Off To A "Roaring" Start
  IMSA Season Kicks Off With Successful Weekend At Daytona

While the Roar Before The Rolex 24 At Daytona long has served as the unofficial “kick-off” to the racing season, the 2018 rendition held this past weekend had a different feel than it had in previous years.

 

Nasr Leads Cadillac DPi Sweep in Roar Qualifying
  1-2-3-4 for Cadillacs

The strong pace shown by Cadillac, which led every session throughout the first two days of the Roar Before The Rolex 24 At Daytona test, carried into Sunday’s inaugural Roar qualifying session. The new-for-2018 qualifying sessions establish the garage and pit locations each team will use during the Rolex 24 At Daytona race weekend on Jan. 25-28.

Scott Pruett to call it a career after 2018 Rolex 24
  By Holly Cain
Scott Pruett
Scott Pruett walked into the Daytona International Speedway media center and smiled widely as he looked at the Lexus banner hanging behind the podium displaying three cars he had driven in the Rolex 24 and honoring him for a “storied career in racing” that spanned five decades. Moments later, the 57-year old Pruett smiled again and calmly, thoughtfully, announced his retirement from the sport, revealing he will hang his helmet up after the upcoming Jan. 27-28 Rolex 24 At Daytona – the great sports car endurance race that Pruett has hoisted the overall victory trophy five times in an amazing career that’s spanned five decades.
IMSA 2018 Team-By-Team Preview: Prototype
  GT Preview coming soon

As the 2018 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship swings into action with this weekend’s Roar Before The Rolex 24, a busy offseason for teams and drivers has already begun to move into the rearview mirror. Here’s a quick, team-by-team look at what’s in store for each entry in the Prototype class:

United Autosports Head to USA For Roar Before The 24
  Will field 2 cars with six talented drivers
United Autosports will kick off their 2018 season this weekend with the ROAR before the 24 – the official test for the Rolex 24 at Daytona. The Anglo-American squad will be fielding two Ligier JS P217s in the 56th running of the 24-hour race in Florida, USA. Their driver line-up features some of the most famous names in motorsport as Fernando Alonso teams up with Lando Norris and Phil Hanson in the #23 car, while Bruno Senna and Paul Di Resta join United’s regular LMP2 racers, Will Owen and Hugo de Sadeleer in the #32 Ligier.
Making of a Champion: Antonio Garcia
  GTLM Corvette driver
It's widely considered that the three crown jewels in endurance sports car racing are the Rolex 24 At Daytona, the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring and the 24 Hours of Le Mans. The list of drivers who have won all three races over the course of their career is fairly short. Drivers who have won all three over the course of one year is even shorter. And then there’s Antonio Garcia, who in the span of one year (June 2008 to June 2009) won Le Mans twice, in addition to winning the Rolex 24 and Sebring. Oh, and he did it in three entirely different cars, taking Le Mans 2008 in an Aston Martin, the 2009 Rolex 24 in a Porsche-powered Riley Daytona Prototype, and both Sebring and Le Mans in 2009 in a Chevrolet Corvette C6R.
United Autosports Win In Abu Dhabi
  And Score Triple Podium At Final Event Of The Year

United Autosports have scored a triple podium at the Gulf 12 Hours, including a class win for Richard Meins, Shaun Lynn and Jim McGuire in the #23 Ligier JS P3. Johnny Mowlem, Bon Grimes and Tony Wells teamed up in the #22 Red River Sport Ligier JS P3, finishing second in the ProAm class. In GT Kessel Racing reigned victorious by taking their third win at the Gulf 12 Hours.

Castroneves, Montoya adapting to full-time IMSA status
  Indy Stars demoted to sports cars by Roger Penske
Helio Castroneves and Juan Pablo Montoya have accomplished many great things during their racing career. Castroneves is a three-time Indy 500 champion, 30-time IndyCar race winner and is a previous winner of Motul Petit Le Mans. Montoya owns two Indy 500 winner’s rings, an IndyCar championship, victories in Formula 1 and the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, and three Rolex 24 At Daytona wins. But the 2018 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship will be a new experience for both
Qualifying report 4 Hours of Fuji
  Round 2 - Asian Le Mans Series
Qualifying today was held in bitterly cold temperatures with an ambient temperature of just 6 degrees at the start of the session. Getting warmth into the Michelin tyros was going to be critical for these short 15-minute qualifying sessions. In the Asian Le Mans Series, qualifying is broken into two sessions, one for the prototypes and another for the GT cars.
Making of a Champion: James French
  Runaway pole leader too
James French
With 11 career Motul Pole Awards, James French is the all-time IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship leader, three more than Ricky Taylor, his next-closest competitor. French graduated from Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (AKA “IUPUI”) with a degree in motorsports engineering at the end of 2016. Prior to the 2017 WeatherTech Championship season, French never had won a race in the Prototype Challenge (PC) class. But that changed in a big, big way in 2017.
