The Grand Prix of Monterey at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca has been cancelled and new events will be added at World Wide Technology Raceway at Gateway and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Road Course, as coronavirus cases continue to rise in California.

The Monterey GP joins the Grand Prix of Portland at Portland International Raceway, which was also cancelled due to gathering restrictions and increasing active coronavirus cases.

As rumored last week, teams were preparing to race without the three west coast events, and their contingency plan was swiftly put into place to keep the schedule at 14 races. 

The Bommarito Automotive Group race weekend at Gateway and the Harvest Grand Prix at IMS will now both be doubleheaders, with races on 29-30 August and 2-3 October respectively. 

As reported earlier, the Portland GP race has been replaced with a second race at IndyCar’s next venue, Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. 

 Penske Entertainment Corporation President & CEO Mark Miles promises more exciting doubleheader weekends for the fans at these additional races.

“Our race fans have loved the exciting doubleheader action of the NTT IndyCar Series this year at Road America and Iowa Speedway,” Miles said to Indycar.com.

“We look forward to giving them even more world-class entertainment this season at three of the most exciting racetracks on the NTT IndyCar Series calendar.”
