IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship

The IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship is the top sports car racing series in  North America, bringing manufacturers and competitors together from all over the world to race across some of the most famous and iconic road courses in the world. The 11-race championship features a series of shorter sprint races as well as legendary endurance races, such as the Rolex 24 At Daytona. The series consists of five classes, all competing within their own divisions as well as the overall finishing result. Every car has a minimum of two drivers in each race, sharing the driving duties over the course of the event. Wright Motorsports competes in the GTD class, a class comprised of both professional and amateur-ranked drivers.
