IMS Announces IMSA Battle On The Bricks For 2023
For the first time since 2014, the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship will return to Indianapolis Motor Speedway on September 15–17, 2023, as the headline event of a full weekend of IMSA sports car action billed as the “IMSA Battle on the Bricks” around the 14-turn, 2.439-mile road course. The two-hour, 40-minute WeatherTech Championship event will be held on Sunday, September 17, with live NBC network television coverage.
“Indianapolis Motor Speedway is hallowed ground in the world of motorsport, and we are honored to bring IMSA and the WeatherTech Championship back to IMS,” IMSA President John Doonan said.
The IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge will headline the action on Saturday, September 16, with a four-hour, bumper-to-bumper traffic jam of production-based race cars. The weekend also will include other IMSA-sanctioned single-make series to be announced later.
Looking forward, IMSA will return to the Racing Capital of the World in 2024 and 2025, as well, for longer endurance races. Fans who purchase race tickets or infield camping in 2023 will have first access to secure those spots for the 2024 IMSA endurance race.
