IMSA has announced that the annual WeatherTech Night of Champions will take place Sunday night Oct. 13.

The Chateau Élan Resort & Winery in Braselton, Ga. will once again host the event for the fourth consecutive year.

The winners will be honored for their achievements in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship less than 24 hours after the season concludes at the Motul Petit Le Mans at Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta.

The resort will also host the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge Awards – as it has since 2014 – on the evening of Friday, Oct. 11. That will take place just a few hours after the season closes with the FOX Factory 120 at Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta.

The WeatherTech Night of Champions recognizes team, driver and manufacturer champions in all four IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship classes – DPi, LMP2, GT Le Mans and GT Daytona.

Honoring the champions of the IMSA Michelin Endurance Cup and WeatherTech Sprint Cup will also take place.

“The WeatherTech Night of Champions is annually one of the most important dates on our calendar,” said IMSA CEO Ed Bennett.

“We had a great deal of positive feedback last year by holding the event on Sunday, and we are looking forward to another special event this October. This year’s championships appear to be going down to the last lap.

“This event will allow everyone the chance to see that raw emotion from the champions that have put so much time and effort into their title.”

Chateau Élan is minutes away from Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta, the site of the 10-hour Motul Petit Le Mans that will close out both the 2019 WeatherTech Championship and Michelin Endurance Cup season.

The weekend also will include season finales for the Michelin Pilot Challenge, IMSA Prototype Challenge and Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge USA by Yokohama.

More details and ticket information for the WeatherTech Night of Champions and IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge Awards will be available in the near future.
