The 52nd annual Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona is underway on Fox, representing the first race of the inaugeral Tudor United SportsCar Championship season. Up front in the Daytona Prototype Class is all Corvette, just as it was with the Rolex Grand Am Series. In the GT Le Mans class, however, it’s a different story.
Oliver Gavin qualified fourth in the GT Le Mans class with the No. 4 Corvette C7.R, but the No. 3 car driven by Jan Magnussen experienced electrical and throttle issues on the qualifying run, sidelining the car, and putting it in the back of the pack. That said, Antonio Garcia, Magnussen’s teammate along with Ryan Briscoe, set the class’s fastest time in that morning practice before the car acted up. SRT Motorsports qualified fasted in the GTLM class overall, set by Mark Goossens in the No. 91 SRT Viper GTS-R.
Television coverage of the Rolex 24 At Daytona will be available on the FOX family of channels, starting with the FOX network’s two-hour broadcast at 2 p.m. The race also will air on FOX Sports 1 and FOX Sports 2, along with overnight streaming video at imsa.com
