Bahrain Grand Prix to be held behind closed doors because of coronavirus

This month’s Bahrain Grand Prix will be held behind closed doors because of the coronavirus outbreak. Organisers said the race – scheduled for 20-22 March – would be “participants only” because allowing spectators at the event “would not be the right thing to do”. The Chinese Grand Prix from 17-19 April was postponed last month. “Balancing the welfare of supporters and race goers is a tremendous responsibility,” organisers said. The Bahrain Grand Prix takes place a week after the season-opener in Australia. Bahrain had implemented special measures to ensure the race would go ahead.
