Top-line racing is about to resume with the 2013 Rolex 24 Hours Of Daytona. Here is a link to the most convenient and complete info I could find on the web, and here is the link to the official Gran-Am site, which will have live timing and scoring. Let the games begin!

Stupid question from someone who watches 2, count 'em 2, sports car races a year.

Wasn't there supposed to be a mix of ALMS and Daytona Prototypes competing against each other in Grand Am?
Or is all that next year?

Is Rubens confirmed? That is good news. He will probably be spending some time in FL with the Montoya family.

Next year. And it won't be called Grand-Am anymore by then.

Practice 2 just ended, glad that Radio Le Mans received rights to cover the event after all. They will provide commentary for today's quali sessions and (hopefully) night practice too.

He was confirmed ages ago and yes he's driving the 911 Cup car.

Unfortunately the Corvette DPs were too fast during pre-season testing again, so Grand-Am has issued BoP penalties for them... :well:

Why do they need 5 drivers for the race? So they can push at maximum?

It's basically pointless but allows more (rich) amateur drivers to join = better funding for teams

Who's everyone rooting for?

Always keen to see the Brumos boys do well, although I'd have liked to have seen Hurley Haywood back in there.
Mike Shank's outfit looks strong to defend their title. Ambrose will be a weapon for these guys.
And I like the lineup of Fittipaldi, Piquet and Nasr for Action Express.

Shame no current F1 guys are taking part. I know Webber is interested in endurance racing, and plans to race "one day with Porsche".

Spirit of Daytona in DP

Not too surprised by the lack of pace of the DP Corvettes due to the adjustment... shame

I have mixed feeling about this. He was a one man demolition derby in Grand-Am last year. Frankly I wouldn't be surprised if the regular drivers don't ask the officials to give him a warning before the race.

Go Piquet jr.!

He is already carrying a BoP penalty*, so I don't expect him to be as competitive anyway.

Have they announced something because its not 24 hours on the Sky schedule?

Maybe it's all the stuff they can show live properly apart from the bits of the race, if its the same as last year where there was just one bloke filming the whole thing!

Unlike other series, they're allowed to drive in both and get classified in both. Which is unfair to every championship competitor except Pruett.

No, his team parted ways with Mazda over the winter.

Don't think he'll be running the LMP2 car this year, it was intended to be run with the Mazda diesel engine in the slow tubeframe 6 that's running around in GX. Right now they have a LMPC car and have put an entry in for Le Mans (but more likely in GTE-Am).

It's on from 8ish till around 4am then a break until 2pm then from there till the finish.

There'll probably be a stream of sorts if you want to watch the whole thing plus RLM will cover the whole thing I guess.

Post-qualifying BoP break (after the penalties they received after pre-season testing) for the Corvette DPs:
Air restrictor +0,05 inches (+2,7%)

Also +100 rpm for them and -300rpm for DPs with Ford powerplant

NASCAR on roll again
