Touring Car B-Spec races are scheduled for Miller Motorsports Park, April 27-29, the Chevrolet Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix, June 1-3, and Mosport International Raceway, June 22-24.

“The Touring Car B-Spec class is designed for club racers to get exposure to professional racing and be involved in the Pirelli World Challenge,” said Competition Director TC Kline. “These cars will compete in the same configuration they do in SCCA Club Racing, but will race in Pirelli World Challenge on 15-inch Pirelli racing slicks. B Spec cars have preparation limited to shocks, springs and the required safety equipment. We are looking forward to the additional excitement Touring Car B-Spec will bring to our races.”

The nine races will run as follows: Touring Car and Touring Car B-Spec cars will run separate of the GT and GTS classes at Detroit, Miller and Mosport weekends.

On the Saturday of each of the aforementioned event weekends, a 30-minute race will run, followed by a five-minute staging on pit road, followed by another 30-minute race. The grid for the first race on Saturday will be set by a qualifying session, while the grid for the second race will be set by the finishing position in race one.

On Sunday, a 40-minute Touring Car/Touring Car B-Spec race will run. The grid for Sunday’s race will be determined by the total points accumulated by each driver from the weekend’s qualifying session and Saturday’s races.
