The Supercars’ Melbourne round has been cancelled, following the Australian Formula One Grand Prix in pulling the pin because of the coronavirus.
Four races were planned this weekend to run alongside the F1 season-opener at Albert Park but grand prix organisers called it off on Friday because of the ongoing health crisis.
“Given the cancellation of this weekend’s event, we will look to reschedule another event later in the year. We are fortunate that this year’s calendar enables us to do so,” a Supercars spokesperson said.
“Supercars will continue to adhere to government health advice and act to ensure the health and safety of our fans and our people remains our primary focus.”
Defending champion Scott McLaughlin and Red Bull Holden great Jamie Whincup split the season-opening races in Adelaide last month.
