QUINCY (WGEM) — The 2020 Quincy Grand Prix has been canceled, according to the race committee.
The Grand Prix Race Committee announced Thursday that in the interest of safety for the spectators and competitors, the race should not be held during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The committee stated, "the logistics of trying to control the event to keep people safe and meet state and local safety guidelines would be very difficult. We do not want the Grand Prix, City of Quincy, Park District or our Sponsors to get a bad reputation for not doing what was best for everyone."
The event had originally been pushed back from June 13-14 to October 10-11 in hopes that the danger from COVID-19 would have passed.
The committee stated the 2021 Quincy Grand Prix will be held June 12-13 and they hope to make it a fantastic event.
We apologize to everyone this great event could not be held this year and we appreciate your understanding. See you in 2021.Quincy Grand Prix Race Committee
