St. Pete to race without spectators

The NTT IndyCar Series has announced that the opening race of the 2020 season will run as planned this weekend in St. Petersburg, Florida.

But there won’t be any spectators at the race, and with only a very limited number of photographers and journalists.

That is done after coordinating with the local health authorities, due to the worldwide COVID-19 virus.

Several states in the USA has already forbidden big gatherings, and that ruling has now come to St. Petersburg as well.

NASCAR announced earlier today, that they would do exactly the same for their races at Atlanta Motor Speedway and Homestead-Miami this coming week and next weekend, while IMSA and the FIA WEC cancelled their joint race weekend at Sebring International Raceway, Florida.
