UMC Eliminates Spectator Entry Fees

for Amateur Races

 

Admission fees applicable only for four major events

 

TOOELE VALLEY, UTAH (May 7, 2018) — In an effort to give back to our community and to promote our local amateur racing series, Utah Motorsports Campus has announced that it is waiving spectator admission fees for all of its amateur racing events in 2018.

 

“Our community has been so supportive since we took over running the track that we wanted to do something to give back to them,” said Willem Geyer, General Manager of Utah Motorsports Campus. “Additionally, our local sports car, motorcycle, karting and off-road racing series put on excellent races, and they deserve the support of the local fans. We thought, by eliminating spectator gate fees for these events, that it would give our local fans some great events to attend for free and also increase the exposure for our local racers who work so hard to put on a good show.”

 

The free-admission status applies to all races staged by the sports cars of the Utah Region of the National Auto Sports Association (NASA Utah), the road racing and Supermoto motorcycles of the Utah Sport Bike Association (USBA), the go-karts of the Utah Kart Championship and the off-road trucks and buggies of the Utah Region of the Lucas Oil Regional Off Road Racing Series.

 

Additionally, the policy extends to all semi-pro events such as the new ChampCar Rocky Mountain 24 endurance race, the two visits from the Porsche Pirelli Trophy West USA and the two annual appearances of the Porsche Club of America, as well as the second annual Cruzer Palooza Classic and Custom Car Show.

 

The only racing events that will require spectator admission fees will be the four major events at UMC this year: the MotoAmerica Championship of Utah, July 21-22; the Pirelli World Challenge Grand Prix of Utah, August 11-12; the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series, August 25-26; and the AHRMA Bonneville Vintage Grand Prix, Sept. 1-2. At these events, children aged 12 and under will be admitted at no charge.

 

Tickets for the major events are now available for purchase by clicking here. Note that The Lantern Fest on May 19 is a separate, non-racing event and tickets are available at www.TheLanternFest.com.  

 

Utah Motorsports Campus is managing the facility formerly known as Miller Motorsports Park on behalf of Tooele County while the procedures to sell the facility take place.
