Second Circuit of the Americas date replaces Watkins Glen

The Circuit of the Americas will host a second round of the TC America series this season after the cancellation of the planned event at Watkins Glen.

The decision to postpone the Watkins Glen event to 2021 comes as a result of issues caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, which has already led to delays with the current season.

The Circuit of the Americas will instead take a second round on the calendar having held the opening meeting at the start of the year.

The meeting will be held on the same date as the Watkins Glen event was due to take place; 17-20 September.

As with other events since racing resumed, three TC America races will be held during the COTA weekend.

“We remain committed to returning to Watkins Glen, a favorite venue for many of our drivers, teams, and staff,” SRO Motorsports America president and CEO, Greg Gill said.

“We’re thankful for our friends at Circuit of the Americas welcoming us back for a second time this season. Every week is a new challenge and we’re happy to have a quick solution to replace our rounds at Watkins Glen.”
