IndyCar’s Mid-Ohio double-header has been postponed

The Mid-Ohio IndyCar double-header scheduled for next weekend has been postponed.

Concerns surrounding the COVID-19 situation will see the two events moved later in the year, potentially as late as October.

“IndyCar and Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course have agreed to postpone The honda Indy200 at Mid-Ohio scheduled for Aug. 7-9 until a date to be determined in September and October,” a statement from the venue said.

“This decision was made through communication with local health officials given the current environment.”

Organisers announced last week that the Mid-Ohio venue would play host to two races, having initially been scheduled to host just one.

That announcement came after events in Portland and Monterey were cancelled as a result of the pandemic.

In Ohio, similar concerns have seen state health officials put large gatherings under pressure.

IndyCar will now next be in action for the Indianapolis 500, on August 23. comment policy reserves the right to deny any post that is abusive or offtopic. Users are encouraged to flag/report comments which should be removed.
