The second round of GT World Challenge America powered by AWS has been officially postponed, following confirmation from Canadian Tire Motorsport Park that its Victoria Day Speedfest will not go ahead on May 15-17.

The season-opening weekend for the track formerly known as Mosport was due to also feature the NASCAR Pinty’s Series, Pirelli GT4 America Sprint and Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Canada by Yokohama.

A replacement date has not yet been announced.

“The decision to postpone has been made by CTMP ownership and management, our event partners, along with the various sanctioning bodies involved in our Castrol Victoria Day SpeedFest Weekend,” a statement from CTMP read.

“It is our hope that at some point we will be able to reschedule our season opening race weekend, and we will continue to keep you informed as the situation changes and evolves.”

The postponement of the CTMP round, due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, comes in the wake of SRO America calling off its Touring Car Festival at Lime Rock Park, which was to happen the week prior.

A SRO America spokesperson told Sportscar365 they expect to release details of its updated schedule in due course.

SRO Motorsports Group founder and CEO Stephane Ratel indicated that “late June” would be the earliest any of its series would likely return to racing.
