IMCA Sport Compact

2017 IMCA Sport Compact national runner-up Mitch Meier

IMCA Sport Compact is IMCA's entry level class of racecars. They are found at IMCA tracks around the United States.

History

The series was formed in 2006, when six tracks ran the class.[1] A seventh track was added in 2007.[1]

Cars

IMCA Sport Compacts are three or four cylinder front-wheel drive compact cars.[2] The car's interior is gutted for safety and weight reduction.[2] Safety equipment such as a roll cage is installed.[2] A $1500 claim rule is in effect.[2]

Drivers

This division is designed for younger drivers, not those that want to get out of late models or modified racing. It's perfect for kids in high school, as there is a minimum age of 14.[2] No one in this division can be licensed to compete in any other IMCA division.[2]
