In many ways, it is America's Le Mans (sorry Petit...). Everybody racing in the States with a new car can't wait to debut it on the tri-oval. That's because, much like La Sarthe, Daytona's road race configuration showcases both speed and agility, while going sunrise-to-set-to-rise again proves that the car can go the distance. It is the perfect test for race cars, old and new, and sets the tone for the rest of the North American season.
As BMW, Ford, and most of the GTD field in the Weathertech Sportscar Championship gear up for the season in their new cars, we want to share some motivation for their teams, and for any of our readers who are embarking on new adventures in 2016. Block out an hour, and watch one of the best success stories in recent times: Porsche's return to Le Mans.
