COVID-19: Updated Apr 3 – The Status of the race cancellations, etc.


Oakville, ON, (GRW): I continue to update the changes in schedule.
NOTE: This situation is, no doubt, still fluid and we may hear more news of schedule disruptions as time goes on. Do not take my notes as the final word and always check directly with the responsible authorities before you make decisions about attending or not attending any race events.
Also, never lose sight of the fact that in the end you make your own decisions about plans for attending race events even if they have not been officially cancelled.
March 18: With the postponment of the Le Mans 24-Hours, we are now seeing races originally scheduled for June, being put off to a later date. This disrupton may go on much longer that we currently expect?
March 19: Now that the Monaco GP has been 'postponed' it seems inevitable that the Indy 500 and the Coca-Cola 600 will not run on that late May weekend either. With so many race dates now having the status of 'postponed' it is hard to imagine how any race organization will be able to fit all of those postponed races in the time that will be available in the 2020 season when things get back to normal.
March 23: Add the Baku F1 race to the list of ‘postponed’ events.
March 24: IMSA sets dates for the postponed events; Petit Le Mans moved a week later

March 25: Canadian GP will annouince their decision re status of the June event on May 1.
