LONDON (Reuters) – The Turkish Grand Prix will take the place of Singapore’s cancelled Formula One race on this year’s calendar in October, the sport announced on Friday.

Singapore’s Oct. 1-3 night race was cancelled this month due to immigration restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Turkey’s race at the Istanbul Park circuit will slot in a week before the Japanese Grand Prix which remains scheduled for Suzuka on Oct. 10.
