The New Zealand round of the 2020 Supercars Championship will not go ahead as planned on April 24-26 following an announcement from Supercars’ CEO Sean Seamer this morning.
“Today, on behalf of the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship, I want to provide an update on our plan for managing the 2020 Championship during the months ahead,” Said Seamer in a statement.
“We have been working diligently to assess all available options to ensure continuity of the Series.
“Obviously, the situation is evolving, but we acknowledge the need to act decisively with the information we have at hand.
“Our sport is a visceral experience and rather than run without crowds, we have decided, along with our key broadcast and government partners, to delay any further racing until June.
“Tasmania, Auckland and Perth events will all be postponed until later in the year, not cancelled. Fortunately, our calendar this year enables us to do this.”
“We wish our fans, partners and people all the best through these challenging times.”
MotorSport New Zealand will be working with the New Zealand based classes scheduled to be racing at the event.
