Over the weekend AutomotiveAddicts.com took a trip to Daytona Speedway to check out the practice and testing sessions leading up to the Rolex 24 Hour race. I have to say, we are truly excited and patently waiting for the Rolex 24 Hour race, which takes place in just a few weeks.
With the kickoff of the 52nd Rolex 24 at Daytona quickly approaching, we thought it would be a good time to start things off right in lower gear as we prep for a highly anticipated race between GRAND-AM Rolex Sport Car Series and the American Le Mans Series race cars. At the practice sessions we had sensory over-load as the roaring sounds of many re-worked Prototype and Grand Touring style cars left the garages to acclimate their fresh rubber with the familiar pavement of Daytona Speedway.
Some of the highlights during the test runs was us catching the all-new Corvette Stingray C7.R make its rounds on the road-course leading the decibel race alongside of Ferrari 458s, Aston Martin Vantage V8s, Porsche GT3s, Audi R8 V10s, Viper GTS-Rs, BMW M3s and 328i to name some of our favorites.
We look forward to some of our avid readers and fans attending the Rolex 24, which kicks off January 25th and lasting through the night into the morning for some magical and thrilling endurance racing.
