World Challenge Announces Final Two Venues to Complete 2011 Season

WC Vision and SCCA Pro Racing today announced the final two events that will showcase Sports Car Wars and complete the 12-race 2011 World Challenge GT, GTS and Touring Car Championships campaign: Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca (MRLS) and Road Atlanta.

Now in its 22nd consecutive year, North America’s top professional series for production-based sports cars will return to Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca and the famous corkscrew on Sept. 16-18. The series last raced at MRLS in 2009 and the 2011 event is scheduled along with the American Le Mans Series.

Then it’s off to Road Atlanta in Braselton, GA, Sept. 28-Oct. 1, as the World Challenge season finale will take place during the prestigious Petit Le Mans weekend, also with the American Le Mans Series. Later that same weekend, World Challenge will also host its season-ending awards banquet, officially crowning its GT, GTS and Touring Car Drivers’, Manufacturers’ and Team Champions.

The 12-race, eight-venue schedule will be televised on VERSUS (U.S. market only), with more details on the TV schedule to be announced soon. Additionally, fans can watch all of the races on world-challengetv.com.
