Spirit of Daytona Racing Bringing Corvette DP to Goodwood

With races at the Daytona International Speedway, Watkins Glen, and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Spirit of Daytona Racing will compete at some of the most famous tracks in the continent this season.

But that reach won’t be limited to North America as the team has been invited to bring the No. 90 VISITFLORIDA.com Corvette Daytona Prototype machine to the prestigious Goodwood Festival of Speed in England on July 12-14, 2013.

The Corvette DP, which debuted in Spirit of Daytona Racing colors ahead of the 2012 Rolex 24 at Daytona, was first ushered into Victory Lane by the team at Barber Motorsports Park last April. The Goodwood appearance marks the first for a Corvette DP at the 2013 event, which marks the 20th iteration of the Festival.

The Goodwood weekend, which is staged at the fabled Goodwood House, traditionally produces a rich pageantry of automotive culture and history brought to life as well as marking the debuts for several prototype and concept machines as the automotive world turns its focus to one of the most celebrated hillclimbs on the planet.

The Corvette DP machine will proudly carry the VISITFLORIDA.com livery, and will welcome some new as well as familiar drivers. Sonny Whalen, GoPro founder Nick Woodman, and Spirit of Daytona Racing pilot Ricky Taylor will each get the opportunity of a lifetime behind the wheel of the Corvette DP as part of the weekend program.

“I’m very proud to have been invited to represent Chevrolet and GRAND-AM at Goodwood,” said team owner Troy Flis. “We’ve been to the event before, supporting the first time a Daytona Prototype went up the hill, and it really is something special. So to get to go over there with the same VISITFLORIDA.com car that we’ve won with is really exciting. Goodwood is the kind of event that is heaven for car guys, so we can’t wait for the weekend.”
