SVRA and WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca have decided on the rescheduled date for the Trans Am Speedfest: December 3-6, 2020.

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused many racing events to be uprooted. Thankfully, the Sportscar Vintage Racing Association (SVRA) has announced a reshuffling of their schedule, rather than cancellations. One of these schedule alterations include the Trans Am Speedfest at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca.

“Every decision we have made with respect to the pandemic reflects our commitment to the safety of our fans, members, drivers, and sponsors. That’s job one,” said Tony Parella, SVRA President, CEO and majority owner of the Trans Am Series presented by Pirelli.

The 2020 SVRA schedule consists of eleven remaining races, three of which have undergone date changes. The Road Atlanta Grand Prix, the Lime Rock Park Festival, and the Laguna Seca Trans Am Speedfest have been moved to the fourth quarter of the year. The Road America Spring Vintage Festival has been postponed to a date that is yet to be determined.
