Following IMSA’s move of the Virginia International Raceway round to Aug. 26-28, Pirelli World Challenge has now moved its scheduled race at the Utah Motorsports Campus – formerly Miller Motorsports Park – forward two weeks.
It will now see the Utah/VIR date clash created be avoided, as the new World Challenge date in Utah will be Aug. 12-14. The Utah round is also the second Sprint-X weekend of the year.
While many drivers are still yet to confirm their 2016 plans in either or both championships, the removal of this clash frees a second IMSA and World Challenge conflict; both championships race on the same docket at Long Beach in April.
The only head-to-head conflict right now is the Sept. 16-18 weekend. IMSA is at Circuit of The Americas but ends on the Saturday, while Pirelli World Challenge has a doubleheader at Sonoma Raceway.
