Organisers of the IndyCar Series have announced that there will be no replacement for the cancelled Chinese round of the season. This dispels thoughts of moving the event to Road America and sharing the race weekend with the American Le Mans Series.
“After carefully considering all possible options for an additional race, we felt it was in our best interest to keep our schedule at its current 15-event lineup,” confirms IndyCar CEO Randy Bernard. “We want to make sure that when we add events to our roster they have long-term potential and are given every opportunity to be successfully promoted.
“The more we explored, the more we felt like we were rushing what could be good, long-lasting opportunities for the sport. I thank all of the promoters who entertained the possibility of hosting the IndyCar Series this season. It certainly validated what we already knew – there’s a lot of interest from venues across North America in hosting our sport.”
The championship is currently led by Australian Will Power, who – with three victories to his name so far - holds a three-point advantage over American Ryan Hunter-Reay. Scotland’s Dario Franchitti, four-time Champion, is currently down in eighth place.
