CONCORD, NC : As the 2020 racing season would have been fully underway across not only the United States, but around the world, we know many of the competitors rely on our Master Schedule section for upcoming INEX-sanctioned and non-sanctioned events for your planning. Obviously with the COVID-19 pandemic that has been ongoing since early in the year, race tracks have been forced to close their doors as precautions by state and country officials. Some of those restrictions are slowly being lifted and as we get race date rescheduling information, those dates can be found in the same place as always, U.S.A. Schedules and International Schedules.

All of the races scheduled for the month of May in Atlantic Canada and Ontario have been canceled or postponed to a later date. The Ontario Legends Series events at Peterborough Speedway and Sunset Speedway for the month of May have been postponed.
Atlantic Canada is facing provisional restrictions that does not allow border crossings currently, thus putting a halt to the start of the 2020 racing season in that region. All events scheduled for May have been canceled or postponed.
Central Alberta Raceways has been given clearance by the local authorities to hold a spectator-closed event Saturday, May 16th and Sunday, May 17th with very strict social distancing guidelines in place. The Legend Cars are part of the racing schedule for the two day show.
Unfortunately, the 2019-2020 Australian Legend Car season appears to be over after all the remaining events were canceled due to the pandemic giving race teams a 3 month head start into the offseason. The season usually ends in late May to early June, but all of those events have been scratched from the schedule. Series promoters are now working on a 2020-2021 season schedule in hopes to return to racing in September.
UNITED KINGDOM / IRELAND :
As the 2020 season was getting geared up to get underway in early April at Brands Hatch Indy, the Coronavirus hit and forced all the European countries to enforce lockdowns and forbid any type of social gatherings. Since then, the order that was set to expire on April 30th was extended to June 30th, which means the UK Legends season is on hold until July, unless the order is lifted beforehand. The series has already had 4 total races over two weekends lost to the pandemic and face losing the event on June 6th and 7th back at Brands Hatch as well.
Just like their neighbors, the Irish Legends are in a similar situation as they eagerly await the start of their 2020 season. Events at Mondello Park and Kirkistown in April were postponed and the next event on May 30th at Kirkistown is in jeopardy of being scratched as well. The Irish Legends next scheduled race isn’t until July 11th at Mondello Park, so hopes are they can get racing for that one.
We will continue to monitor and update the schedule pages as more tracks receive the clearance to hold race events around the world. If you find an event is scheduled, but not listed, drop us a message on Facebook or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be sure to get the information posted.
