IMSA has announced further changes to it 2020 schedule by moving the six-hour race at Watkins Glen and the GT-only round at Lime Rock Park to different venues.
The traditional endurance round at Watkins Glen, scheduled to be held on September 6, has been relocated from Watkins Glen International to Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta, along with the IMSA-sanctioned support series.
The GTLM and GTD round at Lime Rock Park, meanwhile, has been moved to the Charlotte Speedway ROVA, where the two classes will compete in a 100-minute race.. It marks the first time that IMSA has raced at the Charlotte ROVAL.
The Michelin Pilot Challenge, which was also scheduled to be in action at Lime Rock Park, will not travel to Charlotte, but will instead compete in a double-header event at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course on September 25-27.
The two events have been moved as a result of the mandatory 14-day quarantine periods instituted by the states of New York and Connecticut for anyone arriving from the majority of U.S. states.
The championship indicated in a statement that the series could still see further schedule changes, with the round at Weathertech Raceway Laguna Seca reportedly also under threat.
“IMSA continues to monitor state and local COVID-19 guidelines which may make additional schedule revisions appropriate in the coming weeks,” it wrote.
