The COVID-19 crisis has largely forced motoring enthusiasts to live without their favourite sporting fix in 2020. But motorsport is coming back to life – a little different than before, with no, or restricted live spectatorship, doubled-up venues and less in the way of globe-hopping, but back to life all the same.

Here’s what’s now back up and running, or soon will be, and where to watch it.

Formula 1

After having its opening round in Melbourne cancelled on the starting line, F1 has returned with 13 races for 2020 and the prospect of more events being added. With the opening rounds having been run, including a double-header at Silverstone in the UK, the series moves onto Spain, Belgium, Italy, Russia, Germany and Portugal.

Virgin Australia Supercars

Australia’s biggest racing series got two rounds of 2020 under its belt before bunkering down in March. The battle recently resumed in Sydney and is headed to Darwin for double header events in mid August, before travelling to Townsville for another double header event. The rest of the schedule remains subject to change due to growing Covid-19 developments on the east coast, with the exception of motorsport’s Grand Final event, the Bathurst 1000.

Motorsport Australia Championships

The Australian Racing Group roadshow – headed by the TCR touring cars, S5000 open-wheelers and old-school Touring Car Masters – starts its 2020 season in Sydney in early September. A further three rounds of the series are scheduled for Sandown, Phillip Island (Victoria) and Bathurst (NSW) but, much like Supercars, changes could be forced by a changing coronavirus landscape.

Another series to bed down in March, MotoGP restarted its 2020 with rounds two and three in Spain over consecutive weekends in July. Eleven more European rounds will follow through to November and four more outside of Europe were expected to be confirmed soon.
