A possible double British Grand Prix in late July is one step closer as the British government has announced that all sporting events in the United Kingdom can resume from 1 June.
Whether Great Britain’s Grand Prix can go ahead with it will depend on whether Formula 1 gets an exception to the quarantine measures. This means that anyone entering the country will have to be in isolation for the first fourteen days. Nonetheless, Minister of State for Culture Oliver Dowden’s words are encouraging.
“I am pleased to announce today that the government has issued guidelines that will allow the resumption of sports behind closed doors from Monday as soon as possible, but only if it is safe to do so.”
Grand Prix live on open channel
“The resumption of competition is up to each individual sport; They know their sport best, but football, tennis, horse racing, Formula 1, cricket, golf, rugby, snooker and more are all set to return to our screens.
That last sentence is important, as it may be a sign that the Grand Prix of Great Britain will finally go ahead. According to resfence.net The British government wants to do everything it can to see both races live on the open channel at Silverstone. Channel 4 currently has the rights to only one race per season.
