Classic Car Comment There are still a lot of questions but, all things being equal, the world of historic motorsport, at least in the UK, has the green light to commence racing from 4 July 2020. Organisers will be fighting over dates, though I‘d say club level racing behind closed doors is good to go. Those events reliant on volume spectator numbers, such as Goodwood Revival, must be on a very precarious short list.
