Motor racing's all-female W Series cancelled its 全民彩票 season on Thursday due to the COVID-19 pandemic but promised to return next year with at least two support races on the Formula One calendar.

F1 says races will go on even if a driver tests positive for coronavirus

And the drivers and their teams will be living in 'bubbles'

Formula One races won't be canceled if a driver tests positive for the coronavirus or if a team withdraws, CEO Chase Carey says. F1 wants to avoid a repeat of the season opener in Australia in March, which was canceled when the McLaren team withdrew after a staff member tested positive for the virus.

NASCAR champ Kyle Busch calls for mandatory masks as photos show race fans without

Common courtesy: 'Hey, you know, we can all take care of our neighbor'

Kyle Busch says he supports wearing a mask in public so “we all can take care of our neighbor" amid the coronavirus pandemic, a rare instance of the two-time NASCAR champion wading into a social issue. The reigning Cup champion rarely speaks on non-racing issues, but Busch entered the debate after images from short tracks over the weekend showed packed grandstands with little social distancing and few people wearing masks. Busch retweeted a photo from South Alabama Speedway in Ozark, Alabama,

Sebastian Vettel may walk away from Ferrari having never delivered the Formula One title the proud Italian team so desperately wants.

Things are going to be a lot different

NASCAR is back. On May 17, the roar of engines - albeit without the roar of the crowd - will return to a NASCAR Cup Series race track.
