The IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge features showroom-available GT4 and stock production cars with minor racing modifications. This is the series where you can see McLarens and Miatas racing side by side . But the Miatas were the big story line this weekend. McLaren's new 570S GT4 has been building excitement and at COTA, they claimed their first victory in the IMSA series. The NewChevrolet Camaro GT4.R  also caused a stir with the Chevy faithful.  And it's not just a looker. It turned in a solid performance with a 5th overall finish.
