The NTT IndyCar Series has chosen to postpone the start of the 2020 season.
Despite a press release issued Thursday afternoon local time, the series has given a second thought Friday morning, and has cancelled this weekend’s race in St. Petersburg. The next round at Long Beach was already cancelled by the city itself yesterday, and now the series have chosen to also cancel Round three at Circuit Of The Americas.
That leave no races left on the calendar for the whole of March and April, so the earliest race of the year will be GMR Grand Prix on the infield of Indianapolis Motor Speedway on 9 May.
The cancellation of Long Beach also influences the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, which would have shared the event with Indycar.
