TORONTO, ON – The Ontario government has just unveiled its rules for permitting fans to attend racing events at the province’s motorsports venes. Under the guidelines – which go into effect on June 30, 2021 as part of Ontario’s ‘Roadmap to Reopen’ Step 2 plan – motorsports facilities will be able to welcome a percentage of their capacity. This is a change from the hard-cap of 100 fans that was permitted, regardless of a facility’s size, during the 2020 season.
Included in a wide-ranging list of reopening limits and rules, Ontario’s racing facilities will be restricted to 25% of fan capacity during Step 2, which is expected to last at least 21 days.
Ontario has actually already surpassed the targets set for Step 3 of the reopening plan – in terms of percentages of the population who have already received their first and second doses.
Inside Track is working to connect with track owners to gauge their reaction to this news.
