WEC: 6 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps postponed due to COVID-19

Round 7 of the FIA World Endurance Championship has been postponed as the safety and welfare of the spectators are prioritised in light of the coronavirus pandemic.

The promoters of the event, Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps and the RACB are working together to find a new 2020 date and will be will be “communicated” across when that decision has been made.

Gerard Neveu, CEO of the WEC said: “This decision was the only responsible option to be taken at this time.”

“The health and well-being of our competitors, fans and members of the paddock has to remain our priority.”

“We are working on a revised date for the TOTAL 6 Hours of Spa and will communicate that as soon as possible.”

The official statement finishes by saying: “All tickets already purchased for the TOTAL 6 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps will remain valid for the new, later date.”

“People who are unavailable to attend at that time can contact the official ticket seller (Ticketmaster) to be reimbursed.”

With the 1000 Miles of Sebring and now the 6 Hours of Spa suspended, the 24 Hours of Le Mans event in June may be next in-line for delay.
