Taking 24 Hour testing to the limit!
As a prelude to the start of the 2017 FIA WEC season and the most famous endurance race of them all, the 24 Hours of Le Mans (Round 3, 17-18 June 2017), a number of drivers take part in other endurance events around the world to keep them race-ready and sharp.
2015 World Endurance Champion Brendon Hartley made a highly successful GT debut a few weeks ago in a Porsche 911 GT3 R, winning the Dubai 24 Hours on his first visit, and the New Zealander is also one of over 35 WEC drivers aiming for success in this weekend’s Rolex 24 at Daytona in Florida (28-29 January 2017).
The American twice round-the-clock race has the makings of being a classic, with star names such as Jani, Buemi, Senna, Lapierre, Menezes, Collard, Tincknell, Pla, Sørensen, Bird and Rigon all racing for victory and a Rolex watch!
Good luck and safe racing to them all.
