Covid-19 – Cautiously opening on-track activities
Shannonville, ON, May 15, 2020 – We were fortunate to receive some positive news regarding the reopening of our facility. The Ontario government announced that our on-track activities could resume as early as Tuesday, May 19, 2020.
This announcement follows a concerted effort made by many Ontario track promoters to get our story heard at the highest levels within the Ontario government. As our activities are distinct within the tourism industry, joining our voices helped considerably. We are grateful to be part of the Ontario Motor Sports Promoters alliance, comprised of 37 facilities, during this unique situation.
“In this initial step for reopening, we will be using guidelines presented in our Back to the Track initiative to safely host track days or practice events with limited competitors and minimal staff, and gradually progress into racing. There will certainly be a new normal when our doors open, and we will be asking everyone to be cautious and respectful. Most of our COVID-19 safety precautions are in place but there are some additional landscaping and paving items to be completed before we open the track,” confirmed John Bondar, President of Shannonville Motorsport Park.
All participants will be required to follow safety guidelines regarding social distancing and proper health measures to limit or eliminate exposure to possible respiratory illness.
We will be updating our website regularly and add all the pertinent information relating to our facility. We anticipate that we will be operational by the beginning of June. Please watch for additional updates on our website and on our Facebook page.
