IMSA has released a new version of the 2020 schedule, including the one for the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship.
There are no changes for the first four races, once the season gets restarted. So that makes Daytona and Sebring run in July, Road America on the switch between July and August, and the GT-only weekend at Virginia International Raceway towards the end of August.
The 6 Hours at the Glen has been moved forward to 3-6 September, and the GT-only weekend at Lime Rock Pack being run one week later. That has been made possible since none of the full season GTLM teams in IMSA will race at Le Mans – both Porsche and Corvette opted to pull out of the French race this year.
The Le Mans weekend is still a non-IMSA weekend, before the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course race will go on as planned – but still as a date clash with the Nürburgring 24 Hours.
The teams will have a three week break before Petit Le Mans at Road Atlanta. To weeks later it’s time for Laguna Seca, before the season ends mid-November at Sebring International Raceway.
The previous schedule had 6 hours, 10 hours and 12 hours races in just one and a half month. That has been spread over a bit more than two months in this version.
The IMSA season starts again on 4 July at Daytona International Speedway, with a 2 hours and 40 minutes race.
The revised IMSA schedule looks like this:
