ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (March 13, 2016) -- WC Vision LL, producers of the Pirelli World Challenge, today announced a multi-year extension agreement with the Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) Pro Racing division to continue as the sanctioning body for North America’s most popular sports car production-based series.

Now in its 27th year, Pirelli World Challenge enjoyed one of its most successful and competitive seasons in 2015 with seven different auto manufacturers finishing in the top seven driver point positions (Cadillac, Ferrari, Porsche, Nissan, McLaren, Acura and Audi) in the GT division led by Johnny O’Connell’s fourth consecutive championship for Cadillac Racing.

In addition, PWC features six other categories throughout its 11-weekend season with GTA, GT Cup, GTS, TC, TCA and TC-B Spec classes.

SCCA Pro Racing Ltd., wholly owned subsidiary of Sports Car Club of America, Inc. - a 60,000-member organization dedicated to motorsports events. SCCA Pro Racing provides full-service organization, operation and sanction for numerous professional racing series, documented within this web site. Known for its operational expertise, SCCA Pro Racing has been the choice of privately-owned racing series, as well as those promoted by automobile manufacturers, to conduct all facets of their championships.

“I am pleased to announce a multi-year extension with our many year relationship with SCCA Pro Racing,” said Greg Gill, president and CEO of WC Vision. “We have watched the changes in the club and continued growth and we couldn’t be happier with this alliance. We look forward to a many year association.

“This is obviously good news for SCCA to be extending our agreement with the Pirelli World Challenge,” said Derrick Walker, president of SCCA Pro Racing. “I think the series is the right format. It is an exciting format with a lot of great competitors in the series. SCCA is so glad to be a part of it. We’re looking forward to the future with PWC.”

Pirelli World Challenge, which features an exciting 50-minute sprint race format, provides teams, manufacturers and aftermarket suppliers a competitive production-based race series in which to prove their products in 11 weekends starting in March and concluding in October.
