Race organizers have announced that the 2020 Formula 1 Canadian Grand Prix, which takes place yearly in Montreal, has been officially cancelled.
In a statement, Canadian Grand Prix officials cited the health and safety of the fans and employees in the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic as the primary reason.
Originally scheduled to take place between June 12 and 14, organizers announced earlier in April that they hoped popular event could be postponed.
