Masters of Motors 2020 Update: Postponed to 2021 Due to COVID-19

To our valued 2020 Masters of Motors Entrants and Competitors,

We recognize this is an unsettling time, as the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation is continuing to evolve around the globe. We have closely monitored for months the developments related to the spread of the virus, and our priority remains the safety of our employees, suppliers, and customers as we take guidance from public health authorities. After recent event consultation from our public health authorities, our human resource team, and our legal department, we have had to make the difficult decision to postpone our 2020 competition until 2021. We had sincerely hoped that by now we would have a safer and clearer road map which would guarantee we could safely execute the Masters of Motors event here in Mentor in 2020, unfortunately that is not the case.

During these unprecedented times, we appreciate your understanding and we sincerely look forward to making the event bigger and better in 2021.
