    Next track days at Spa-Francorchamps is March 23/24. Who is coming this year? I can probably arrange a Caterham even at this late stage.

    Sadly I was too optimistic. Spa-Francorchamps closed itself until late-April in response to Coronavirus. Looks like I am out of luck for driving at Spa until next year now.

    While disappointing, I do recognize that these measures are needed to prevent the spread of the epidemic. Hope everyone else is staying positive in these trying times.

    Agreed. Just as well that we aren’t scheduled for NJMP until this fall!
    At my current rate of progress I may get my seat installed just in time.

    Hey Croc: Has this virus put a crimp in your peripatetic lifestyle?

    And, as a 73 year old who is squarely in the cross hairs of the Corona virus, I am practicing a self-imposed "social distancing" (Not leaving the house unless it's on fire), and experimenting with homemade hand sanitizer formulas). This will get old fast.

    My wife is returning home from Denmark tomorrow. She is at high risk because of age (72) and recent cancer. She will have the mandated two week self-quarantine and after that I will have to work on getting her to put a restraint on her social activities.

    Looks like I will have to learn to grocery shop. Hope we have enough toilet paper!

    LOL has it ever. I got tested in London last week just before I flew back to US. Cancelled Spa travel bookings yesterday (mentally I cancelled on Tuesday). A bunch of mercy flights yesterday to bring everyone home so they are not trapped for 3 months. Offices closed globally to encourage people to work remotely - we said 2 weeks but really its 3 months being honest once you really think about the logic of what is happening. Figuring London is off limits next month? Bermuda is shut so need to cancel that trip. Was supposed to take my mother on a cruise in June - Rome to Barcelona via Israel. Somehow I suspect thats toast. I think I will get Peru to work in July (he hopes). At least the business is fine. Midtown manhattan was a ghost town on Friday at 2pm.

    Biggest concern for me is reducing panic. People need to remember this is a virus and not the zombie apocalypse.

    Top epidemic tip: Buy your toilet paper on amazon!

    Mike - We were in Peru 4 weeks ago. Great dinner (and Pisco Sours) at Maido. And Chicharron sandwiches (pork and sweet potato) at La Lucha Sangucheria. And ceviche pretty much anywhere.

    Staying in Lima, or plans to get around a bit? Machu Picchu? Nazca lines?
