The SCCA has announced the addition of a new class to the 2020 Summit Racing Equipment Road Racing program that will include vintage GTP and Camel Lights cars, as well as Le Mans Prototypes.
The new SCCA car class added by the CRB for 2020 is named Prototype X (PX) and will also be deployed at all SCCA Road Racing Regional, U.S. Majors Tour and Hoosier Racing Tire Super Tour events. Similar to the GT-X class created in 2019, PX is open to various prototype vehicles that have been competing in U.S. road racing over the past several years. Deanna Flanagan, SCCA’s Road Racing Director, said examples include Daytona Prototype and Le Mans Prototype cars, as well as older IMSA GTP and Camel Light racecars. Eligible cars will include:
- Daytona Prototype Gen #1 (2003-2007):
- Daytona Prototype Gen #2 (2008-2011):
- Daytona Prototype Gen #3 (2012-2016):
- Daytona Prototype International (2017-Present):
- IMSA GTP (1981-1995)
- IMSA Camel Light (1985-1993)
- Le Mans Prototype 1 (1999-2013)
- Le Mans Prototype 2 (1999-Present)
- Le Mans Prototype 3 (2017-Present)
- Le Mans Prototype Challenge (2009-2018)
- World Sports Car (1994-1998)
“Across the country there are a number of competition-ready cars, now privately owned, that fall within SCCA’s new Prototype X classification,” Flanagan said. “The idea behind creation of Prototype X is to provide a way for these beautiful machines to participate at SCCA road races. It’s another way SCCA makes itself accessible to motorsports enthusiasts who love to have fun with cars.”
The new PX class will not be Runoffs-eligible in 2020.
