WEC shows provisional calendar and postpones next season and regulations

All racing classes have their hands in their hair about how they are going to shape the rest of the 2020 season. Not least the WEC, which is already in the middle of their season. On Friday they published a provisional adjusted schedule in which it becomes clear that finishing the current season has priority.

The 6 hours of Spa, which was originally planned to be held in April, has therefore been postponed to 15 August. The 24 hours of Le Mans will be held in the weekend of 19 and 20 September, while the 12 hours of Sebring will be completely cancelled and will be replaced by an 8 hour race in Bahrain on 21 November.

As a result, the current season will retain as many races as originally planned, but the start of next season will be postponed to 2021, so that that season will be held within the traditional calendar year. However, the introduction of the Hypercar class will also be postponed to 2022.

“The evolution of this global health crisis has left us with little choice. It is today impossible to consider organizing an international motorsport event before the summer, so we have rearranged the calendar accordingly while keeping the same number of events on the schedule", says Gerard Neveu, CEO of the WEC, in a statement.
