Originally planned to take place between July 23-26, the event is now being targeted to be ran later in the autumn by the organisers, SRO Belgium, as the GT World Challenge Europe championship tries to reschedule its Sprint and Endurance calendars.

The series has already like with sport around the world been hit badly by the coronavirus pandemic, with the scheduled season opener at Monza this weekend already cancelled last month due to the lockdown in the country.

Both the Endurance and Sprint rounds at Silverstone and Brands Hatch respectively have also been postponed due to the ban on motorsport events in the United Kingdom until the end of June at the earliest.
