Around Europe ASNs are doing their best to renew competition and officials’ licences under favourable conditions, as many of them went unused last year due to cancellations and travel restrictions. In France, for example competition race licence holders that didn’t race last year will have their licences automatically renewed for this year without charge, while in other countries discounts and other concessions are available. In recognition of the fact that many people are still restricted from travelling, the FIA has also relaxed the rule that says international licence holders must get their medical from a doctor licenced in the issuing country. This means that if you are stuck somewhere and unable to travel, you can get your medical locally and it will be recognised by your home ASN.
