Trans Am Returns to Track with Spectators

Jun 25, 2020

The Trans Am Series is returning to the track this weekend at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, following a four-month break caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Nearly 45 cars amongst five classes are set to compete in races on Saturday and Sunday, which will be open to a limited number of spectators. Motorhome and tent camping will be permitted, but grandstands will not be open. Spectators will be subject to a temperature check and health screening when entering the track.

The Sportscar Vintage Racing Association, Formula 4 United States Championship and the Formula Regional Americas Championship will also be participating in on-track activities.

“Fans always add to the weekend excitement,” said Trans Am Racing Company President John Clagett. “We appreciate everyone at Mid-Ohio working with the state officials to allow for spectators. We know they miss racing just as much as we do.”

“Our entire team greatly appreciates the leadership of Governor DeWine and Lieutenant Governor Husted in responsibly restarting Ohio as well as the county commissioners and Health Commissioner Bragg of Morrow County along with Ohio State Representative Romanchuk,” said Craig Rust, president of Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. “I know our fans are excited to see live racing again, and we will continue to work closely with our local health officials to ensure the event is handled in a safe manner.”
