GTD teams now know what they can bring to the Roar before the 24 test at Daytona this coming weekend.

IMSA has released its regulations for the GT-Daytona class of the upcoming TUDOR United SportsCar Championship.

A maximum engine displacement of a whopping 8.5 liters for non-turbo charged powerplants, and 4 liters for turbocharged engines are permitted under the regulations. There will also be a minimum of 1215 kg across the entire class.

Some of the notable regulations is the exclusion of driver aids, being stability and traction control and anti-lock brakes.

In an effort to include as many GT models available on the market, IMSA has allowed the minutely smaller roll cages installed on FIA-approved chassis.

The McLaren MP4-12C may be able to make its North American debut, as these regulations include carbon chassis vehicles.

All cars will run the IMSA specific rear wing.

The final version of the regulations is expected to be handed out to teams after the upcoming Roar before the 24, which takes place this coming weekend.

IMSA will be able to balance the performance of the class using engine restrictors, fuel capacity, rear wing height and minimum weight.
