What does schedules changes to the 24 Hours of Daytona and its test mean for teams and drivers?
TUDOR United SportsCar Series driver Dion von Molkte says he is happy with the changes made to the schedule for the serie’s January Daytona visits.
The schedule moves the Roar before the 24 up a week bringing it from the first weekend in January to the second. While the change seems to be rather minor, Von Moltke says it will give teams a bit more time to prepare after the holidays.
But with that said, at the other end of the spectrum, the new schedule also doesn’t allow teams much time to prepare for the race weekend after the test.
“Teams will have less time after the test to go through the cars and improve them for the race, but I believe the teams will take that for the extra week they have to prepare before hand,” said the Flying Lizard Motorsports driver.
