A Formula E race scheduled for Rome on April 4 will not take place due to the coronavirus, the all-electric series announced on Friday.
The race is the second this season to be called off due to the virus. A Chinese Formula E round in Sanya has already been postponed from March 21.
Italy has ordered all major sporting events throughout the country, including top-flight Serie A and Coppa Italia soccer games, to be played without fans for one month in a bid to curb Europe’s worst coronavirus outbreak.
“As a consequence of the ongoing health emergency in Italy…it will no longer be possible to stage the Rome E-Prix on April 4,” Formula E said.
The series said it would assess the possibility of holding the race once restrictions had been lifted.
The next race on the calendar will now be Paris on April 18.
