HSR and HMSA Cancel Barber Historics, Sommet Des Legendes

Birmingham, AL – Historic Sportscar Racing and Historic Motor Sports Association officials announced April 28 that the May 15-17 running of the HSR/HMSA Barber Historics at Barber Motorsports Park has been cancelled.

The decision was made following an update Tuesday by Alabama Governor Kay Ivey that did not alter an order banning “non-work related gatherings” which has been in place since March 28. The order specifically includes “sporting events” as one of the group activities prohibited.

Next month’s Barber Historics would have been the second running of the jointly-operated HSR and HMSA event that made a successful debut on the same weekend last year on the 2.38-mile circuit.

Possible makeup dates for the HSR/HMSA Barber Historics will be discussed with Barber Motorsports Park officials in the near future.

In addition, they also announced that the joint HMSA/HSR Sommet des Legendes race weekend at Le Circuit Mont Tremblant scheduled for July 10-12 is also cancelled, primarily over concerns of the present U.S./ Canadian border closure and when that might be lifted.

Both of these events will be back on the 2021 HMSA/HSR calendars. Visit hmsausa.com and/or hsrrace.com for information and schedules for the remaining season.
