DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – The IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship schedule will see the series return to traditional venues in 2021, with 12 events on tap between January and October.

The calendar begins with a week-long celebration of speed at Daytona Int’l Speedway, leading up to the 59th Rolex 24 at Daytona, and runs through the 10-hour Motul Petit Le Mans in its familiar, season-ending slot at Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta.
