DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – IMSA President John Doonan confirmed a provisional six-race schedule for the IMSA Prototype Challenge Wednesday as part of his state of the sport address.

The six-race IMSA Prototype Challenge season will feature a two-class format in 2021, with new specification LMP3 cars and updated Evo machines making up one class, and 2020 IMSA-specification LMP3 machines eligible for a second class for the 2021 season only.

All six races will be one hour and 45 minutes in length.

The LMP3 driver champion in IMSA Prototype Challenge will receive a $100,000 IMSA credit applicable toward entry fees for any 2022 WeatherTech Championship event.

The award will be divided equally among both drivers if there are co-champions.

The 2021 calendar will kick off in late January at Daytona Int’l Speedway, prior to the Rolex 24, and conclude in October during Petit Le Mans at Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta.
