The International Motor Sports Association (IMSA) has announced both the WeatherTech SportsCar Championship and the Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge 2018 schedules.

Twelve world-class road racing facilities and events highlight the 2018 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship schedule, which kicks off January 6–8 during The Roar Before The Rolex 24 at Daytona Beach, Florida.

In 2018, the WeatherTech Championship will feature three classes of competition. The Prototype (P) class includes Daytona Prototype international (DPi) and LM P2 race cars battling head-to-head for class and overall race honors, the GT Le Mans (GTLM) class features factory-backed GT race cars in what is widely considered the best GT racing in the world, and the GT Daytona (GTD) class includes GT3 race cars from world-renowned manufacturers prepared by top professional race teams with highly competitive Pro-Am driver lineups.

Incidentally, the IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge enters an exciting new phase in 2018, with the complete adoption of GT4 technical regulations for the headlining Grand Sport (GS) class and the introduction of the new TCR (Touring Car) class alongside the continuation of the ultra-competitive Street Tuner (ST) class.

All three classes will compete in a 10-race Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge schedule that also kicks off January 6–8 during The Roar Before The Rolex 24 at Daytona Beach, Florida.
