At Lime Rock, the Pirelli World Challenge – tremendous, no-pit-stops sprint racing – features all eight PWC classes: GT, GTA, GTS, GT Cup, SprintX, plus the three Touring Car classes – TC, TCA and TCB. GT is where manufacturers such as Cadillac, Acura, Bentley, Audi, McLaren, Ferrari, Nissan, Porsche and Mercedes-Benz all come to play. Many teams in the GT and GTS classes will also compete in two 60-minute "SprintX" races, with racing duties shared by two drivers


PWC is a veritable hotbed of production- and production-based classes. The big dog division is GT, where the biggest, baddest racing machines from Audi, Cadillac, Aston Martin, Bentley, BMW, Acura, Nissan, Lamborghini, Porsche, Ferrari, Viper, Mercedes and McLaren bare their fangs in frantic one hour showdowns.

The GTS division features a lot of the same manufacturers as GT, but the cars are closer to street spec. Don’t be fooled – the races for GTS honors are just as crazy – and it’s where Kia, Hyundai, Subaru and Scion choose to do battle with Camaros, Mustangs, Porsches, Audis, Astons and Nissans. 

The GT Cup class is comprised of all Porsche 911s, the cars nearly identical to the 911s in the hugely popular Porsche CT3 Cup series that supports many Formula 1 races around the globe.

In TC, it's about Mustangs, BMW 128s, Mazdaspeed 3s, Miatas, Kia Fortes, certain Porsche Caymans, Nissan Altimas and certain 370Zs, Mini JCWs, Hyundai Genesi, Honda Accords, VW Golfs/Jettas and Volvo C30s.

The TCA class is comprised of : Honda Civics and Fits, Kia Koups, Mazda Miatas and RX8s, Mini Cooper S's, Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZs.

In TCB you'll see Chevy Sonics, Fiat 500s, Mazda 2s, Kia Rios and certain Honda Fits and Minis.
