After months of anticipation, IMSA released Sunday its list of driver ratings for the TUDOR United SportCar Championship.

All drivers taking part in the TUDOR Championship have been ranked according to the ACO/FIA’s medallion system of Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze, the latter two categories for gentlemen and/or amateur drivers.


Teams competing in both the Prototype Challenge and GT Daytona classes can only have one Platinum or Gold-rated driver in a traditional two-driver lineup, with a maximum of two pros allowed in a four or five-driver squad typically seen in races such as the Rolex 24 at Daytona.

There are no driver restrictions for the Prototype and GT Le Mans categories.

IMSA’s list, based off the FIA’s global driver rating standard seen in the FIA World Endurance Championship, features a number of revised and new ratings, with some of the notable ones listed below:

Upgraded from Silver to Gold:
Lawson Aschenbach
Guy Cosmo
Jan Heylen
