January 6, 2021 – IndyCar officials have announced that the Grand Prix of St. Petersburg has moved from its original March date to April 23 – 25. The change comes amid continued concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic. The Grand Prix of St. Petersburg will continue to host Rounds Three and Four of the Mazda MX-5 Cup presented by BFGoodrich® Tires.

 

Race organizers and local officials hope the seven-week delay will allow more fans to attend the race on the streets of St. Pete and runways of Albert Whitted airport.

 

“We appreciate the officials at INDYCAR for their support in setting a new date for the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg, and also to Mayor Kriseman and his team at the City of St.Petersburg for identifying a time when it will be conducive for more fans to attend,” said Kim Green, co-owner, chairman and CEO of GSSP, organizers of the Petersburg. “We are grateful to keep the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg in the springtime window.”

 

The April 23 – 25 weekend was originally set to see Mazda MX-5 Cup at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca, but that event was moved to September, also due to COVID-19 concerns.

 

The 2021 Mazda MX-5 Cup Championship continues to be 14 races in total, and is set to open as part of the iconic Rolex 24 At Daytona event January 27-29.
