The wick 338 Sunday August 9

Race update for this Sunday at Southwick

The race will still be run as a regular championship points paying race (except for the 65s, 85s and Superminis, those classes are non-championship).

Riders will still earn promotional points at this race.

We will now give everyone two throwaway races for this series.

This race WILL NOT impact anyone's Ironman status. If you miss this race it will have NO effect on your Ironman status. If you race it and DNF a moto it still will have no effect on your Ironman status.

We will continue to evaluate the situation in New England as it is changing week to week.

We took these steps to try and get this race in and to try and be as fair as we could to as many riders and the tracks as we could.

Rhode island travel alert!!!

We just got word from the guys at Southwick that their Board of Health will be requiring all Rhode Island residents traveling to Southwick to bring a negative Covid-19 test that has been done within the last 72 hours of them arriving with them to the track.

We're very sorry for this short notice but the track was only notified this afternoon.

At this point we don't have any update on points or how this will affect other tracks.

Please pass this message on to other riders and friends from Rhode Island.

The State has just released information that Rhode Island is no longer on the list of lower-risk states and is now subject to the COVID-19 Travel Order.

This means that anyone who visits from Rhode Island would have to complete a Massachusetts Travel Form and would have to quarantine for either 14 days or until a negative COVID-19 test result is received. For more information on the travel order and to keep up to date on lower and higher risk states, please visit https://www.mass.gov/info-details/covid-19-travel-order.

Schedule update, August 9th now at Southwick

Due to the Covid-19 restrictions in the state of Connecticut the August 9th race has been moved from Central Village to Southwick, please tell your friends!

no championship points for 65s, 85s or the superminis at southwick 8-9

We will run the same class/points schedule that we would have run at Central Village so that means there will be no championship points for the 65s, 85s or Supermini classes. Those classes will be run for trophies only, all other classes will run for championship points.
