Blaming global shipping issues, organizers announced on Tuesday that the 2022 Hankook 24 Hour Sebring race has been canceled.
The 24-hour sports car race was scheduled for Sebring International Raceway, Nov. 18-2022, The European-based racing Creventic series raced at Sebring last November. The start of that inaugural event was postponed by one day, according to Sportscar 365, as some teams experienced shipping delays and had equipment arrive after the original scheduled start date.
Series officials fear shipping concerns will continue into the fall.
The series released the following statement:
"That experience, and the fact that the many of the same shipping concerns continue, led to Creventic officials to make the difficult decision. Given that shipping delays are temporary, Creventic and Sebring International Raceway officials will continue to work toward the return of the global series to Sebring, the birthplace of American endurance racing."
Creventic is said to be exploring options in Europe to replace the Sebring event.
