IMSA has announced that the upcoming two events on the 2020 calendar, at Long Beach and Mid-Ohio respectively, will not be taking place as scheduled.
The Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach, which was scheduled to be held on April 17-19 has been cancelled after the series was unable to find a way to hold the race after it had previously been postponed.
“The International Motor Sports Association (IMSA) has received notification from the organizers of the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach that this year’s event, which was scheduled from April 17-19, has now been cancelled for 2020,” IMSA wrote in a statement.
“IMSA and the event promoter exhausted every option to conduct this race, but many factors made it impossible including our scheduled races in the second half of the year. We all look forward to returning to the iconic street circuit in April of 2021.”
The series also confirmed that the Acura Sports Car Challenge at Mid-Ohio, which was scheduled for May 1-3, will not take place on the scheduled date following an announcement by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) regarding limiting public gatherings to no more than 50 people through May 15.
IMSA says it is holding discussions to reschedule the race ‘at a later date in 2020’.
