I plan on using this thread to show off the sparce yet many releases of IMSA in 1/64 scale.

This thread will also include cars from the 4 historic races in America: 24 Hours of Daytona, 12 Hours of Sebring, 6 Hours @ The Glen, and Petite LeMans.

So here it is, WEC(1953-1992), IMSA, USRRC (1998), and Grand-Am all in one "El Camino" Kingsley style thread!

As I post, it'll be broken into eras.
WEC: 1950s-1970s
IMSA/Sportscar & USRRC: 1970s-1990s
ALMS: 1998-2013
Grand-Am: 2000-2013
IMSA United Sportscar: 2014-present

American LeMans Series from 1999-2013

The inaugural 1999 ALMS season featured the Grand Touring Prototype, err LeMans Prototype, uhhh Prototype class. They couldn't stick with a name that year. Which consisted of the World Sports Car, LeMans Prototype, and Grand Touring 1 cars.

This car is a unique race win, as it won both the inaugural and final race at RFK Park in Washington, D.C. The race was originally contracted for 10 years but was cancelled after one running due to noise complaints in the area.

One of the first, if not THE first ever Corvette Racing 1/64 ever released, this is a replica of the car they won in class with in the 2002 season opening 12 Hours of Sebring. The car from GMP features and opening hood and was also released in a 3-pack with the sister car and a team hauler.
