“This has been a tough decision to take but ours is a circuit that draws owners and teams from all around the world, and while you might say things are moving in the right direction in many parts of Europe, unfortunately there is still not enough certainty,” explained Agustín Zulueta, CEO of the 52 SUPER SERIES.
“Our approach is to be responsible and pragmatic looking to what we feel confident we should be able to deliver, rather than overpromise and underdeliver. In this dynamic situation we need to minimize the risk to everyone and put ourselves in the best position to deliver safe, competitive events commensurate with the status of the world’s leading grand prix circuit.
“With this plan we feel we have an option that will deliver the maximum amount of enjoyable, competitive racing in environments we know well, with minimal travel and transport involved. It will be great for everyone to be welcomed back to these venues in Spain, Valencia, Mallorca and Menorca, which are so popular with our owners and teams where we have had such great racing over the years.”
