IMSA MICHELIN PILOT CHALLENGE SERIES

The Michelin Pilot Challenge is a grand touring and touring car racing series run by the International Motor Sports Association. Originating from the Canadian Motorola Cup, the series was taken over by Grand-Am in 2001 to become the Grand-Am Cup following the demise of rival IMSA's Firehawk series of similar rules in the US. KONI became a series sponsor for the start of the 2007 season when the series became known as the KONI Challenge Series, before renaming once more prior to the start of the 2009 season as the KONI SportsCar Challenge. The series name was once again changed for the 2010 season to Continental TireSports Car Challenge. In 2019, the series rebranded again after Michelin was selected to become the new official tire supplier of the series.

Race Face Brand Development was established to assist and train young auto racing drivers to create and promote their own unique brand. RFBD also is involved in the strategy to help young drivers reach the next steps in their racing careers by working with some of the top developmental programs in the country.
