SRO America Confirms Return to Circuit of the Americas to Replace Watkins Glen

12 August 2020

Austin, TX --  As a result of the ongoing pandemic, it was announced that the GT World Challenge America powered by AWS race weekend on September 17th - 20th at Watkins Glen International has been postponed to the 2021 season. 

A replacement venue has been chosen and the series, along with Pirelli GT4 America, TC America, and GT Sports Club America, will head back to Austin, Texas for a second visit to Circuit of the Americas. The race weekend dates will remain the same on September 17th - 20th, with the private event set to take place with all scheduled rounds of each championship. 

“We remain committed to returning to Watkins Glen, a favorite venue for many of our drivers, teams, and staff,” said SRO Motorsports America president and CEO, Greg Gill. 

“We’re thankful for our friends at Circuit of the Americas welcoming us back for a second time this season. Every week is a new challenge and we’re happy to have a quick solution to replace our rounds at Watkins Glen.”

SRO America has returned to racing with two race weekends completed at VIRginia International Raceway and Sonoma Raceway. Along with strict Covid-19 protocols, the series, in partnership with EventCheck, have introduced a successful beta test of its contact logging and virtual credentialing app. 

Remaining events will continue to follow approved COVID safety protocols established by local, state, and federal health authorities. 

All the weekend race action from Circuit of the Americas will be streamed live on SRO Motorsports Group’s YouTube Channel and Series Websites. In addition, Sunday’s GT World Challenge America powered by AWS race can be viewed live on CBS Sports Network.
