PRO (RED) & PRO-AM (GREEN) CLASS SYSTEM:
The Pro classes typically feature a professional driver line up while the Pro-Am classes pair a professional driver and amateur driver. To help fans easily identify a class of car, the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship implemented a new color system. A Pro class is designated by RED markings on the number panel, mirror, windscreen banner, rear wing end plate, class decal, and leader light. A Pro-Am class is designated by Green markings on the number panel, mirror, windscreen banner, rear wing end plate, class decal, and leader light.
Suggested Line: On

There is to be no adjusting the cars performance/transmission/drive-train/restrictors/wheels etc.
Always have a microphone when racing as communication is key, however, communication needs to be kept to a minimal mid race and spacial awareness needs to be considered.
Before the race commences, drivers will have the opportunity to take a formation lap around the track to heat up their tires, warm up their brakes, and get a final comfort level with themselves on the track. This will consist of keeping a two-car length between you and the driver in front. Speed limit’s cannot exceed anymore than 90mph, however it will be the leader of the grid leading the cars round if there is no safety car provided for the race. The leader of the pack is expected to sensibly set a good example for the other drivers as in the past formation laps can challenging for some more than others. If at any point you should fall behind, you may exceed your speed limit to catch back up to the pack. How ever, if you do find yourself falling behind and losing the pack, when catching back up to the pack you must not take your position back. You will be put at the back of the grid.
During the race, there may be a moment where the yellow flag is called. Drivers are expected to learn each sector of the track and call out if there is a yellow flag condition in place in that sector. Sometimes a safety car may need to be deployed in which case the whole circuit will be under yellow flag conditions. It is important to remember that it is crucial that drivers follow the rules of no over taking and the leader is to catch up to the safety car or lead the pack around. Drivers are to take this opportunity to enter the pits to fix any damage that they may have acquired through out the race, however when back on track must start from the back of the grid, if they are to fall that far back, otherwise, what ever position you come back out on track is the position you are to stay in until green flags are announced and confirmed and the safety car is safely in the pits. Two corners before the pits the leader is expected to take control of the pack and lead the other drivers throughout the final sector as the safety car will be coming back into the pits at this point. The safety-car can take as up to 3 laps pacing before coming back into the pits. When the safety car is in the pits, the leader is to then keep a steady formation going through out the pack and is not to call out to the pack when the green flag are waved as the leader has the control of when to get the race back underway, the leader however can not do this two corners before the pits and must do it reasonably (for example exit of final corner).
