Races will be held, but without fans at track

logoRoad America announced Tuesday that the racing portion of the MotoAmerica Superbike Series on May 29-31 will be held, but without fans due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Road America and MotoAmerica worked to find an alternative, but the task proved impossible due to unknown restrictions on outdoor events.

MotoAmerica, however, is still planning to return June 26-28, along with all previously scheduled public outdoor activities, including Vintage MotoFest.

That event will also feature the MotoAmerica Heritage Cup and the opening round of the Mini Cup by Motul.

“This event attracts competitors and fans, not only from the U.S. but around the world,” said Road America President and General Manager, Mike Kertscher. “As of today, we cannot predict when we will be at a point that our outdoor events meet the proper criteria for mass public outdoor gatherings in the state of Wisconsin.

“Make no mistake, we intend to come back stronger and ready to continue with our existing June events, including the WeatherTech Chicago Region SCCA June Sprints and the IndyCar REV Group Grand Prix presented by AMR. We also anticipate by mid-June there will be further transparency for hosting outdoor events, and we will be well within the final phase of allowing mass public gatherings to take place, which is a primary factor for why we added a weekend in June.”

Customers who have already purchased tickets, camping or other items for the MotoAmerica Superbike Series are asked to hold onto them for the MotoAmerica Superbike Series.
