IMSA in 1995 bans turbocharging for all GT-classified entries. Brix Racing with the Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme entry easily takes its maiden GTS putative constructors' title behind drivers' champion Irv Hoerr, who holds off Johnny O'Connell (Cunningham, Dibos) for the crown. Reputed film actor Paul Newman comes away with an overall GTS class victory with Roush Racing at Daytona in February. The Bugatti EB110 SC makes a rare North American appearance at Sears Point in July.

HeM applies the Putative Model to all racing seasons for two primary purposes: First, to effectively normalize all racing seasons for empirical comparison across the decades, and second, to step clear of series organizers which score season championships primarily out of commercial interest or to attract manufacturer participation. The Putative Model simply scores all seasons in the same fashion as a standard track and field meeting, with the only purpose of tracking what takes place at the finishing stripe If the Putative Champion differs from the nominal Series Champion, please note the (SC) notation below.
