Professional racing series continue to revise their schedules as the coronavirus outbreak keeps tracks closed.

IMSA has announced the following:

  • The Mid-Ohio race originally scheduled for May 1–3 will now be run on September 25–27.
  • The WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca event has been moved up one weekend from September 11–13 to September 4–6. This change was made to accommodate IMSA racers who plan to compete in the 24 Hours of Le Mans, which will now run on September 19–20.
  • The Petit Le Mans race at Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta has been moved back one week from October 7–10 to October 14–17, “to provide teams a more balanced schedule as the season comes to its conclusion.”

IMSA had already announced that its season would end with the rescheduled Twelve Hours of Sebring, which will run on November 11–14.

DTM has announced the cancellation of its April race at Zolder and other early-season races at Lausitzring, Igora Drive in Russia, Anderstorp in Sweden, and Monza in Italy. These events are being rescheduled. At present, the season is slated to begin at the Norisring on July 10–12 and end in Monza on November 13–15. The revised schedule appears here.

The SRO Americas schedule has not changed. The next race on the schedule is the Touring Car Festival at Lime Rock on May 8–9. Lime Rock’s website indicates that the track is closed through April 30.
