Steven Cole Smith, IMSA Wire Service

Fifty-five IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship entries take to the grid in, coincidentally, the 55th edition of the Rolex 24 At Daytona. There are four classes, two of them Prototype and Prototype Challenge, both populated by purpose-built race cars that resemble street cars only in passing.

The other two classes are both GT - that stands for "Grand Touring" or "Gran Turismo," in Italian. There are 11 GT Le Mans entries, which are primarily factory-supported. And there are 27 GT Daytona entries, the largest class in the field. Both GT Daytona and GT Le Mans cars are based on production cars, so GT competitors look very much like the street-going models they are based on.

We’ll take a look at the GT field today, and tomorrow, we’ll preview the Prototypes.
