The Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona was this weekend. It was 24 hours of strong racing action, good weather, and relatively predictable winners. Wayne Taylor Racing continues to kick butt. The team won its third Daytona race in the last four years. The winning #10 Cadillac DPi race car was piloted by Kamui Kobayshi, Regner van der Zande, Scott Dixon, and Ryan Briscoe.
The other classes were won by an LMP2 Oreca, GTLM BMW M8 GTE, and a Lamborghini Huracan GT3 in the GTD class.
There was an early on-track incident between an Acura and Mazda, but both cars wound up back in the race. Aston Martin wasn’t so lucky, as its entries couldn’t complete the event. Even though the Mazda team didn’t win, it did produce a best-ever second-place finish at Daytona. The DPi cars from the Japanese automaker are getting better with every event. The drivers put the car on pole this year, and then finished not far behind Wayne Taylor’s Caddy.
