Friday through Sunday, August 21 to 23 – WeatherTech SportsCar Championship at VIR. The International Motor Sports Association (IMSA) racing series is based in the United States and Canada and is a result of a merger between two existing North American sports car racing series, the American Le Mans Series and Rolex Sports Car Series.
On May 15, IMSA revealed its plans to return to racing this summer with a revised 2020 calendar for the
IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship and the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge. The WeatherTech Championship will return July 4 at Daytona International Speedway. This Fourth of July event will feature an evening race with WeatherTech as its entitlement partner and a live television broadcast on NBCSN. This will be a no fans allowed event. The Michelin Pilot Challenge will resume alongside the WeatherTech Championship at Sebring International Raceway on July 17-18. The WeatherTech Championship event also will be televised live on NBCSN. This will be a no fans allowed event.
The race at VIR is still scheduled for August 21 to 23 however, a decision has not been made regarding fans being allowed to attend, therefore ticket sales via the VIR website are on hold for the time being. If fans are allowed and you’d like to attend, we’ll probably depart early on Saturday August 22 and drive to VIR to enjoy the pre-race activities and watch some of the preliminary racing. Later in the afternoon we’ll drive to the Microtel Inn & Suites by Wyndham in Hillsborough, NC where we have 10 rooms blocked for the night of August 22, 2020. Then on early Sunday we’ll return to the track for the race.
This hotel is about 40 miles south of VIR, with a room rate of $60.00 plus tax which includes breakfast. To reserve one of the rooms call them at 1-919-245-3102 and be sure you tell them you want the Beachcomber rate of $60.00 plus tax.
