Following the American President's announcement on a ban of all flights from the majority of Europe to the States, the World Endurance Championship has quickly moved to cancel the WEC portion of next weekend's Sebring meeting.
Gerard Neveu CEO of WEC said: “This decision was not made lightly. Our teams and officials place great value on racing at Sebring in front of its enthusiastic and knowledgeable fans. While this cancelation has been forced upon us because of the travel restrictions from Europe to USA, WEC remains committed at all times to the health and welfare of its teams, officials and race fans. Further, the quality of every aspect of a WEC race event is at the heart of everything that we do and will never be compromised.”
In addition to the cancellation of the race, WEC’s Sebring test scheduled for 14th and 15th March will now not take place.
