    Pirelli World Challenge has announced their exciting 2016 schedule with eleven racing weekends set at legendary race facilities and events.

    The 2016 season will mark the 27th year for one of the world’s most competitive and entertaining sedan racing campaigns.

    All classes will compete on Canadian Tire Motorsport Park’s historic 3.957 km grand prix circuit as part of the Victoria Day SpeedFest Weekend, May 19-22.

    Five of the Pirelli World Challenge 2016 events will serve as headliner weekends for the PWC seven classes – GT, GTA, GT Cup presented by MOMO, GTS, Touring Car, TCA and TCB – which saw more than 100 entries at many of North America’s historic race tracks in 2015.

    On Saturday, September 12, the WC Vision board voted unanimously to accept the resignation of Scott Bove as CEO and have appointed Greg Gill interim CEO until a suitable replacement can be found.

    “In 2015, the Pirelli World Challenge brought outstanding competition and variety to the North American motorsports landscape,” said Greg Gill, general manager and interim CEO of WC Vision.

    “In 2016, the PWC schedule again should provide the racing fans at many of the world’s most iconic road racing venues with over 20 auto manufacturers in action. I want to thank the eleven racing facilities for their hospitality in hosting the 2016 Pirelli World Challenge events.”
