Lakeland, FL – Racecar Engineering™, after much consideration given to the current social challenges the racing industry is faced with today regarding COVID-19, and after weighing the ‘Pros & Cons’, has decided it would be best to cancel their annual Vendor College 2021 event during February’s Speedweeks® in central Florida.
To quote Racecar Engineering™ President, Steve Dorer, “I believe this is in everyone’s best interest to help ensure that we keep everyone safe, our doors open, and that we can continue on with ‘Business as Usual’ to better serve the racing and performance community as a whole. This was a very difficult decision for both me and my staff, as over the past two years, RCE’s Vendor College has been a tremendous success with the race teams and all of our vendors. Last year’s event drew close to 80 brands exhibiting onsite and interacting with hundreds of event attendees. While this breaks our new annual tradition of hosting Vendor College, we look forward to things calming down and getting back to semi-normal during 2021. We’ll take this opportunity to plan ahead for an even better Vendor College in 2022, which is a free event that we at RCE are so very proud to organize. But for now, and for the foreseeable future, we’ll concentrate on doing what we do best… By providing the absolute best racing parts and service experience we can to all of our customers and dealers nationwide, while continuing to support our high-quality & loyal parts manufacturers in a professional manner. We hope that everyone understands and respects our decision, and we look forward to seeing everyone again at Racecar Engineering™ Vendor College 2022.”
