Johnson: "It's Good to Be Back" in Continental Tire Challenge After Roar Before the Rolex 24 Injury


Staff Report IMSA Wire Service

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - With more than five months in the calendar year already passed, for many it seems the days have flown by.

For Michael Johnson, though, they’ve gone by slowly – painfully slowly.

Driving the No. 54 JDC-Miller Motorsports Audi RS3 LMS, Johnson and his co-driver Stephen Simpson planned to contest the full IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge season in the TCR class. Those plans changed during the Roar Before the Rolex 24 At Daytona test in early January.

Johnson – paralyzed from the waist down due to a motorcycle crash at 12 years old – was behind the wheel of the No. 54 during one of the Roar’s practice sessions when the car catapulted into the Turn 1 wall as he came onto the oval from the infield road course. As a result of the impact, Johnson suffered a broken right tibia and fibula.

Johnson’s injuries and the team’s preparations for a second car kept the JDC-Miller Motorsports team away from the Continental Tire Challenge paddock, but not for long.

Plenty to Celebrate for Porsche at Nurburgring 24 Between Victory and New Car Launch


Staff Report IMSA Wire Service

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Even before the prestigious 24 Hours of Nürburgring got under way last Saturday at the legendary German circuit, Porsche had cause for celebration.

On Friday, the manufacturer introduced the next-generation Porsche 911 GT3 R to the world. This car will make its competition debut in the 2019 Rolex 24 At Daytona as Porsche’s new offering for competitors in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship GT Daytona (GTD) class.

The rear-engine race car will be powered by a normally aspirated, four-liter, flat six-cylinder engine capable of producing up to 550 horsepower. Porsche noted that the engine is nearly identical to the powerplant used in its road-legal 911 GT3 RS production vehicle.

The manufacturer paid particular attention to aerodynamic refinements on the new 911 GT3 R, as well as optimization of safety features and lowered costs for servicing and spare parts. The new car already is available to be ordered, with deliveries anticipated in December 2018.
