Coronavirus further delays LED panel delivery
Thursday 5th March, 2020 - 2:14pm
Supply chain delays caused by the coronavirus look set to see Virgin Australia Supercars Championship teams run without LED information panels at the Beaurepaires Melbourne 400.
Components needed for the manufacturing of the board in Australia are being sourced from China, which has been worst affected by the COVID-19 flu strain.
Supercars has today confirmed to Speedcafe.com that it does not know when the completed panels will arrive.
Over 75 of the panels are being manufactured to accommodate for the three panels per car, which will be placed in the front windscreen and side windows. It is expected the panels will display on-track position.
The Beaurepaires Melbourne 400 runs as part of the Formula 1 Rolex Australian Grand Prix over the March 12-15 weekend.
