A landmark merger of GRAND-AM Road Racing and the American Le Mans Series (ALMS) was unveiled today at Daytona International Speedway and will include the International Motor Sports Association (IMSA), which sanctions ALMS events; the Road Atlanta race track facility, the Chateau Elan Hotel and Conference Center in Sebring and the Sebring International Raceway.

Both sanctioning bodies will continue to operate separate schedules in 2013 before racing under one banner in 2014 beginning with North America’s premier sports car race, the 52nd annual Rolex 24 At Daytona. We think this can only help sportscar racing as Le Mans Prototypes are getting scarce on the ALMS grids and the two GT classes will merge into one very solid and spectacular grid.
