The 2020 European Le Mans Series season is the latest series to respond to the ever spreading Coronavirus. The official testing has been cancelled whilst the opening 2 rounds will be rescheduled.

The upcoming ELMS season was due to hold it’s official testing on 30/31 March as well as the first race one week later. Monza was set to be the host for round 2 of the series on May 10th but as of now the series organisers have taken the decision to postpone the series. Official dates for rescheduled Barcelona and Monza races will be coming in the near future whilst the series still evaluate the situation in the coming weeks.

European Le Mans Series CEO, Gérard Neveu said, “This decision was not made lightly but is the appropriate and responsible decision. We had no other choice than to postpone our events. The welfare of our teams, members of the paddock and race fans has to remain our priority. We are working on a revised calendar and will communicate that in the next few days.”

Potentially this will see the first official round of the 2020 season being the 4 hours of Le Castellet in July, although many of the European Le Mans teams will be contesting the 2020 Le Mans 24 hours in June which is still set to happen on the 13/14 June.
