rolex 24 at daytona

rolex 24 at daytona

A furious early pace at the Rolex 24 at Daytona today led to a track covered in debris, a shakey start for the favourites and leading veteran drivers bemused as to why the teams got off to such a firey opening in the starting stage of the endurance race.

"Absolute madness," a bewildered Dario Franchitti said. "There's some aggressive driving out there, huh?" That was an understatement. The twice-around-the-clock race began in unusually warm temperatures at Daytona International Speedway, where drivers set a furious pace from the drop of the green flag Saturday. It created numerous spins, several accidents and overshadowed the early struggles of the heavily favored Chip Ganassi Racing teams. It also had many worried that the pace would only pick up once night fell.

So certainly a no holds barred opening to the Rolex 24 at Daytona and the event will be taking place all night until the small hours.
