From David Kelly – You will find photos of the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona Race on Saturday, January 28, 2017 at the link below. You’ll see action in the race team garages, as well as vintage race cars on display and the roll-out of those cars for the pre-24 Vintage Race. There are several photos of the 2017 Rolex 24 race cars aligned along Pit Road across from the start-finish line just prior to the start of the race. And, of course, many photos of the Porsches in the Porsche Corral, along with lots of track action.
You can see the new Porsche Factory RSR’s (#911 & #912) in their respective garages and getting last minute checks at the Tech. Station prior to race start. Check the GTLM Class second place finishing #911 RSR closely as the rear fascia is removed in the garage and you will see the “open space” in the new car which would normally be occupied by a portion of the engine in last year’s RSR’s. Also, you may find the rear diffuser and lower body side panels interesting.
There are also photos of the GTD Class-winning Alegra Porsche GT3R #28, driven by Porsche Factory driver, Michael Christensen and others, who came to the front to stay after the last round of Pit Stops to capture Porsche’s 77th class victory at this world-famous race venue.
As always, there was lots to see, plenty to do, and a great time for all PCA members and race fans. I hope you enjoy the photos.
