July 14, 2020Contributor

Are you a fan of motorsports? If so, then you have probably been missing having live races on television that you can watch from home or being able to go to the stand and feel like you are a part of the action.

With the stay-at-home orders interrupting your normal life, you are not able to see or participate in your favorite sports or motorsports even as a fan.

Alternatives like re-watching older races or playing online racing games have become the new norm for many people who are waiting to hear when things can go back to normal so that motorsports can start up again and once again be televised.

However, this isn’t always a good alternative, since many people have become sick of watching the Sim-Racing events to get their fill of the racing experience.

Well, for those who have been missing the races, you will be happy to know that the Giti motorsports calendar has dates for new races in the year 2020, and as early as July 11th. So, you can again get excited to be apart of the action as the world gets used to the new social distancing practices while at public events.

This makes headway on a whole new schedule of events that will last the rest of the 2020 year.

Though the first part of this scheduled year was subjected to the stay-at-home order that kept many people from leaving their homes except for the most essential things, fans of motorsports were no longer able to see the races that they have become accustomed to watching.
