Transition Time: The IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship Is Here


IMSA wrapped up its 2015 TUDOR United SportsCar Championship in grand fashion on Monday night with the TUDOR Night of Champions at Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta, two days after the Petit Le Mans powered by Mazda.

With the 2015 season now in the history books, it’s full speed ahead for the debut of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship and the 2016 season. The brand new Ford GT, which debuts in the WeatherTech Championship GT Le Mans (GTLM) class next year, spent its first two days on the high banks of Daytona International Speedway this week. And the Porsche North America team – fresh off its 2015 championship-winning season – announced plans to return to the GTLM class with a two-car effort next season.

IMSA has been busy transitioning to 2016 also. You’ll notice the new WeatherTech Championship logos featured prominently on and throughout the site. Look for much more to come with in the days, weeks and months ahead.

And if you’re a follower in the social landscape, your eyes were not deceiving you this morning. We have merged the previous TUDOR Championship and IMSA Facebook pages into one, all-encompassing IMSA page that will include the WeatherTech Championship, as well as other IMSA-sanctioned series such as the Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge, Cooper Tires Prototype Lites powered by Mazda, and Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge series in both the USA and Canada.

If you’re haven’t given us a ‘Like’ yet, head on over to Facebook and do it now!

On Twitter, we’ve swapped our handles, making the former @UnitedSportsCar handle the new @IMSA. If you were already following @UnitedSportsCar, you’re all set. If you only were following @IMSA previously, you’ll need to go back and “refollow” @IMSA here.

Like Facebook, @IMSA will be the Twitter home for the WeatherTech Championship and other IMSA-sanctioned series. The @UnitedSportsCar handle will be discontinued as of November 2, 2015.

They might call it the offseason, but there’s a lot going on! Look for a number of exciting team and driver announcements over the next several weeks, and we’ll have cars on the racetrack again next month for two days of official testing at Daytona International Speedway.

Visit often and be sure to follow us in social media to stay up to date.
