2016 Official IMSA Spotter Guide


Latest Guide: Sahleen’s Six Hours of the Glen
Latest Update: 27 June 2016   – Note, I will be away for most of this week, so there will be no updates prior to evening of July 1st

Welcome to the 2016 Official Spotter Guide for the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship and IMSA Continental Tires SportsCar Challenge races at Watkins Glen, brought to you thanks to IMSA.

There are a number of new liveires for this event, many focusing on the forthcoming 4th July long weekend in the states including the exclusive reveal of the BMW Team RLL retro livery and the recently announced ‘787B’ Tribute liveries. Thanks to the many teams who forwarded me art on these liveries.

Watkins Glen BONUS


Thanks to commissions by IMSA and Lamborghini, EVERY race at the ‘6hrs of the Glen’ event will have its own Spotter Guide!

As a bonus, you can download a PDF containing all the guides or download the guides individually on the dedicated pages for the I Mazda Prototype Lites, Porsche GT3 Cup USA and GT3 Cup Canada and Lamborghini Super Trofeo championships.


This free download will be updated for each race A smaller file size version of this online guide will also be available at the official site, IMSA.com, on their Event Page

If you are at the event, Andy Blackmore Design and IMSA co-produce a Viewing guide (c15,000 per event) which includes a printed Spotter Guides (note, this does go to press 10-15 days before raceday, so not as up to date). which is normally available in the FanZone area.


A Season-long Spotter Guide T-Shirt is also available from the IMSA Merchandise units (to be followed by a poster from Lagua Seca)

Thanks to IMSA for partnering with the guide, and making it an official product for the eighth year. If you get a few seconds, please thank IMSA on Twitter. Without their support, there would be no guide. Massive thanks to the tens of thousands who have downloaded the guide or picked up one of the printed guides at the circuit.  Special thanks to all the teams who have helped with the guide this year.

Also thanks to the media outlets which promote the guides including RadioLeMans, IMSA Radio, DailySportscar and Sportscar365.

NOTE: Please fill free to share the guide on Social Media, but PLEASE LINK TO THIS PAGE and not the guide (as file names change with updates, particularly with the month change this week) so your friends and fans can download the latest version of the guide! I can also track data easier which in turn helps my quest for sponsorship

The next guide will be the 24Hours of Le Mans, which will feature a number of IMSA entrants including Michael Shank Racing, Corvette, Scuderia Corsa and Risi Competitizone.
