NBC Sports: 36 SprintX Cars, Lineups Pack Variety, Diversity at VIR

No less than 36 cars are set to compete in the first of five Pirelli World Challenge SprintX weekends, this weekend at VIRginia International Raceway.

Breaking down those 36 cars, they’re split this way:

12 GT Pro/Pro
16 GT Pro/Am
1 GT Am/Am
1 GT Cup Pro/Am
1 GT Cup Am/Am
2 GTS Pro/Am
3 GTS Am/Am

And that’s before you get to the rest of the entry list: GTS: 9; GTSA: 10; TC: 32; TCA: 15; TCB: 8.

In sports car racing, the easiest way to get hooked is to embrace the variety and diversity of machinery first and ask questions about how complex it is later.

So with that in mind, here’s a breakdown of the GT SprintX entries (which themselves are split between three classes, but we’ll set that aside for a minute) and their respective lineups.
