By Christopher DeHarde, Staff Writer SEBRING, Fla. — The opening day of practice for the 2019 Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring was great for some and not so great for others but three sessions have given us a better idea of who the favorites are ahead of Saturday’s endurance classic. At least, in most classes, it has. In Daytona Prototype International (DPi), six cars managed to place themselves in the top five multiple times across all three sessions with the No. 31 Cadillac DPi entry from Action Express Racing appearingRead More
By Christopher DeHarde, Staff Writer The 67th Annual Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring has a special position on the world motorsport stage this coming weekend with the added race for the FIA World Endurance Championship on Friday afternoon.

By IMSA Wire Service DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (Jan. 24, 2019) – No other manufacturer has had more success at Daytona International Speedway – and the Rolex 24 At Daytona in particular – than Porsche. And when the green flag flies Saturday at 2:35 p.m. ET (live NBCSN coverage begins at 2 p.m. ET), it’ll be a Porsche leading the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship GT field to the green flag. Thanks to a record-setting run by Nick Tandy on Thursday, the manufacturer will go for a 70th Rolex 24 class winRead More
By Christopher DeHarde, Staff Writer The 2019 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship kicks off with the Rolex 24 at Daytona and the GT classes have very few changes compared to their prototype counterparts. Michelin is the sole tire supplier in the WeatherTech Championship and while this doesn’t change anything in the GT Le Mans (GTLM) class, the GT Daytona (GTD) class is changing after being on Continental since the sports car racing merger of 2014. GTLM cars are based on the GTE platform that runs in the FIA World Endurance Championship andRead More

The team’s other Chevrolet Corvette C7.R carries No. 4. Can they keep the trend going? As Tommy Milner – the co-driver of the No. 4 Corvette with Oliver Gavin, with whom he also shared the 2016 GTLM championship and a win that year in the Rolex 24 At Daytona – puts it, a strong result in the season opener definitelyRead More
By IMSA Wire Service DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Jarvis Unofficially Breaks 26-Year-Old Daytona Track Record in No. 77 Mazda DPi “Drivers, start your engines” may be the most famous words in motorsports, but “And… it’s a new track record,” is pretty close behind. And today at Daytona International Speedway, there was another – albeit unofficial – new track record. In the 15-minute IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship Daytona Prototype international (DPi) qualifying session for Rolex 24 At Daytona garage and pit selections, Oliver Jarvis drove the No. 77 Mazda Team JoestRead More
By IMSA Wire Service DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Following last month’s announcement of the 47-car entry list for this weekend’s Roar Before the Rolex 24 At Daytona, more than 150 drivers were unveiled in an updated entry list today to participate in this weekend’s annual three-day test session for the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship. “The Roar” as it’s become known over the past several years, serves as the kick off to the upcoming season.
