Wayne, at a minimum you could do Lunch time touring with your car! They say there is a maximum speed, and you can't pass the pace-car. However, if you do the touring on Friday when there are less cars on-track I can tell you the guy driving the Pace Car is having a good time and has no thoughts of whatever that max speed was supposed to be, LOL
Also, I think there is a practice day prior to the event that you could also do. My neighbor has raced in that event many times, I can get more info if you would like.

I'll make some inquiries with Road America and The historic TA group to try and verify if any of the AMC's will be there. Looks like the 71 Championship car is based out of Michigan, so a pretty good chances.
At a minimum I will do a Friday cruise through the local windy roads with Any AMCers that wish to join, concluding with a lap of the original course that was on public roads, and a cookout on Saturday!
I'll get information on what hospitality facilities may be available If I get enough confirmations.

I had a great conversation with the Road America Hospitality Coordinator. Road America is on-board with an event coinciding with the July Brian Redman International Challenge!

We are reviewing options for entry packages including Food vouchers, a show area, a commemorative windshield sticker, and potentially an on-track drive of some kind.

The track hosts all automotive groups from Ferrari owners, to Motorcycle clubs, so options are vast. I think the AMC enthusiasts would enjoy a more simple option like a package including track entry, a meal voucher, and an AMC specific show/parking area at the track. Perhaps a fan favorite show trophy?

There are also air-conditioned hospitality tents and many more options, but those all include a price. I think the AMC group is a burger and a brat sort of crowdWink

The tricky part at this point is estimating the number of cars/participants that will attend. There are a few ways to manage this, but it's outside my area of expertise. PM me if anyone has thoughts or experience with this or is willing to assist.

As we get more detail, I'll need to give this an 'official' name, and start a new thread as well as additional social media exposure.

Event Name idea,Admittedly, it's a bit long:

AMC TA Championship 50th anniversary at Road America

Cheers.

From reading this post, I gather that the American/Canadian border is closed and none of us can cross it, but 25,000 people from the other direction will be allowed to enter and never return home from places with little to no consideration given to this virus situation.....I'm confused !!!!!
Thankyou....Bob

Huh? Road America is in Elkhart lake, Wisconsin. What does that have to do with crossing the border? Confused

I withdraw my previous comment. The border to the North should only be closed to keep Tony and the Canadians out. This would help protect the supply of beer in the states.
