SEBRING, Fla. – The International Motorsports Ass’n has announced the postponement of the Mobil 1 Twelve Horus of Sebring at Sebring Int’l Raceway.

The event, originally scheduled for March 18-21, has been rescheduled to Nov. 11-14 and will serve as the season finale for the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship. The postponement comes in the wake of the ban on travel between Europe and the United States due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The travel ban will prevent a number of drivers, teams and key personnel from traveling to Sebring, Fla., for the event.

In addition to the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship portion of the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring, the rescheduled weekend on Nov. 11-14 will also feature the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge and IMSA Prototype Challenge.

The annual WeatherTech Night of Champions awards banquet will take place on Nov. 15 at the Seven Sebring Raceway Hotel. In addition, the season-ending Championship Awards for both the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge and IMSA Prototype Challenge will be held in conjunction with the Sebring race event weekend.
