Notably missing from the 2014 schedule is Lime Rock Park, which has had events in both the Grand-Am and American Le Mans Series for some time. Also missing are Mid-Ohio, Barber Motorsports Park, and Kansas Speedway, each of which was on the 2013 Grand-Am schedule, and the Baltimore Street Circuit, which has run an ALMS race on Labor Day Weekend for the last three seasons.
BMW has always been strong at Lime Rock, a circuit that favors handling. Long Beach, also a good track for BMW, remains on the schedule.
Each of the new series’ classes will run a total of eleven events; the new series’ prototypes and GT Le Mans classes will run in Long Beach, while the Prototype, Prototype Challenge, and GT Daytona classes will run in Detroit. The prototypes will sit out VIR, leaving the race to the Prototype Challenge, GT Le Mans, and GT Daytona classes. The series’ classes are described here. Since the class structure was announced the GX class has been folded into GT Daytona.—Brian S. MorganBack to News
