To mark the beginning of Daytona Speedweeks, the world’s fastest drivers and cars came to Florida. The cool and clear weather made for a perfect weekend and Cadillac dominated the Rolex 24 at Daytona.
Racing twice around the clock for a priceless Rolex watch, we congratulate Team Konica Minolta in their Cadillac DPi. Finishing 1st, they also ran the race’s fastest lap, ad 1:34.652. Leading the way to victory lane, Mustang Sampling/ JDC MotorSports took 3rd and 5th place.
Whelen Engineering crossed the line in 7th place, with all drivers thankful for their Cadillac DPi cars. This is a testament to the 6.2L V8 found in the CTS-V, Camaro ZL1, and the previous-generations of Corvette.
This was Team Corvette’s first outing with the mid-engine 2020 Corvette C8, and its new 5.5L Dual Overhead Cam V8. They finished 4th and 7th respectively in the GTLM class. First place in GTLM was the new BMW M8 GTE by BMW Team RLL. 2nd and 3rd were Porsche 911 RSRs, fielded by the factory Porsche GT Team.
GT Daytona class was won by Paul Miller Racing in a Lamborghini Huracan GT3 from Paul Miller Racing. Runner up was another Huracan from GRT Magnus.
