SRO America has confirmed that a second event at Circuit of The Americas will replace the recently-canceled round at Watkins Glen International.

The Sept. 17-20 event, which is due to serve as the penultimate round of the season, will now take place at the home of the U.S. Formula 1 Grand Prix.

GT World Challenge America powered by AWS, Pirelli GT4 America, TC America, and GT Sports Club America will all be on the weekend bill after kicking off the 2020 season at COTA in March.

“We remain committed to returning to Watkins Glen, a favorite venue for many of our drivers, teams, and staff,” said SRO Motorsports America president and CEO Greg Gill.

“We’re thankful for our friends at Circuit of the Americas welcoming us back for a second time this season. Every week is a new challenge and we’re happy to have a quick solution to replace our rounds at Watkins Glen.”

Remaining events will continue to follow approved COVID-19 safety protocols established by local, state, and federal health authorities.
