Current Summit Point Raceway Update
At this time the Summit Point Memorial Day weekend is on, we have submitted a procedure for the weekend to Summit Point management to share with the Governor's office. As this event doesn’t fit easily into any particular category of the orders, to confirm compliance we have been pro-active seeking authorization.
These new procedures will allow us to comply with existing orders for limiting contact in enclosed spaces, masks, gloves and hand sanitizer for the staff who deal directly with the racers. (For the foreseeable future we will use these at every event.)
Since these are the two areas where the closest interaction takes place, here is our new procedure for registration and tech.
Our goal is to limit personal contact to a minimum. (We are working on a touch-less registration but unfortunately we do not have a clear answer how an “app” would stand up in court as a signed waiver/release.)
One door in, (at Summit, the door to the East), and one door out, (the North door).
Each rider will be given their own pen, at the end on the line there will be a bucket for the rider to drop the pen in for us to sanitize when registration closes. (Registrars will sanitize their work station with wipes and/or spray anytime they return to their station and before leaving in the evening.)
One registrar will be stationed the door with gloves, face mask and hand sanitizer. They will have all riders sign a waiver and release at the door and control the access to 10 racers at a time in the room. (Unfortunately we have been advised that to get a true body temperature with an infrared thermometer, the subject has to acclimate to the ambient room temp for nearly 10 minutes before the test would be considered accurate so while we will have a touch-less thermometer available its accuracy could be compromised.)
Each registrar will have gloves, face mask and hand sanitizer for them and/or the racer to use. All staff in registration will be at least 6’ apart with their own table between them and the racer. We will allow only 10 riders in the room (east classroom), at a time with 3 registrars. (Tape lines on the floor 6’ apart).
Once the racer is finished and deposits their pen in the bucket, they will be asked to exit the North door.
Our goal is to limit personal contact to a minimum.
Each inspector will have gloves, face mask and hand sanitizer for them and/or the racer to use.
We will have multiple tech lines approximately 10-12’ apart.
Inspectors will strive to maintain 6’ separation in the lines waiting to be inspected.
Racer will bring a stand to tech with the motorcycle and place the bike on the stand and move 6’ away from the motorcycle. Then the inspector will evaluate the machines race-readiness. After placing an approval sticker on the machine or notifying the rider of what needs to be addressed, the inspector will move away from the machine and let the racer remove their machine from the tech area.
While we have some specific in-depth procedure changes for the staff, these are the outline we are starting with to mitigate the potential of spreading the virus among or racers and staff.
ASRA/CCS and Summit Point management believe event would be safe and in full compliance with existing restrictions but we understand new orders could be issued with immediate implementation that could remove/change procedures or require postponement or cancellation
