Corona Virus updates

2 months ago

PIR submitted a restricted opening proposal in early May to the City of Portland.  We continue to wait for a decision regarding that proposal.  The anxiousness of status is exacerbated with the May 14 resolution of Governor Inslee of Washington State approving motorsports facilities to open if they abide to specific COVID-19 restrictions and controls. California has also approved restricted motorsports events.  Once more information is available regarding the status of PIR's plan, we will advise our User Groups and the public immediately. Thank you for your support and patience during these extraordinary times. Stay safe and healthy.

This shift is in support of the NTT INDYCAR SERIES’ efforts to run as many of its points championship races as possible in 2020. The date at PIR moving back also opens up the summer calendar further for the Indianapolis 500 to run on August 23, 2020.

This rescheduled date is subject to the ongoing guidance and mandates of national, state and local authorities regarding public gatherings. The health and safety of all associated with this event will remain the priority of the Grand Prix of Portland and PIR.
