As Road America opens the gates for the REV Group Grand Prix presented by American Medical Response doubleheader race weekend, July 9-12, there are a few things that fans need to keep front of mind.
“As the event draws closer, we encourage all our fans to purchase their tickets in advance and print them at home for contactless scanning at the gates and ease of entry,” said Mike Kertscher, Road America’s President and General Manager. “Walk-up tickets will be limited and with new safety measures in place, such as contactless temperature checks at the gates, this will allow a faster way to get in, find your parking spot, and enjoy the event. We also want everyone to know that masks are encouraged and don’t forget your lawn chairs and blankets so everyone can spread out and enjoy the races from their favorite viewing location. We are called America’s National Park of Speed for many reasons, with hundreds of acres of outdoor space working in our favor. So, get your tickets now, come early, and prepared, and we look forward to a great weekend.”
Under the guidance of public health officials, medical experts, and local, state, and federal authorities, INDYCAR and Road America will observe safe social distancing practices and provide enhanced hygiene and safety precautions for all fans attending the event.
Fans are encouraged to have a household plan of action in case of illness before attending the event, and if a family member becomes ill, immediate family members and anyone at risk are encouraged not to attend the event.
All guests will be screened in their vehicles with contactless temperature checks before entering the parking areas, and only essential racing personnel will have access to the INDYCAR garage area. A PPE kit that includes a face mask, as well as hand sanitizer will be provided to each guest upon arrival to the track.
Fans are encouraged to practice safe social distancing and wear a cloth face-covering where social distancing is difficult to maintain. Enhanced cleaning and sanitizing procedures will also be implemented throughout the facility during the weekend. Additional protocols and guidelines for spectators can be found at www.roadamerica.com/safety
