With all the optimism in the air surrounding the prospects for the 2021 racing season, for some the nightmare is already beginning. The Peter Auto Dix Mille Tours meeting, which was to take place at Paul Ricard on 26-28 March has now had to be postponed until later in the year. This has been a big blow, not just to Peter Auto, but to other organisers who have races scheduled in the early part of the year and who are also considering their options. This affects mostly the organisers of big events that rely on the paying public for their revenue, and to those, like Peter Auto, who attract international teams, many of whom are living under travel restrictions. It also affects the whole ambiance for organiswrs like Peter, who make hospitality and conviviality an integral part of the offer to competitors.
