The Sports Car Championship is the league's fourth to start major series. It is derived from the IMSA series concept and thus mirrors the usual IMSA weekend schedules, which contains a 10 minute Qualifying for both categories, followed by a race over various lengths. As variation though, it only features DPi and LMP3 cars.
