Despite new cases of COVID-19 in New South Wales and Queensland, the upcoming Race Tasmania event is still slated to go ahead.
Pencilled in for Symmons Plains on January 24-26 and Baskerville Raceway on January 29-31, the event is being run by Barry and Garry Rogers who have been dealing with the state government.
Australian Racing Group chief executive Matt Braid described the event as "not in danger of not being run".

"Tasmania's okay. Obviously they've got their limits down there on crowds and so forth, [but] the event can actually happen," he told Speedcafe.com last week.
"The main issue we've had and been dealing with is getting the New South Wales competitors and other crew and management and staff that we need down there.
"That's progressed, so GRM [Garry Rogers Motorsport] have taken a lead through their contact with the Tasmanian government.
"We've had some really good and positive conversations with them, we've supplied some information, we are very hopeful of a positive outcome from them."
A government spokesperson confirmed Braid's comments earlier this week.
"Events Tasmania are closely engaging with the organisers for the upcoming Race Tasmania events," they said.
"Major events in Tasmania are conducted in accordance with the framework for COVID-19 safe events and activities, and advice on who can come to Tasmania and any border restrictions in place are regularly updated on the Coronavirus Tasmania website."
Last week, veteran racer Lee Holdsworth was confirmed as a starter for the Tasmanian races alongside a plethora of former Supercars talent.
