rally related, but another indication of rallying in the UK being the poor relation.

    North West Stages which was a late cancellation this year already called off for 2021. Such a shame being closed roads and all when you see all the similar events that have taken place in Europe in 2020.

    I'm fascinated to see if/how MSUK will play a part in reviving rally. And I don't mean sending out masks to clubs...

    It really is hard to be optimistic about the future of rallying in the UK; even with the possibility of having the WRC Champion. It really has been decimated by Covid-19.

    Other than the RAC (the Roger Albert Clark, of course), I have little faith in any of it going forward. The rudderless ship of UK rallying looks to have finally been put out of its misery and sunk by the waves of Covid...

    Another blot on Mr Richards record? We'll see.
