Michelin GT Challenge Update

July 28, 2020

To our Fans, Sponsors, Partners and Employees,

It is with a heavy heart that we have to make the official announcement; there will be no spectators allowed at this year’s Michelin GT Challenge IMSA weekend.

We had hoped the tide would turn, but as circumstances are all too unpredictable these days, we need to make a firm commitment to this decision for planning purposes.

We are sure there will be some frustration and disappointment, but please realize this is not what either VIR or IMSA wants to see happen and the COVID-19 situation is beyond our collective control.

On a positive note, this event will have live stream and TV broadcast so you can catch all the racing action as it happens.

We hope and pray 2021 leads us into a better year with stability and consistency, which will return our ability to plan and schedule events that will include all of you!

We apologize for having to send out this letter and hope to have you back in 2021.

Thanks so much for your understanding and support,

Kerrigan Smith
VIR President & COO
