Possibly Mid-Ohio and Road America. If they really had to I think you could see running after Petit on Sunday afternoon but would take them missing a couple rounds and teams wanting that event to sell the seats. GTD and LMP2 round Sunday while we break camp? And Mid-Ohio the same weekend as N24, how many Porsche drivers could be placed by Porsche over team need?

My brother has used to term "shuffling deck chairs on the Titanic" numerous times of late and it applies a bit to our situation in all sports. Everyone is spit balling ATM as there's too much differing and misleading info. This has got to play out a bit more but it's important to stay relevant and in the news, while being cognizant of public thoughts and feelings on this whole deal.

Best thing racing has done has been to embrace support and AIR e-racing. Yes, some of the Sebring physics were TERRIBLE and cars can't continue after spinning in the air without serious damage but it was something to start. Nascar has pushed for a bit more damage physics but allowed cars back in track quickly. And some of the drivers have HELLA rigs with full motion feedback, and can do commentary at the same time as the physical strain isn't the same. That and airing classic races in the usual spots gives people something to consume and something to talk about. It's a bit harder with "team" sports but it is doable as a stop gap. MLB and NBA opened up the archives a bit and offer something. Now come summer and football season, well that's a different matter and I fear the government response to interrupted football season

I tend to agree.
There's no chance of Detroit happening, and IMSA are just waiting for Indycar to say that, before they can.

Almost certain that WGI, Mosport and Lime Rock will go too, at least on their current dates.

If the spread of Covid19 in the US can be demonstrated to have peaked by the end of May, then we could possibly start the season at Laguna Seca.

Man, I'm holding out hope for detroit till the bitter end. I was planning on going again and taking my dad this year. He was excited about road tripping in his new camaro from georgia to michigan for it too. Until it is called, I'm holding out slim hope. Once I see indy pushed back, I'll lose hope though.

This is a dark year.

Oh, and my neighbor, who I share an apartment wall with, who is 60ish, who works in a nursing home, that is less than a mile down the road, said one of her coworkers tested positive for it. So it is right here amongst us. I felt creeped out about even going back outside afterward. Ugh. Just bracing to hear about a disaster in a nursing home here like in washington state....

I agree, hold out for the event. Let's hope. My Dad was coming over for a road trip to Sebring. Hopefully we get to do it in November.

Its coming. I'm already hearing of people who "pretty mych had it" in the Atlanta area over 2 weeks ago. Just not confirmed because there was no tests done. Hoping I'm wrong, but it's' about to hit the fan and hard.

Hopefully, it'll be long gone so you and Pops can make that trip and hope you and your neighbor stay well. It's an odd time.

I tend to think it's been around for a couple months longer than they think, because it was started around December and we had plenty of international travel between then and when it started becoming known over here. Just seems like it would have slipped in a lot sooner.

A few weeks ago, my daughter was extra tired, little cough, little sore throat, not enough to miss school or anything. Then that saturday I wake up with a fever and sore throat. Then it was pretty much gone by the next day. So flu like symptoms for two healthy, young (ish in my part) no underlying condition people. Makes me wonder.

Then there's a guy at my work hacking up a lung for two weeks after coming back from vacation. I started calling him patient zero around the office, lol.

Ha! He was patient zero!!

My 14 year old tested negative for both strands of the flu and strep back in January. Fever and all for about 4 days. Don't know what it was...

Strange and scary times. One perhaps positive of the lack of response is that we may get back racing sooner.

listened to Marshall Pruett's talk with Stafan Johansson about Sebring 1984 overall win. Great stuff!

Got a very vivid memory of being on inside of back straight just uphill from where they start to break for turn 10 at road atlanta, petit le mans round 2010 or so, stefan johanssen in a zytek I believe, hearing a pop and a tire flopping/shredding at top speed, and seeing him keep it under control and down the hill. Must have blown right in front of us.

Sigh... indy 500 rescheduled. That's the last defense for the detroit gp for both series. This sucks.

Though I'm not sure michigan would allow the event even if the 500 had run as scheduled. The cases are exploding here and we're one of the worst states at this point.

Wait, did I just use "we" with michigan? Thats a first. I live here, the south (georgia) is my home.

Yeah, I think if it was a permanent circuit MAYBE. But street circuit, tax dollars, park makes for a hard sell with them having to start next month on construction, I think. I think it's June 1 for most sports and think you'll see VERY modified schedules after that for hockey, baseball, basketball, racing. And I don't want to think about the fall and what could happen all over again.

Thankfully it seems cooler heads are prevailing and discussions can be had without anger. Races can get moved, teams and players are assisting arena employees and MLB managed to have an owner's and players agreement on money without everyone throwing all the toys around. As much as regular people are being stupid it seems like series organizers know sports are important BUT are extra in life not required. It's an important step. Now to get people to stay home and we can actually get back to this.
