IMSA, Rolex 24 Champion Lally Relives 2011 Daytona 500 Appearance


Staff Report IMSA Wire Service

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – The record book shows that Andy Lally finished 33rd in his one and only Daytona 500 start back in 2011. And it was one of the best days of his life.

“It’s the best time I’ve ever had being completely miserable,” Lally says. “It sounds odd to say, but it’s the thing that I’ve wanted to do the most in my life. It’s the biggest race that I’ve ever had a desire to do. It was a childhood dream come true to walk out on pit lane that day and see my car sitting on the grid of the Daytona 500.

“I am very rarely ever nervous or overexcited in a race, and I had butterflies before pulling off pit lane. When we were four-wide going down the back straightaway on Lap 2, I think I experienced the highest adrenaline rush of my entire life.”
That’s saying something.

Lally is a five-time class winner in the Rolex 24 At Daytona and a two-time IMSA champion. He’s also a former street luge champion who these days spends time when he’s not at a racetrack either navigating skate parks or on a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu mat.

It was shortly after Lally’s third Rolex 24 victory when he learned he’d be returning to Daytona for his first attempt at the Daytona 500. He would be driving the No. 71 TRG Chevrolet.

Staff Report IMSA Wire Service

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. –Bryan Sellers was looking for a jeweler in victory lane at the 2020 Rolex 24 At Daytona to size a hard-earned timepiece to fit his wrist.

The co-driver of the No. 48 Paul Miller Racing Lamborghini had just received his Rolex Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona for winning the GT Daytona (GTD) class, but Sellers would have to wait until he got back home for the fitting.

The watch hasn’t been hard to find since then.

Glickenhaus Prepares for Le Mans and the WEC


When the ACO and the FIA published regulations to establish a new top class of endurance racing, SCG saw a magical opportunity. We could build a beautiful sports car to race in the top class of the WEC and at Le Mans.

The sleek and highly competitive Hypercars would usher in a new era in motorsports, where small manufacturers like SCG would be able to fight the big guys for an overall win on La Sarthe circuit.

We have brought together a world class team to rise to this challenge who are top veterans of F1 and LMP1 racing. We started with a blank sheet of paper and our design team lead by Michael Young and Jim Glickenhaus created the design.

Rahal Still Relishing Total Team Effort Toward Second Straight Rolex 24 At Daytona Victory


Staff Report IMSA Wire Service

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – It was the most intense battle in the 2020 Rolex 24 At Daytona, and it went on for hours.

In one corner, you had the No. 24 BMW Team RLL M8 GTE shared by John Edwards, Jesse Krohn, Augusto Farfus and Chazz Mostert. In the other, it was a Porsche GT Team “tag-team” with Earl Bamber, Laurens Vanthoor and Mathieu Jaminet in the No. 912 Porsche 911 RSR and Nick Tandy, Frederic Makowiecki and Matt Campbell in the team’s No. 911 entry.

Those three cars fought tooth-and-nail for GT Le Mans (GTLM) class supremacy all night long, and really, right up to the checkered flag.

Kristensen Named SuperSebring Grand Marshal


Staff Report IMSA Wire Service

One of the greatest names in the history of international sports car racing, Tom Kristensen, has today been named as Grand Marshal for SuperSebring.

The record-breaking Dane will wave the green flag for both the FIA World Endurance Championship’s 1000 Miles of Sebring on Friday, March 20, and the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship’s headline 68th Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring Presented by Advance Auto Parts on Saturday, March 21.

“It’s a great honor to be named Grand Marshal for both events and I can’t wait to be back at Sebring,” Kristensen said. “The particular challenges of this historic track are still clear in my mind, and the event always has such fantastic competitors and fans! I consider myself very lucky to have won the 12-hour race seven times and have so many great memories of incredible battles over the years. You have to be tough to win at Sebring – both the car and the driver – and the slogan “Respect the bumps” is one of the truest in all motorsport.”
