GPR Covid-19 Response – Updated 3/17

Great Plains Region Coronavirus update:

Since our last update, the precautions to protect against the coronavirus have reached unprecedented levels. The health and safety of our members remains paramount for our club. The board of directors has made the decision to cancel all GPR events for the remainder of March and all of April. We will continue to follow the recommendations of our local and national health officials to guide our future decisions.

Events cancelled:
April 4 – DE101 and Tech Quiz at Porsche Omaha
April 11 – Porsches and Pancakes
April 14 – Ladies Dinner at Sage Student Bistro

We also received a phone call on March 17 from the management at RPM. They have regretfully cancelled our DE scheduled for May 2-3. This was primarily due to some track improvement projects. The contractors have shut down their operations due to the coronavirus. The plan was to black top the entrance to the road course down to, and including, some of the paddock area. They were also planning to repair sections of the road course and put a Nascar type sealant on the track. It’s very encouraging that they are committing to a large capital project like that. We are certainly disappointed that this work won’t be completed at this time and that we are shut out of RPM for the second year in a row.

Stay healthy friends,
