ESM was ranked 14th and 15th in the prototype class.
Extreme Speed Motorsports took to Daytona International Speedway in qualifying today for the 52nd Annual Rolex 24 At Daytona, the opening race of the 2014 TUDOR United SportsCar Championship and the first round of the Tequila Patrón North American Endurance Cup (NAEC).
For the start of a new season, in a new series, the Florida-based team expects a challenging and competitive year.
David Brabham qualified the No. 1 Tequila Patrón Honda Performance Development (HPD) ARX-03b, while Johannes van Overbeek was tasked with wheeling the No. 2 Tequila Patrón HPD.
The brief qualifying session was significantly shorter for ESM as it experienced minor problems that prevented both cars from getting to full power. In the end, ESM was ranked 14th and 15th in the prototype class.
On-track action resumed with night practice on Thursday, followed by a single practice session on Friday morning from 11:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
Green flag for the 52nd Rolex 24 At Daytona is scheduled for 2:10 p.m. ET on Jan 25.
The Rolex 24 – a twice-around-the-clock-classic – takes place on the 3.56-mile road course at Daytona International Speedway on Jan. 25-26. The 12-turn circuit utilizes portions of the track’s tri-oval and infield road course and is the first round of the TUDOR Championship.
