The IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship has announced date changes for three upcoming events as the series unveils its revised schedule for the 2020 Championship season.

As IMSA prepares to return to action with the IMSA WeatherTech 240 At Daytona on Saturday, July 4, the sanctioning body today announced date changes for the rest of the calendar.

The Sahlen’s Six Hours of The Glen event weekend will now be held on Labor Day weekend, September 3-6, featuring all four WeatherTech Championship classes for the second round of the four-race IMSA Michelin Endurance Cup season.

The GT car only Northeast Grand Prix event at Lime Rock Park will take place the following weekend on September 11-12 & WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca will host the penultimate round of the Championship with all four classes on October 30-November 1.

All of the other events remain as previously scheduled and the season will end with the thrilling finale of the rescheduled 12 Hours of Sebring on November 11-14, which is also the final round of the Endurance Cup.

“These revisions to our 2020 schedules put all of IMSA’s stakeholders in the best possible position for success,” said IMSA President John Doonan.

“They are also the result of the ongoing spirit of collaboration with our promoter partners. Moving our Northeastern events into September should pay dividends from the standpoint of weather.

“WeatherTech Raceway on Halloween weekend also has the potential to be spectacular and will set the stage for a thrilling conclusion at Sebring.”

Sports Car and GT writer. Perhaps being named after James Hunt and Murray Walker (first and middle names) might have something to do with how I have always been motorsport obsessed. After failing to get int racing, I might as well write about it.
