As you know, in its fight against the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Belgian government has taken some prohibitive measures against mass gatherings this summer.
Nevertheless, Spa Grand Prix welcomes the decision made today by the Coordination Committee – with the support of experts handling the easing of lockdown restrictions – to allow our national Grand Prix to be held behind closed doors. We would like to thank the Walloon government for its support in the negotiations in recent weeks.
Given the current circumstances, the organisation of a Grand Prix under regular conditions is impossible.
Holding the race behind closed doors was therefore the only solution to preserve the sporting aspect of our event. This way, we can contribute to the establishment of a 2020 F1 championship.
The holding and TV broadcasting of our race will allow you to witness a great motor sport moment, a moment which only Spa Francorchamps can offer!
However, we are looking forward to seeing you again next year around the world’s most beautiful racetrack.
