    I am SICK of silly season/election/corona news. I am ready for some RACING already.

          Same here. I cannot help but wonder, however, how much racing we'll end up getting in the months ahead.

            unfortunately, Unlike F1 and NASCAR, I don't see how Indycar venues or teams can afford to race without paying spectators.

              And I don't see how a promoter who has to take it on the chin this year is going to be back for next year.

                Fingers crossed that warmer weather will help. Wife and I were all set to go on a European tour (been saving for FIVE years), next month, and that is most likely ruined.

                It's nothing compared to the suffering of many, just another teeny tiny drop in the global ocean of misery.

                  Are promoters insured against this kind of stuff?

                      It is possible that they are, but what source do you have for this information? It is most likely true, but without solid proof we cannot know for certain

                        We know that Green Savoree (promoter of the race in St. Petersburg) does not have insurance (see below). Beyond that I can tell you that lots of big events/festivals don't have, or cannot get, insurance that covers things that can cause an event to be canceled such as terrorist attacks, "acts of god," force majeure (unforeseeable events), and the like. There's nothing new or unusual about that and language to that effect is typically incorporated into the sales terms of tickets.

                        "There have been no conversations at all about (it), other than the 16th annual Firestone Grand Prix is on," Savoree said. "If that situation changes, then we’ll deal with it."

                        Savoree added that the event does not have insurance that covers the outbreak or any effects on the race.

                            Just what I’ve read. Can’t remember the language that makes the virus exempt though.

                              Exempt from what?

                              If you mean the promoter cannot be held liable for the cancelation of an event caused by something such as this viral outbreak, and/or the promoter does not have to offer refunds in the event of such a cancelation, that would fall under the heading(s) of "acts of God" and/or force majeure (unforeseeable events).
