IMSA has made a significant adjustment to its WeatherTech SportsCar Championship calendar with the addition of a second consecutive race at Daytona International Speedway, which will play host to the series as it returns to action in July.
The new Round 2 at Daytona, set for the Fourth of July weekend, replaces Watkins Glen International, which has been moved to October 2-4; the Sahlen’s Six Hours of The Glen was originally planned for June 26-28 as Round 2 in the last IMSA schedule.
A trip north to Canadian Tire Motorsport Park on July 5 has been removed from the latest WeatherTech calendar in light of border crossing restrictions; it has been replaced by a July 17-18 visit to Sebring International Raceway for a standard-length race.
CTMP has offered to transfer tickets purchase for the 2020 event to 2021, or to provide a full refund. Click here for details.
The last major change involves moving Lime Rock from mid-July to the end of October.
The new races at Daytona and Sebring will be run without spectators, with NBCSN carrying live coverage of the July 4 DIS round. IMSA’s Michelin Pilot Challenge series will make its return in July at Sebring
