IMSA has announced that a limited number of fans will be allowed to attend the Acura Sports Car Challenge at Mid-Ohio on September 25-27. The governor of Ohio has approved for a total of up to 6,000 spectators to attend the event. Tickets must be purchased online, with no tickets available to be purchased at the gate.
Fans on property are required to wear a face mask. All spectators will be obliged to enter the facility through Gate 1 and will be subject to a temperature check and health screening upon entry. Additionally, the garage paddock will not be open to the public.
“Mid-Ohio fans have a longstanding tradition of being among the most avid and loyal toward sports car racing of any race fans anywhere,” said IMSA President John Doonan. “We’re pleased to know that some of them will have the opportunity to join us next weekend for the Acura Sports Car Challenge at Mid-Ohio, and we expect to repay their loyalty with another fantastic weekend of IMSA competition.”
“We’re thrilled to go racing again at Mid-Ohio for the Acura Sports Car Challenge. Sports car racing is what the facility was built on, so it’s great for fans to be able to come out and enjoy premier, world-class IMSA sports car racing,” said Craig Rust, president of Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. “Everyone’s cooperation and adherence to all the COVID-19 protocols and guidelines we have in place will make it another successful weekend for us all.”
