In the round-up: More series have announced delays to the start of the seasons, mostly down to disruption caused by the pandemic.

Covid-19 causes more calendar disruption

The World Endurance Championship’s planned season-opener at Sebring on March 19th has been called off. The series will now begin with a new race at the Autodromo do Algarve on April 4th.

The World Touring Car Championship has also delayed the start of its season. Races at the Hungaroring and Slovakiaring in May have been pushed back, meaning the series’ visit to the Nurburgring Nordschleife on on June 3rd-5th will now open its season.

IndyCar, which already postponed its original season-opener at St Petersburg, has now delayed the race which took over as the first race. However the Barber Motorsport Park has been pushed back to a week in order to give the championship the benefit of a more preferable television slot.
