All about Rolex 24 at Daytona
Ferrari Challenge’s first big race of the season will be taking place at Daytona International Speedway’s famous Rolex 24. Rolex 24 at Daytona, also known as, 24 Hours at Daytona is one of the biggest endurance races. The Rolex 24 is the start of many race seasons, including the WeatherTech Sportscar Championship. Moreover, the Rolex 24 is historically known as a leg of an informal endurance race cup called the Triple Crown of Endurance Racing. Last year’s winners were from the Wayne Taylor Racing Team. This team also won the WeatherTech Sportscar Championship in 2019. Rolex 24 is the only race that you will be able to view IMSA regulars, Nascar, Indycar, and Formula 1 races all in one spot.
What to do during the Rolex 24 Weekend
You may be asking yourself, “Well, that sounds fun but what exactly is there to do at Daytona International Speedway for 24 hours?”. There is so much to do at the Rolex 24, especially for Ferrari owners. As a Ferrari owner, you will be able to partake in a VIP experience with the Ferrari VIP Hospitality Suite. The Hospitality Suite allows Ferrari owners to have a truly luxurious experience with access to more than just racing. For those who enjoy the culinary arts, Ferrari provides catered food throughout the day. For those who enjoy racing but want a better view, the Ferrari Hospitality Suite allows you to view the race from above in a viewing grandstand and outdoor patio. If you want to get up close and personal, you can take advantage of access to the IMSA racing paddock as well as the Ferrari Challenge Paddock on Thursday and Friday.
For those who enjoy some relaxation, Ferrari provides spa appointments (depending on availability) from a trained sports massage therapist. Lastly, Ferrari VIP guests in the hospitality suite also will be allowed to meet racing champions. On Friday, official Ferrari GTLM professional drivers and the 2019 Petit Le Mans champions will be available for a meet and greet. On Saturday, experience a meet and greet with the 2019 defending Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli champion. For our partygoers, Ferrari hosts a Saturday night reception. At the Rolex 24, there is something for everyone to enjoy.
This year’s Rolex 24 at Daytona takes place on January 23- January 26. You won’t want to miss out on all the fun at Daytona. However, if you can’t make it to this event, more Ferrari Challenge races are coming up this season.
