I have just looked at the whilton mill website and at the moment they are still open for practice on Thursday. The bistro is closed and they are asking for people to pit at a social distance type of thing. I am in two minds whether or not it would be a good idea to go or not.

Hi Jim. I personally have decided not to attend due to having vulnerable family members. Sorry, I would have liked to support the effort you have put into organising this event, but these are very unusual times.
If others can similarly advise their intentions on this thread it will help Jim make a decision.

I was still intending to come, but following yesterdays announcement I would not be surprised if they have to close?

Thanks Graham and Chris, very unusual times indeed. Staying safe seems to be the phrase this year. Whilton is very easy to book again when this catastrophe is over so don't anybody feel guilty if they don't feel up for it.

OK, just checked and so far at least, it is only indoor leisure centres that are included in the ban.

So, as things stand today, if it's going ahead, I'll be there.

Hi Jim  As I am in the very vulnerable category I sadly won't be able to attend Whilton Mill. I was looking forward to seeing the venue. If it's on please take some pics and post them. Hope your new CK goes well and you all have a great day.   I was hoping to have my CK there, like yours it would have been it's Maiden Voyage.  Graham A.

Sorry, but I cannot believe that our group thinks it's OK to go ahead with this. I could say more, but won't.

24 hours is a long time these days and I have come to the decision that it would not be a good idea to come. So I hope we get another opportunity later in the year.

Sorry folks I won’t be attending. This is the time to stay at home and build things not get together in groups. It’s only six weeks since Alex & I had transplant surgery so I can’t take any risks

Thanks for the replies everyone, it makes sense to cancel this and I will contact the track tomorrow. Hopefully we'll be able to get out in our karts in the near future. Blooming typical, I got mine running today and bench tested the drive train.

Woo hoo hooray. Whilton is opening again on the first of June. I will give them a call and book a practice day in the not too distant future.
