In case you’ve not been keeping up with the rolling news coverage, things have stopped. Pick a show, sporting match or community event you want to go to and chances are, it’s cancelled. Even something as genteel and equanimous as a handshake is off the table now. What are we to do, wave?
Another symptom of this particular disease is the conspicuous absence of motorsport. Is it entirely understandable? Of course – it’d be a hard sell, even by our logic-stretching standards. But it still sucks to miss out on yet another thing we used to enjoy. By our estimation, if things keep going the way they have, 2020 will be the slowest year in motorsport since the Second World War.
So, just like back then, it’s clear we’re going to have to pull up our bootstraps (in this case, Alpinestars, but the point remains) and fight back. With some home-grown, grass-roots, quarantine-friendly motorsport! For maximum safety, don’t shake hands after the race. A set of Noel Gallagher-approved forks will probably work wonders.*
*It almost definitely won’t.
