DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – When it comes to past success and high expectations, you’d be hard-pressed to find a more heralded group of teammates than the Acura Team Penske lineup for the Jan. 26-27 Rolex 24 At Daytona.

As it has done seamlessly in the past, the team has brought together a diverse and accomplished group of drivers to contend for the season-opening trophy in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship’s annual twice-around-the-clock event.

Staff Report IMSA Wire Service

It’s finally here.

Ten days from now, on Saturday, Jan. 26 at 2:30 p.m. ET, the green flag will fly over a 47-car field in the 57th running of the Rolex 24 At Daytona.

Zanardi Inspires Friends, Competitors and Fans with Infectious Personality, Will to Win


By Holly Cain IMSA Wire Service

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – In many ways, Alex Zanardi was as much rock star as race driver during his time at Daytona International Speedway last week preparing to compete in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship season-opening Rolex 24 At Daytona on Jan. 26-27.

And it wasn’t just race fans with love in their eyes, respect in their heart and an eagerness to interact with the former IndyCar champion as he made his way around the track.

Corvette Racing's Run for Fourth Straight GTLM Title, 100th IMSA Win Starts at Daytona


Staff Report IMSA Wire Service

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Last year, Corvette Racing’s No. 3 team fittingly scored the team’s third straight IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship GT Le Mans (GTLM) championship.

The team’s other Chevrolet Corvette C7.R carries No. 4. Can they keep the trend going?

As Tommy Milner – the co-driver of the No. 4 Corvette with Oliver Gavin, with whom he also shared the 2016 GTLM championship and a win that year in the Rolex 24 At Daytona – puts it, a strong result in the season opener definitely helps.

Michelin IMSA SportsCar Encore at Sebring International Raceway Set for 2019 Return


Competitors from around the world, racing door-to-door for four hours which resulted in close finishes were all highlights of last month’s inaugural Michelin IMSA SportsCar Encore.

The successes of the weekend were such that today IMSA, along with Michelin and Sebring International Raceway, is announcing the return of its second edition on Nov. 8-10, 2019.

“By all accounts, the inaugural Michelin Encore was fantastic,” IMSA CEO Ed Bennett said. “The event featured great racing, significant track time and served as an opportunity for newcomers to the IMSA paddock to see what Michelin, Sebring and IMSA are all about. We very much look forward to the 2019 event being bigger and better for all involved as we continue to further develop the concept.”

Staff Report IMSA Wire Service

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - Jarvis Unofficially Breaks 26-Year-Old Daytona Track Record in No. 77 Mazda DPi

“Drivers, start your engines” may be the most famous words in motorsports, but “And… it’s a new track record,” is pretty close behind.

And today at Daytona International Speedway, there was another – albeit unofficial – new track record. In the 15-minute IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship Daytona Prototype international (DPi) qualifying session for Rolex 24 At Daytona garage and pit selections, Oliver Jarvis drove the No. 77 Mazda Team Joest Mazda RT24-P to a lap of one minute, 33.398 seconds (137.212 mph).

2019 Roar Before The Rolex 24 At Daytona - Saturday Notebook


Staff Report IMSA Wire Service

- Speeds continued to climb on the second day of the Roar Before the Rolex 24 At Daytona under Chamber of Commerce weather conditions in front of a huge crowd at Daytona International Speedway.

Jonathan Bomarito ended Saturday atop the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship time charts by the slimmest of margins, posting a best lap of 1 minute, 34.533 seconds in the No. 55 Mazda Team Joest RT24-P Daytona Prototype international (DPi). Bomarito’s time, which came under the bright lights of the 3.56-mile circuit Saturday night, was just one-thousandth of a second quicker than Renger van der Zande’s lap of 1:34.534 in the No. 10 Konica Minolta Cadillac DPi-V.R from the afternoon session.

2019 Roar Before The Rolex 24 At Daytona - Friday Notebook


Staff Report IMSA Wire Service

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – The first day of on-track activity at the Roar Before the Rolex 24 At Daytona was a busy one, with practice sessions for the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship and IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge, in addition to practice and qualifying for the IMSA Prototype Challenge. The event continues through Sunday at Daytona International Speedway.

- Two-time CART champion Alex Zanardi is driving in his first Rolex 24 At Daytona this year in the No. 24 BMW Team RLL BMW M8 GTE in the GT Le Mans (GTLM) class. In addition to it being his first WeatherTech Championship experience, it will be his first race in North America since losing both legs in a Champ Car crash at EuroSpeedway Lausitz (Germany) in 2001.

“In life, it’s a question of opportunities, and I had this one, which is certainly one of the opportunities I would choose,” he said. “The Rolex 24 At Daytona has always been, the 24-hour race for me in my eyes. Being European, people would probably be used to believe that I would want to go to Le Mans, but in reality, I grew up as a race car driver here in America. I’ve always heard about this race many stories from many colleagues who were involved at some points with this great event. I always dreamed to be here. I’ve been around a long, long time and it’s almost off time right now, but luckily, before the last curtain came down, here I am involved with BMW with a works machine for RLL, and I’m very, very excited to be here.”
