With the very real potential for restrictions being re-imposed on free movement to combat any coronavirus spread spikes however, many more of our olde world motor car events (plus their resident auctions) could be postponed or deleted – some, one fears, never to be resurrected.

C.A.R. surfers therefore are strongly advised to ‘Stay Alert’ and check direct with auctioneers that sales are actually going ahead even on their rescheduled dates, and in whatever on-line formats have been planned, before incurring travelling costs. Be aware, too, that IF there are ever any more printed catalogues, these, plus event tickets, may still need to be purchased in order to gain access to auction areas. RH-E
