The date for the GT World Challenge America powered by AWS round at Circuit of The Americas has been set, while calendars for the remaining 2021 SRO America series have been confirmed.

Announced at the annual SRO press conference at Spa, Pirelli GT4 America, TC America and new-for-2021 GT America series will all run on GTWC America weekends, with no deviations to each schedule.

SRO America President and CEO Greg Gill revealed to Sportscar365 earlier this month that several other events were being considered, including street races at Long Beach and Nashville for possible inclusion in GT America, with Canadian Tire Motorsport Park not initially planned to be on the schedule for the Bronze-rated driver series.

Speaking to stakeholders during last week’s press conference, Stephane Ratel indicated that will not be the case, with all four series set to run on each of the seven weekends.

The Circuit of The Americas event, which initially had a to-be-determined date, meanwhile, has been confirmed for April 30 – May 2, three weeks before NASCAR’s planned debut at the facility. 

No other changes have been made to the initial 2021 calendar that was released during the Indianapolis Motor Speedway weekend.

2021 SRO America Schedule:
March 5-7 – Sonoma Raceway
April 30 – May 2 – Circuit of The Americas
May 21-23 – Canadian Tire Motorsport Park
June 11-13 – Virginia International Raceway
Aug. 27-29 – Road America
Sept. 17-19 – Watkins Glen International
Oct. 15-17 – Indianapolis Motor Speedway
