Track Night 2020: Thunderhill Raceway Park - September 17
In light of the current COVID-19 situation, every attempt will be made to minimize the risks of exposure to the virus. New processes and procedures are being developed and will be put into place for events going forward.
Ultimately, it is your responsibility to assess the risk to you, both on-track and off, and to make the decision on whether or not to participate. If you are feeling unwell or are experiencing symptoms such as fever, cough, or shortness of breath please stay home. If you have been in contact with someone who has been experiencing these symptoms in the last two weeks, please stay home.
Please take this seriously. Each individual has different concerns about the risk of infection and it is important to take everyone's feelings into consideration. The approach we are taking and asking you to join us in is much in alignment with our "same team" approach. Just as your safety and well-being on track depend on everyone working together, the same applies in the paddock as well. As such, we ask that everyone respect the health concerns of others, whether you share them or not.
While on-site please take the health and safety of your fellow participants, volunteers, and staff into consideration and practice social distancing, wear a mask, and wash your hands, and/or use hand sanitizer frequently. All attendees and staff will be required to wear a face covering (mask, bandana, balaclava, etc.) any time they are outside of their own vehicle.
Thunderhill Raceway Park is a road racing course located 7 miles (11 km) West of Willows, California on Hwy 162. The course is a fast series of twists and turns with minor elevation changes. Thunderhill is owned and operated by the San Francisco Region of the SCCA. It is host to many motorsports events for cars and motorcycles. The SCCA uses Thunderhill for its automotive race competitions. The Northern California Chapter of the AFM runs several motorcycle races there every year. Track Night in America will run on the 10-turn 2 mile west course.
