ALTON, Virginia – IMSA and heads from VIRginia International Raceway have met to prepare a templated response to get fans from asking “why prototypes don’t race at VIR’s Michelin GT Challenge.” The response, which was approved on Tuesday afternoon, has already been sent over 400 times with repeat offenders losing their race day tickets.

“We didn’t want to have to get to this point, but here we are,” said VIR owner Connie Nyholm, “It’s just too much with these fans. Seriously stop. The event is literally called the GT CHALLENGE.”
