Motorsport and Covid-19 - Part 1
Covid-19 has been a devastating disease. Not often has one illness stopped the world and forced a global response. Slowly the world is trying to re-emerge, though not equally and not everywhere. Sport is preparing to get active and motorsport is looking for ways to be part of this.
So we decided to explore what has been happening and how motorsport in the era of Covid-19 might look like, at least initially.
