Sebring has been dropped from round six of the BP Supercars All Star Eseries in favour of a triple-header round at the Circuit of the Americas.
As reported by Speedcafe.com, the decision has been made after evaluating feedback by drivers and fans who found it unappealing that they had to learn two new tracks per week.
“We’re finding that the viewers are enjoying not having to learn a new track,” Nathan Prendergast, General Manager Television for Supercars told Speedcafe.com.
“The drivers are enjoying being able to focus on one track in preparation for each round.
“The fans and viewers, if they don’t know the tracks, when we did the four races from the previous venue we got some feedback that they were really confused.
“Sticking to the one track is better for viewers. It is easier and simpler from a server perspective.”
The announcement comes a week after a similar decision was made to axe the Nürburgring from round five. Opting instead to have three races run around the Spa-Francorchamps circuit.
Prendergast also confirmed that the field will race the same configuration that was used when the Supercars championship visited the Lone Star state back in 2013
Another calendar change will also occur in round seven.
The series will race on the Charlotte Motorsport Oval instead of the Talladega Superspeedway after it was found the cars could run the entire circuit at full throttle, providing no challenge to the drivers.
Round Six of the All Star Eseries gets underway on May 13 from 8 pm NZT.
