Just after the first race of the 2024 season and on the eve of the Sebring 12 Hours, IMSA President John Doonan unveiled the schedule for the following year, which also includes the Pilot Challenge.

The 2025 season will once again consist of 11 races, featuring five endurance rounds forming the Endurance Cup.

Expressing pride, Doonan credited the early release of the schedule to collaborative efforts with promoter partners. He emphasized the importance of providing fans, competitors, and partners ample time for planning, even with much of the ongoing 2024 season yet to unfold.

As customary, the season will kick off with the iconic Daytona 24 Hours from January 23-26, preceded by the Roar Before the 24 on January 17-19.

A pilgrimage to Sebring International Raceway for the 12-hour endurance race is scheduled for March 12-15. Both Daytona and Sebring events will feature all four SportsCar Championship classes: Grand Touring Prototype (GTP), Le Mans Prototype 2 (LMP2), Grand Touring Daytona Pro (GTD Pro), and Grand Touring Daytona (GTD).

GTP and GTD will then venture west for a 100-minute showdown on the Streets of Long Beach on April 11-12. Following this, on May 9-11, GTD Pro will join GTP and GTD for a two-hour, 40-minute battle at Laguna Seca.

The series will return to the downtown streets of Detroit for another 100-minute contest as part of the Detroit Grand Prix on May 30-31, showcasing GTP and GTD Pro classes.

A six-hour endurance test at Watkins Glen awaits in its customary late June slot, with all classes participating from June 26-29.

LMP2, GTD Pro, and GTD classes will be showcased at Mosport from July 11-13 in the series’ lone Canadian trip.

All four classes will reunite at Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin, from July 31 to August 3 for the annual visit.

Virginia International Raceway will host the lone GT-only race, featuring GTD Pro and GTD classes on August 22-24.

Indianapolis Motor Speedway will again host the penultimate rounds of both the SportsCar Championship and Endurance Cup with the Battle on the Bricks six-hour race scheduled for September 19-21.

The season finale will once again take place at Road Atlanta, slated for October 8-11 for the prestigious 10-hour classic Petit Le Mans.
