LONG BEACH, Calif. – After working to secure a replacement date for its postponed April 17-19 event, the Grand Prix Association of Long Beach has announced that it will not be able to conduct the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach later in the year.

As such, the race has been officially canceled.

“Over the past few days, we have actively pursued the possibility of rescheduling the Acura Grand Prix to a later date this year with the City of Long Beach, the Convention Center, the NTT IndyCar Series, IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship and our other race sanctioning bodies,” said Jim Michaelian, president and CEO of the Grand Prix Association. “We are very disappointed that we were unable to put something together for all our loyal fans and valued clients, but trying to reassemble all the elements that have made the Long Beach event such a success does not appear feasible for 2020.

As a result, our attention will now be focused on planning the 46th Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach on April 16-18, 2021.”

The GPALB also announced a ticket credit/refund policy for ticket holders, which includes the option of a credit for tickets purchased – applying to the same level of admission to the 2021 Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach – or a full refund if requested by April 30.

The ticket credit option also includes a price protection plan, which protects those ticketholders against price increases in 2021, as well as guarantees ticket purchases for admission in 2022 at the same level for the same pricing as their 2020 tickets.
