COVID-19 Update

(UPDATED 4/7/20 - 8:14 A.M.)

Road America and its leadership team continue to monitor developments around COVID-19, also known as coronavirus. At this time, we are suspending all regular office hours, and paddock shop hours, and encouraging our staff to work from home in response to the coronavirus pandemic and local government directives.

We will continue to monitor the situation closely, listen to experts, and be transparent as to when we believe we will be able to resume normally scheduled office hours at Road America. For now, we have postponed our Spring Vintage Festival Featuring SVRA - May 15-17 due to COVID-19 and all other regular-season events remain as scheduled. 

Our ticketing office will still be open and managing calls remotely, and customers may still make merchandise and event purchases online and print their tickets at home. Printed tickets will still be made available and will be mailed at a later date.

We are encouraging everyone to follow basic hygiene precautions as recommended by the CDC, such as frequent handwashing, use of hand sanitizer, covering coughs and sneezes appropriately while practicing social distancing and encouraging people to stay about six feet away from others.

We also encourage everyone to keep informed of developments through a trusted source such as the official CDC (www.cdc.gov) and WHO (www.who.int) update sites.

For local information, the Sheboygan County Department of Public Health provides daily updates. 

Ongoing Efforts:

Once normal business hours resume, for those who are operating/managing events, Road America leadership advises that a proactive approach be taken, and additional measures are deployed to minimize the spread of any viruses.

Those measures include but are not limited to:

  • High-traffic worker positions (registration, waivers, etc.) should be issued nitrile gloves (preferred over latex due to allergies)
  • Equipment with high-contact rates (radios, headsets, clipboards, etc.) should be sanitized before and between uses when they are shared.
  • Events where loaner helmets are provided (i.e. driving schools), balaclavas (head socks) and disinfectant spray should be offered.
  • Any driver’s/corner worker meetings normally held indoors should be conducted outside wherever possible.
  • Minimize direct, physical contact between event attendees as much as possible. This includes, but is not limited to, event social functions, again practicing social distancing. 
  • Experts have repeatedly stated that the best defense is to practice good personal hygiene, with regular hand washing being highly effective at preventing the spread of viruses.

The safety of participants, staff, and spectators at Road America events is always a high priority. We continue to educate our teams to assist in preventing the spread of coronavirus. Road America leadership continues to monitor the CDC and communicates with other official local/national agencies and may adjust plans accordingly based on further updates and/or restrictions imposed.
