Long Beach, CA–Probably coming as no surprise to many, the Covid-19 Wuhan virus pandemic has forced the cancellation of the annual Grand Prix of Long Beach IndyCar race and with it, HMSA’s highly anticipated Formula Atlantic historic event through the streets of Long Beach in its usual April timeframe.
However, the possibility remains for a rescheduling of the event later in the year.
From the race organizers, came this statement:
In light of today’s announcement from the City of Long Beach prohibiting all large-scale events in the City through April 30, 2020, the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach will not take place as scheduled on April 17-19. While we recognize that this is a serious inconvenience for our loyal attendees, sponsors and other clients, nevertheless, this action is consistent with our primary objective of assuring the public’s safety and well-being at our event.
We are in conversation with the City of Long Beach, various race sanctioning bodies and the Long Beach Convention Center to discuss the viability of rescheduling this event at a later time in the year. If that is not possible, then we look forward to presenting the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach on April 16-18, 2021. Further details about possible refunds or credits will be forthcoming.
