|TUDOR United SportsCar Championship Info
This series features endurance racing where cars race anywhere from 2 to
24 hours. Two drivers are required for every race, with three to five drivers
used in the endurance races at Daytona International Speedway, Sebring
International Raceway, Watkins Glen International and Road Atlanta.
Features two styles of cars, Prototype and GT (Grand Touring).
Each style of car has two classes, Pro and Pro-Am. All four classes race on
the track together, each with their own battle for the lead.
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, 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 BLUE markings on the number panel, mirror,
windscreen banner, rear wing end plate, class decal, and leader light.
The Leader Light System allows fans to easily identify the position of each car in
its respective class. The position of the car is displayed on an LED panel
mounted on the side of the car near the rear.
The color of the LED number corresponds with the red (Pro) and blue (Pro-Am)
colors utilized in both the Prototype and GT style of cars. For instance, a red No.
5 LED number on a GT style car means that car is in 5th position in the GTLM
