Based on the announcement of Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki and the subsequent decision of the Łódź Voivode of prohibiting the organization of mass events with the participation of the fans in the Łódź Voivodeship, due to the risk of an outbreak of the COVID-19 coronavirus epidemic, the European Individual Ice Speedway Championship competition, planned in Tomaszów Mazowiecki 21st of March 2020 at 5PM, has cancelled on this date. We are trying to find another one.
“The listed event is international (…), so you should expect the arrival of participants from places where the incidence of Covid-19 has been confirmed. There is a high probability of uncontrolled spread of SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus among the participants of the event. disease. Based on the recommendation of the Chief Sanitary Inspectorate from 8th March 2020, which is the result of an analysis of the epidemiological situation, the organization of a mass event with the participation of the public poses a high risk of an outbreak of SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus having a negative impact on the health and lives of people” – we can read in a announcement of the Łódź Voivode.
In connection with that, FIM-Europe, Polish Automobile and Motorcycle Association and Speedwayevents.pl jointly decided to cancel the event in Tomaszów Mazowiecki at the originally scheduled date.
– We adopted the Łódź Voivode’s decision with full understanding. Security issues are absolutely priority in the current situation. We have decided together that organisation of the tournament without public participation does not make sense. We have to wait for more favorable circumstances. And then think about the new date of this event – says Piotr Szymański, chairman of the FIM Europe Track Racing Commission.
