The Pirelli World Challenge Championships ... This is How Racing Should Be!
The Pirelli World Challenge is North America's top production car-based racing championship. Divided into four separate classes (Pirelli World Challenge GT, Pirelli World Challenge GTS, Pirelli World Challenge Touring Car and Pirelli World Challenge Touring Car B-Spec) races follow a sprint format and are a maximum 50 minutes start to finish.
