There’s still plenty of time before the WEC and ELMS seasons commence but over in the US the IMSA Weathertech Sportscar Championship gets underway this weekend. Round one is the gruelling but prestigious Rolex 24 hours of Daytona, Florida.
This year’s prototype class split (Daytona Prototype International and Le Mans Prototype 2) means there are now four LMP2 entries for the Daytona 24 hours, all of which are powered by GK428 V8 Gibson engines. Gibson engine track support will be at Daytona to assist the teams; DragonSpeed (2 car team), Performance Tech Motorsports and PR1 Mathiasen.
Practice and qualifying take place during Thurs 24th and Fri 25th January. The Rolex 24 hours of Daytona starts at 7.35pm (GMT) on Sat 26th January.
