TOOELE VALLEY, Utah — In light of recent social-distancing directives from both the White House and the State of Utah, as well as a Public Health Order issued Tuesday by Tooele County, Utah Motorsports Campus will remain closed through April 30.
The decision was made to minimize the risk of the coronavirus to the track’s guests and employees.
“This is the time of year that we’re supposed to be kicking off our season, with lots of folks having fun with high-performance cars and motorcycles,” said Dixon Hunt, UMC Senior Vice President, “so it’s very disappointing to have to extend our closure. We’re all in this together, though, and safety is always our first priority.
“We will be monitoring events very closely, and the moment we can reopen our gates to our great racers and fans, we will do so.”
UMC will work with all its partners and customers to reschedule events that are affected by the extended closure.
“We would like to thank our parent company, the Zhejiang Geely Holding Group, for their ongoing and outstanding support, and also all of those people who are putting themselves in danger on a daily basis on our behalf,” said Hunt. “We encourage everyone to follow published guidelines and stay safe.”
