What will likely one time additional IMSA Championship race will happen at Road Atlanta September 4th thru 6th 2020. The event replaces Watkins Glen on the schedule. This is certainly good news for Atlanta area Motorsports fans, even if its for an unfortunate reason. We also are disappointed to lose the iconic Watkins Glen race.
An excerpt from the official IMSA release:
IMSA today announced realignment to upcoming dates on its 2020 schedule, which includes shifting of the Labor Day Weekend six-hour race from Watkins Glen International to Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta, and the GT-only event from Lime Rock Park to the Charlotte Motor Speedway ROVAL.
Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta will host the six-hour IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship race on Sunday, Sept. 6, with three other IMSA-sanctioned series that all were previously scheduled to compete at Watkins Glen also moving to Michelin Raceway that weekend. A four-hour IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge race will be held on Saturday, Sept. 5, with doubleheader races for both the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge USA by Yokohama and Lamborghini Super Trofeo races also planned for the weekend.
Tickets and camping packages for this event will go on sale to the public at noon on Monday, Aug. 3. Tickets can be purchased at https://tickets.roadatlanta.com
We’ll update this page with more information when it’s released.
