The 60-minute, two-driver, one pit stop event will be run at a later date
BOWMANVILLE, Ont., Canada – Due to a heavy rain storm Sunday afternoon at the Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, Round 4 of the Pirelli World Challenge SprintX series has been postponed to a later date on the 2017 PWC schedule.
Per PWC series chief steward Peter Roberts, the historic 2.458-mile, 10-turn road racing circuit had standing water around the racing surface including two sections of running water due to the constant rain system traveling through the Ontario area.
“The rain system was just too heavy to run the SprintX cars under safe conditions,” said Greg Gill, CEO and president of WC Vision, producers of the Pirelli World Challenge. “We will determine the makeup date and location in the near future. We want to thank the racing fans who came to CTMP this weekend for their support. We look forward to returning to CTMP in 2018.”
The Pirelli World Challenge Championships will now move to popular Lime Rock Park in Lakeville, Conn., on May 26-27 with doubleheader races in SprintX, GTS and Touring Car.
