The opening round of the 2020 Sparco Rotax Pro Tour will not take place this weekend.
Karting Australia released the following statement, citing a reluctance from competitors to travel interstate in the current COVID-19 climate.
Karting Australia, International Karting Distributors and the Go-Kart Club of Victoria advises that the opening round of the 2020 Rotax Pro Tour, scheduled for this weekend (March 21/22), has been postponed.
The postponement comes following feedback from Competitors and Team Members advising of their reluctance to travel interstate in the current climate of uncertainty that Australians currently face surrounding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis.
It remains the intention to ensure that the 2020 Rotax Pro Tour is contested across four rounds. At this stage will proceed as scheduled and an additional date, likely to be in the latter part of the year, will be advised in due course.
All competitors who have entered the event will be provided a refund for their round entry fee to the same credit card on which the original payment was made.
