2021’s Joburg Kyalami 9 Hour, which was due to host the Intercontinental GT Challenge Powered by Pirelli season finale on December 2-4 at Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit, will be postponed.
The detection of coronavirus variant B.1.1.529 in southern Africa, announced on November 25, and the resulting travel restrictions already imposed by several countries will prevent most international teams and championship staff from flying to South Africa.
The local promoter and SRO Motorsports Group – who are jointly responsible for staging the race – are already working with local authorities to evaluate travel solutions and reschedule the event.
A new date for the Joburg Kyalami 9 Hour to be held at Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit will be confirmed and announced on Monday.
The safety of all participants and staff will take utmost priority in any decision to reschedule this season’s Joburg Kyalami 9 Hour.
