IMSA has increased the number of crew members allowed per car beginning with next weekend’s round at Road America.
In a bulletin sent to teams Monday evening, WeatherTech SportsCar Championship entries will now be allowed to have up to 17 “essential personnel” per car, up from the original limit of 15 crew at both the WeatherTech 240 at Daytona and Cadillac Grand Prix of Sebring.
As has been the case, the number includes drivers, crew members and entrant representatives who all have access to the paddock.
Michelin Pilot Challenge and IMSA Prototype Challenge teams, meanwhile will be permitted to have up to 12 crew (from ten) at the Road America race as well.
It is so far the only published change to IMSA’s COVID-19 event operations protocol since IMSA’s return to racing at Daytona International Speedway earlier this month.
