  • What Could Have Been: The COVID-19 pandemic resulted in a number of changes to the 2020 season:
    • The season calendar originally featured the usual 10 events, with Silverstone getting two places. The second Silverstone race would've been on the International layout for the first time since 2011, but this was cut when the calendar was reduced to 9 events over a much more compressed calendar. Another change was swapping the order of Brands Hatch's layouts, resulting in the Indy circuit becoming the season finale instead of the usual Grand Prix circuit due the revised calendar ending deeper into winter and concerns about racing on the Grand Prix layout after sunset.

    • Mike Bushell would've missed the original starting date due to a medical issue, but he later dropped out of the 2020 season entirely due to financial concerns caused by the pandemic. He was replaced by newcomer Ollie Brown. Andrew Jackson, a frontrunner of recent seasons, also dropped out to focus on other ventures.
    • There was also a possibility that Matt Neal could've missed the original opening rounds due to injuries he received from a cycling accident. The delay allowed him to recover in time for the series start.
    • Power Maxed Racing switched to only running a limited campaign to preserve resources for the 2021 season, leaving both Mat Jackson and perennial contender Jason Plato without a drive for the season.

How well does it match the trope?
