Cub Prix hits another Covid-19 speed bump


THE Petronas Malaysian Cub Prix Championship season could run over to next year due to the latest disruptions caused by Covid-19.

Cub Prix promoter Safe Aim Mutual Sdn Bhd yesterday announced that the sixth round of the series, scheduled for Oct 31-Nov 1, at the Sepang Circuit (North) has been postponed.

This is the second leg that got postponed since Safe Aim Mutual released its revised eight-race Cub Prix calendar in July.

Round five (Sepang, Oct 10-11) was already postponed before the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) was enforced in Selangor.

Safe Aim Mutual, in a statement released yesterday, said it was working on a revised calendar.

"We have not been able to obtain the final approval (from authorities) for round six to proceed as originally planned," said the statement.

"With two rounds already postponed, Safe Aim Mutual will issue a new calendar once the situation stabilises.

"The aim will be to finish the season by December or January next year at the very latest."

Under the current calendar (released in July), the eighth and final race of the season was scheduled to be held at the Tangkak Circuit on Dec 12-13.

Under normal circumstances, Cub Prix usually consists of 10 races per season. This year, the season has been shortened to eight after a late start.
