2020 Rolex 24 - Finally!
Thanks to the year that 2020 was, the Rolex 24 was the only auto racing event we were able to attend - we didn't even get to any airshows this year. I finally got through most of my photos from this year's Rolex. Unlike 2019, we had just about perfect weather for this year's race weekend.
1 - On Friday, they run a 4-hour race, the Michelin Pilot Challenge. It is an interesting mix of cars, from American muscle, to European sports cars, and Asian rockets.
2 - Over the past four or five years, we've gotten to know one of the Honda factory drivers, Ryan Eversley. He ran the 24 Hours a few years back with the HART Acura NSX, and this year he was driving the LA Honda World Civic Type R. His orange helmet makes it easy to spot when he's behind the wheel.
3 - Late in the race, he had a right front tire go down in the trioval, and managed to keep from hitting anything on the way back to the pits.
4 - On to the main event. The new Corvette C8.R made its debut at the Rolex.
5 - Corvettes running together in the infield section.
7 - Wax on, wax off...
8 - A pair of Acuras - Meyer Shank's NSX and a Penske DPi prototype.
9 - It's not the Rolex without the Ferris wheel!
11 - On the high banks at night.
12 -- The Penske prototypes after a night of racing.
13 - Wayne Taylor Racing Cadillac prototype takes the checkered flag after a long 24 hours of racing!
