Rolex 24 at Daytona - January 2019
We made the trip down to Daytona for the Rolex 24 again,
1 - And they're off! Only 23 hours, 59 minutes, and 30 seconds to go!
2 - These teammates ran together most of the race:
3 - Meyer Shank Racing Acura NSX featured an all woman team of drivers.
4 - One of the neat things about IMSA Sports Car racing is the access you can get before, and even during, the race:
5 - One of the Penske Acura DPi prototypes.
6 - I love shooting glowing rotors!
7 - Alex Zanardi, former Formula 1driver and two-time Indy Car champ, raced this BMW GT car. Zanardi lost both legs in an Indy Car crash in 2001, and he raced this car using hand controls.
8 - On the high banks at night
9 - Sunday morning brought lots of rain. There were several yellow flag periods, and a couple of red flags that stopped racing because there was so much water on the track.
10 - Side by side in the rain!
11 - All that water sure helps demonstrate the way these cars move air when they are at speed.
