VIR will host the second race weekend of GT World Challenge America powered by AWS along with the debut of the GT Sports Club America series. This series features a mix of current and former GT3 homologated platforms as well as SRO’s new GT2 category. The sprint format designed for Bronze level drivers over the age of 40 will make host its first official event in North America. 

Pirelli GT4 America (Sprint and SprintX) along with TC America are scheduled to complete three-races at VIR, with one round making up for cancelled events at St Petersburg, Florida.

Teams contesting GT World Challenge America powered by AWS will join SRO’s global GT3 series, Intercontinental GT Challenge powered by Pirelli, during the Indianapolis 8 Hour to end the season.
