IMSA Weathertech 2017 | Pilot Episode

Judging by the size of the crowd, the lack of space in the camping areas and the excitement on the track the 55th running of the Rolex 24 at Daytona International Speedway can be described as a success. I am blessed to be able to follow along for the ride trackside and capture moments inside these amazing events. The 55th running, albeit with changing weather, was excitement in all aspects of the race. Cannot wait for Sebring and now the 56th running at Daytona in 2018!

They say pictures are worth a thousand words and needing a nap after a grueling 24 Hours race... enjoy the photos!

Fresh from Florida

In 2017 I am going to work on keeping fresh images and stories coming from the travels of the the season. 2017 kicked off with a bang at the Roar Before the 24 with so much new machinery the excitement was high and the motorsports world was once again looking to Daytona.

Multiple manufacturers had new cars but Prototype and GTD look to steal the show in 2017 with the entire Prototype category featuring a new look and GTD has seen an infusion of new cars as well as international entrants with the change of rules for the class.

Weather was interesting with a cloudy but great day on Friday that turned into rain overnight and much colder temps. Not cold enough to snow but hovering just above. Many teams chose to wait it out and once it dried up Saturday and Sunday the Prototype class put on a show via the time sheets. The spread is very small and looks to be a great race. Enjoy some images from the 3 day test.
