The latest major event to be postponed in light of the continuing measures to deal with the COVID-19 virus outbreak is the TOTAL 6 Hours of Spa Francorchamps.
A statement issued this morning by the FA WEC reads as follows:
In view of the continued global spread of COVID-19, and after discussions with the championship promoter, its local partners and the RACB, the decision has been taken to postpone the 7th round of the FIA World Endurance Championship’s 2019-2020 season due to take place 23-25th April in Spa, Belgium.
The promoter, Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps and the RACB are working together to find a new 2020 date and, as soon as this is finalised, it will be communicated.
Gérard Neveu, CEO of the WEC said: “This decision was the only responsible option to be taken at this time. The health and well-being of our competitors, fans and members of the paddock has to remain our priority. We are working on a revised date for the TOTAL 6 Hours of Spa and will communicate that as soon as possible.”
“All tickets already purchased for the TOTAL 6 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps will remain valid for the new, later date. People who are unavailable to attend at that time can contact the official ticket seller (Ticketmaster) to be reimbursed.
