At long last, the racing season is upon us.
Since 1962, the best sports car racers in the world have participated in the grueling Rolex 24 at Daytona, and they’ll do so again starting Saturday.
The 55th running of the 24-hour race not only marks the start of the 2017 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship campaign, but also the start of a new era for the American endurance series. IMSA ahead of this year introduced new technical regulations for its restructured car classes, so the Rolex 24 will be the first time the new racers get pushed flat-out around the clock.
Here’s how to watch the 2017 Rolex 24 at Daytona.
