WORLD WIDE TECHNOLOGY RACEWAY 2020 SCHEDULE UPDATE

April 1, 2020

We would like to thank you for your continued support of World Wide Technology Raceway and Gateway Kartplex as we deal with the challenges of the current health emergency. As many of you know, Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker has extended the stay-at-home order for Illinois residents through April 30, 2020. World Wide Technology Raceway is following the guidelines and orders issued by state and federal officials. As a result, we are postponing all events scheduled for the month of April, 2020. Additionally, some spectator-oriented events scheduled for early-to-mid May have been adjusted.

We currently are working with our partners, track rental clients and sanctioning bodies to develop a new schedule of events once the restrictions are lifted. Our venue hosts more than 300 event days annually and our goal is to resume when permitted, complete as many events as possible and find alternative dates for the events that have been postponed. Since this unprecedented global event is ever-evolving, we will remain fluid with our events and additional 2020 schedule updates will be necessary. Once we have clarity on the situation at hand, we will release an updated schedule.
