Or generally any series with title sponsorship. But in this case it is harder because Blancpain has been onboard since its inception and "SRO" has not often been used in this context.

This problem is probably a big reason why IMSA revived the IMSA name after the initial confusion with the name (United...Tudor...Weathertech).
