The 26 edition of Sport et Collections, which was to take place in early June at the Vigeant circuit, will take place in principle from 10 to 13 September, with at least 600 sports and prestige cars, indicates the president of the association Jean-Pierre Doury. We had only twenty cancellations when the date was postponed, the set will be very beautiful.
The demonstration, whose revenues are intended for the fight against cancer, had attracted more than 20,000 people last year. Even if attendance could be lower this year, the holding of the event remains subject to the green light from the authorities: We are ready but we are waiting for June 2 to restart communication, specifies Jean-Pierre Doury. We have already thrown away posters and flyers that we had printed for June. We are optimistic, we hope that there will be no second wave and that the clusters will be quickly treated.
The organizers are working on the sanitary conditions which will probably be imposed during the meeting: We reflect on the implementation of barrier gestures in queues, catering, for runway baptisms, etc. Everything must be ready. We have received a first order of 5,000 masks and we are going to buy others to distribute to the public and competitors.
Sport et Collections had raised € 325,000 for cancer research at the Poitiers University Hospital. We would like to pay special tribute this year to the caregivers, who will be invited in large numbers.
