Corvette Racing fans should be cautiously optimistic as IMSA makes adjustments to the 2020 racing calendar in the expectation that racing will resume in the second half of the year.
The revised calendar features new dates for the stops at Mid-Ohio, Laguna Seca, and Petit Le Mans, while also taking into consideration the new September date for the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
According to Sportscar365.com, these changes will help balance the 2nd half of the racing schedule as Sebring and Le Mans have already been pushed back several months, while the Long Beach Grand Prix has been officially canceled although there are conversations going on about piggy-backing the race on another date at another venue.
The biggest date of the year for Corvette Racing fans is the 24 Hours of Le Mans and organizers have already moved that race to September 19-20.
