The International Motor Sports Association (IMSA) today announced schedule updates for three 2020 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship and IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge events.
The Acura Sports Car Grand Prix at Mid-Ohio has been moved to the weekend of Sept. 25-27, 2020. It was originally scheduled for the weekend of May 1-3.
The IMSA Monterey SportsCar Championship at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca has been moved up one weekend to run on Sept. 4-6. It was originally scheduled for the weekend of Sept. 11-13. This date adjustment was made to accommodate IMSA competitors planning to participate in the 24 Hours of Le Mans, which now will run on Sept. 19-20.
The 23rdannual Motul Petit Le Mans at Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta has been moved back one week and now will run Oct. 14-17 to provide teams a more balanced schedule as the season comes to its conclusion. The original dates of the event were Oct. 7-10.
“Flexibility is critical during this time," said John Narigi, president and general manager of WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca. “With many events being cancelled outright, navigating the options with the skilled IMSA team to reschedule has been quick and easy. We all want to return to engaging our guests and bringing business back to the Monterey Peninsula by hosting this international event.
“Our hearts go out to Monterey’s tourism community who have been severely impacted by the circumstances of the past few weeks," Narigi continued. “We look forward to this community rebounding even stronger in the coming weeks and months and we will do everything we can to support our local businesses."
These three event date changes are in addition to the previously announced reschedule of the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring Presented by Advance Auto Parts, which now is set for Nov. 11-14. Previously purchased tickets for all four events will be valid on the new dates.
IMSA will provide additional series updates, broadcast information and event schedules as they become available.
