WEC are continuing to plan to contest the 6 Hours of Spa on August 15 despite the Belgian government having announced an extension of its nationwide ban on mass gatherings until the end of August.
“We are still planning to hold our race in August,” a WEC spokesperson told Autosport.
“We will know more in a couple of months and release more details then.”
Asked if a race behind closed doors without spectators is a possibility, she said:
“There are so many unknowns at the moment – all options are available.
“It is too early to speculate on what might change.”
The extension of the mass gatherings ban has already compelled the GT World Challenge to postpone their blue riband event the Spa 24 Hours.
Meanwhile, the FIA have acknowledged they have entered discussions with event organisers concerning the running of the Formula 1 Belgian Grand Prix slated to be held on August 30.
Interestingly, the Belgian government is yet to establish a firm definition of what makes up a ‘mass gathering’, explaining why WEC are continuing to plan ahead for the secluded race.
But should the 6 Hours of Spa not happen, it would mean the WEC field’s next round won’t be until September 19-20 for the 24 Hours of Le Mans, seven months since the last race in the United States.
