Reuters:- A Formula E race scheduled for Rome on April 4 will not take place due to the coronavirus, the all-electric series announced on Friday (March 6), but alternative venues are being considered. Italy has ordered all major sporting events throughout the country, including top-flight Serie A soccer games, to be played without fans for one month in a bid to curb Europe’s worst coronavirus outbreak.

The race is the second this season to be called off due to the virus.

A Chinese Formula E round in Sanya has already been postponed from March 21 and five races have taken place so far on a calendar that originally featured 14 and could lose further rounds. The series, which uses mostly temporary circuits on city streets, said it would also assess the possibility of holding a race in Rome once restrictions had been lifted.
