POSTPONED - Hoosier SCCA Super Tour (Atlanta Region)
March 14, 2020 Update: Hoosier Super Tour at Road Atlanta POSTPONED.
On Saturday, March 14th, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp declared a Public Health State of Emergency due to the spread of COVID-19.
In response, the Atlanta Region Board of Directors has determined it will be necessary to postpone the Hoosier Super Tour event currently scheduled for March 20-22 at Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta.
This was not an easy decision, nor one that we wanted to make. However, there were multiple issues that led to the decision.
* Georgia is in the early stages of the Covid-19 outbreak; between Friday and Saturday the number of confirmed cases doubled, with at least one death. As the week progresses, the numbers will certainly rise.
* Governor Kemp's recommendation is to follow CDC guidelines regarding social contact avoidance. Among those guidelines is that events that attract large numbers of people should not be held.
* Items necessary to decrease chances of contracting the virus (hand sanitizer and sanitizing wipes) are almost non-existant in retail stores as well as on-line sources.
* Many volunteers are in higher-risk groups due to age and generally being in close contact with other participants.
* The event would have several hundred participants including drivers, crew and volunteer race staff.
It is our hope to be able to re-schedule the Hoosier Super Tour at a later date this year.
Thank you for your understanding.
