Trans-Am Postpones Thunderhill West Coast Stop


MIAMI – In an effort to help reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus, Thunderhill Raceway announced that it will shut down all public access through April 2.

Additionally, track officials said that they cannot say with any degree of credibility whether the track will be open on any given weekend in April.

Given this uncertainty, and the updates and closings brought on by the COVID-19 virus, the Trans-Am Series presented by Pirelli West Coast Championship race weekend at Thunderhill Raceway April 3-5 has been postponed.

The goal is to reschedule the Thunderhill Raceway event in the late summer or fall.

“We have been trying our best to do the right thing but it appears that we cannot survive business as usual in this environment,” said David Vodden, Thunderhill President and CEO.

“We will allow private events where no flaggers are needed and no food service is offered beyond pre-prepared box lunches for no more than the stated 25 number, “ noted Vodden.  “We encourage our private test day visitors to not go into town, not to stay over-night and, generally, come in the morning and leave for home in the evening absent any footprint beyond the track.”

Trans Am Series Management and Ownership are continuing to monitor the situation and will provide updates accordingly.

The next scheduled event for both the National and West Coast Championships is set for May 1-3 at WeatherTech Laguna Seca.
