New date revealed for postponed Le Mans EWC
French endurance event to take place in September.
The Le Mans 24 Hours round of the 2019/2020 FIM Endurance World Championship (EWC) will now take place on 5-6 September as the ongoing coronavirus sees increased restrictions on travel and large events.
The French health minister has put a ban on gatherings of more than 1000 people, prompting the EWC to decide to postpone the 43rd edition of the 24 Heures Motos, initially scheduled to be held on 18-19 April.
These measures are being adopted in response to an unprecedented situation and the organizers are confident on the understanding of those concerned despite of the inconvenience caused.
The event is one of many postponements in motorcycle racing, with three stops of the MotoGP World Championship already impacted.
