Rolex 24 at Daytona 2018
The Rolex 24 at Daytona is one of the world’s best known 24-hour races. It takes place every January at the Daytona International Speedway in Florida, with the race acting as the first round of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship.
For the 2018 running, the official test – the ROAR before the 24 – will be held on 5-7 January, with the Rolex 24 at Daytona beginning on 27 January.
United Autosports previously raced in the Rolex 24 at Daytona in 2011 with Martin Brundle, Mark Blundell, Mark Patterson and Zak Brown behind the wheel of a Riley Ford Daytona Prototype.
They finished fourth after 24 hours of racing - less than four seconds behind the winning car.
