Pirelli World Challenge President and CEO Greg Gill has reaffirmed the future of SprintX, indicating that tweaks to the race length and format are in the works for 2018.

The 60-minute two-driver format, first introduced in 2016, has seen considerable growth this year, with 30-plus car grids for the majority of the events, which have been integrated into the overall PWC championship.

Gill said he sees the concept moving forward next year, with the likely addition of mandatory tire changes and potentially longer races that would require refueling.
