Words of note from this weekend and last

Monday, August 02, 2021

Just a few words of note from last weekend’s event and what should have been happening elsewhere this weekend coming.

The Britcar Endurance Championship were at Brands Hatch last weekend for the latest races for their Endurance and Praga Cup class. That meeting on Saturday was of course abandoned after the serious accident that occurred during a support race - an incident that cost the life of a race marshal at a post on the outside of the circuit going into Paddock Hill Bend.

Recently named by colleagues as Robert Foote, racing driver Alice Powell has kindly set up a “Just Giving’ page to help those left behind after this terrible accident. A link to that account can be found here:-


Also, another event that should be taking place this weekend has already been postponed allowing the circuit to carry on with its humanitarian efforts in southern Germany after the recent catastrophic floods in the region a couple of weeks ago that saw an ever-increasing loss of life.

Those efforts mean that the scheduled ADAC GT4 Germany round from the Nurburgring this weekend will be delayed until a future date to be confirmed. Donations towards these efforts can be made via the links that @frozenspeed (local motorsport photographer) has posted on his Twitter account as well as other fund raising opportunities.
