As part of a management shuffle, IMSA announced Tuesday the departure of longtime series and technical official Scot Elkins.
Elkins, who had joined the previous incarnation of IMSA in 2008, had served as COO of the American Le Mans Series, and most recently was the Managing Director of Technical Regulations.
He will continue with IMSA until Jan. 24, finishing his technical-related duties in the build up to the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship season-opening Rolex 24 at Daytona.
“I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at IMSA and have many fond memories from the ALMS and TUDOR Championships,” Elkins said. “I will truly miss the day-to-day involvement but the many friendships I have made over the years will continue.
“Perhaps there is an opportunity to continue being involved – it would be an honor to be able to consult on selected projects.
“I still have a lot of passion for IMSA and the many initiatives with which I was involved, but we’ll have to see what develops. It’s been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life and I wouldn’t trade it for anything.”
Elkins was recently appointed Race Director for the Mazda Road to Indy Pro Mazda and USF2000 series and is expected to take on other motorsports-related projects as part of his new consulting firm.
His role within IMSA will be replaced by a newly established technical committee, consisting of Scott Raymond, Charlie Cook, Jeff Mishtawy and newly appointed TUDOR Championship Series Manager Geoff Carter.
“Scot has been an extremely valuable member of the IMSA management team for many years,” said IMSA President and COO Scott Atherton. “He gets and deserves credit for a long list of accomplishments and successes – from the ALMS and most recently the TUDOR Championship.
“He has elected to pursue other interests within the motorsports industry and we wish him well in his new endeavors.”
