The IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship is North America’s premier sports car endurance racing series. Competitors from across the globe compete for honors at some of the most historic tracks in North America.
The Prototype (P) class features the fastest and most technologically advanced cars in North America. The mix of Daytona Prototype international (DPi) and LM P2 cars featured in this class are specifically designed and engineered for the race track. While unique in appearance, the technology being developed in the Prototype category is relevant and directly tied to manufacturers’ R&D initiatives.
The Prototype Challenge (PC) class is a spec class featuring open-cockpit race cars and technology such as a carbon fiber chassis, carbon ceramic brakes and a sequential gearbox. The PC class will complete its final season of WeatherTech Championship competition in 2017.
GTLM Class: Utilizing the same technical regulations as the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the GTLM cars are the most elite and fastest GT cars on the track. Based on production models, they are engineered to extract the maximum performance possible. The class serves as a true proving ground for leading manufacturers such as BMW, Corvette, Ferrari, Ford and Porsche.
The GTD class cars are enhanced by technology and utilize the global FIA GT3 technical specifications. The GTD class consists of cars from leading manufacturers such as Acura, Audi, BMW, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Lexus, Mercedes and Porsche.
