2016 GTA Pro Am Points Chase

For the 2016 season the Global Time Attack will introduce the GTA Pro Am Points Chase. At each of the GTA Pro Am events teams will collect points towards an overall season championship. Four champions will be crowned in the Enthusiast, Street, Limited and Unlimited classes with custom one off GTA Trophies. One overall points winner from each Class. Points leaders win a custom trophy and a free entry to the North American time attack finals, the Global Time Attack Super Lap Battle at Buttonwillow Raceway Park November 10-11, 2016.

Rather than driver- or car-based titles the GTA Pro Am Points Chase will be contested between teams (like a constructor’s championship). Any team or individual that enters a 2016 GTA Pro Am Speed District event will be eligible to earn Pro Am Chase points*.

If after entering a 2016 GTA Pro Am event a team needs to substitute a driver or a car for a subsequent event entry the substitution must be submitted – with a valid reason – to the GTA staff via email to info@globaltimeattack.com no later than 48 hours before the first session of that event** in order to receive GTA Pro Am points.

Once a properly submitted substitution request has been received an independent panel of time attack team representatives selected by the GTA staff (across each of our three classes) will review it. Panel representatives whose teams have submitted a substitution request will be exempt in that particular instance. The Global Time Attack reserves the right to make the final decision in regards to any and all substitution requests.

The reason behind these substitution requests is to allow a team the opportunity to continue to contest the championship in the event that a catastrophic failure prompts a replacement car or if a driver is unable to compete for a valid reason. This will also prevent teams from engaging in any rental car or ringer driver loophole tactics that can manipulate a points system and invariably taint a championship.

The point breakdown for the 2016 GTA Pro Am Points Chase is listed below. The points for each of the four classes will be worth the same value.
