IMSA’s portion of the Long Beach Grand Prix weekend with the WeatherTech SportsCar Championship will send 22 cars from two of its three classes into action around the Southern California street course.
With Prototype and GT Le Mans serving as the featured IMSA product in Long Beach, 14 cars representing the headlining Daytona Prototype international factory entries and the privateer LMP2s will be joined by eight factory GT machines for the 100-minute Bubba Burger Grand Prix.
Together in Prototype and GTLM, Acura, BMW, Cadillac, Corvette, Ford, Mazda, Nissan and Porsche will duel for manufacturer honors at one of IMSA’s most important venues. Only Ferrari, which is affiliated with the Risi Competizione GTLM program, will be missing from the brand-rich grid. Long Beach also serves as an off weekend for IMSA’s privateer GT Daytona category.
