-  New provisional Silverstone 500 date already secured



 
In line with this morning’s announcement by Motorsport UK, the first four rounds of 2020’s Intelligent Money British GT Championship have been postponed amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.



The UK’s national governing body has extended its suspension of all organising permits and Certificates of Exemption for motorsport events until at least June 30 following Monday evening’s address to the nation by the Prime Minister.



The championship’s traditional season opener at Oulton Park, due to take place on April 11 & 13, had already been postponed. Now, British GT’s subsequent rounds at Snetterton (May 16/17), Silverstone (June 6/7) and Donington Park (June 20/21) are also on hold pending further developments.



Championship organisers, SRO Motorsports Group, were already discussing contingency dates for these events with circuit owners MSV and the BRDC prior to this morning’s Motorsport UK announcement. As such, a new date for British GT’s three-hour Silverstone 500 showpiece has already been secured for the final quarter of 2020. Opportunities to compete at other UK and European venues are also being explored.



Further updates will be provided once other events have been rescheduled. Organisers still fully intend to stage seven rounds as per the original 2020 schedule.
