Classic Car Comment  Run under government COVID-19 guidelines, meaning prolific use of face masks, and no spectators, there was a spooky atmosphere at the VSCC meeting at Shelsley Walsh on Saturday (8 August). And with media representatives also limited, any social downtime was also non-existent. Altogether very different and a lot more serious than 12 months ago.
