The Michelin Pilot Challenge will return to the same ten events and venues that have hosted the series since for the last two years, in an unchanged 2020 calendar released Friday during IMSA’s annual ‘State of the Series’ address.

All ten events will once again run in support of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, kicking off with the four-hour round at Daytona International Speedway in January.

Watkins Glen will again play host to the second endurance race of the season in June, with the eight remaining rounds all being two hours in length.

No changes have been made to the class structure, which will again see SRO GT4-spec machinery in GS alongside the TCR class.

“The IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge has seen a significant amount of evolution over the past several years, from the adoption of international technical regulations to the introduction of a new tire and series entitlement partner,” said IMSA President Scott Atherton.

“Those core elements provided us with a new foundation and have gotten us to where we are now, with a full grid of terrific sports cars, teams and drivers participating in one of the most competitive, stable and professional championships in North America.”

NBCSN will have television coverage of all races, with live streaming of every event also available on IMSA.tv and the IMSA app.
