The Acura Grand Prix Of Long Beach Association released the following statement regarding the cancellation of the 2020 event while also confirming that the race will not be rescheduled for later in the year.
President and CEO of the Grand Prix Association Jim Michaelian who organise the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach said:
Over the past few days, we have actively pursued the possibility of rescheduling the Acura Grand Prix to a later date this year with the City of Long Beach, the Convention Center, the NTT INDYCAR SERIES, IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship and our other race sanctioning bodies. “We are very disappointed that we were unable to put something together for all our loyal fans and valued clients, but trying to reassemble all the elements that have made the Long Beach event such a success does not appear feasible for 2020. As a result, our attention will now be focused on planning the 46th Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach on April 16-18, 2021.”
The Grand Prix Association went on to say:
With the Acura Grand Prix unable to be conducted, the following two options will be offered to 2020 ticket holders:
The first option allows ticket holders to receive a credit for tickets purchased which will apply to the same level of admission to the 2021 Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach event. The credit will come with a Price Protection Plan which will not only protect them against any price increase for the 2021 Acura Grand Prix but also guarantee they can purchase the same level of ticket for the 2022 event at the 2020 price.
The second option gives ticket holders a full refund (less the processing fee) by April 30, 2020.
The 2021 Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach will take place April 16-18.
