Organisers of the Chevrolet Belle Isle Grand Prix double header that is due to play host to the rescheduled 2020 NTT IndyCar Series season opener as a result of the global COVID 19 pandemic are still confident and planning for the race to go ahead but are aware that they may need to reschedule the event for later in the year.
The NTT IndyCar Series and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway announced last week that the 104th running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge will now take place on August 23 having previously been set to go ahead on May 24.
President Donald Trump has extended the country’s social distancing and stay at home order until April 30 which had called into question the Belle Isle Grand Prix given the amount of time it takes to construct the circuit.
Race organizers have admitted however that they may need to reschedule the race until later in the season given the constantly changing situation with regards COVID 19.
As it stands the 2020 NTT IndyCar Series season will get underway from May 29 to 31 with the Chevrolet Belle Isle Grand Prix presented by Lear.
