However, the promoter of the UIM’s premier series stated today that, ‘all the locations will be announced in the next weeks’.
With races slated to take place in China in September and October, they will be highly dependant on the COVID-19 virus outbreak and the advice that F1H2o are given nearer to the time.
The season finale will again be hosted by Sharjah in late December.
