Huff joined the Enzo Potolicchio’s 8Star Motorsports and shares the team’s Oreca FLM09 Chevrolet prototype with the team owner, Tom Kimber-Smith and Mike Marsal.
Rob Huff gets to enjoy competing in long distance races. After winning the 25 Hours of Thunderhill and finishing second in the Dubai 24 Hours, the 2012 WTCC champion takes part this weekend in the famous Daytona 24 Hours.
“I’m excited to be making my 24 Hours of Daytona debut. The limited experience I gained during the ‘Roar’ test was certainly enough to whet my appetite and I cannot wait to comete in the actual race at the wheel of the 8Star Motorsports’ prototype,” Huff said.
Yesterday’s qualifying proved disappointing for Huff and his team-mates as they failed to post a valid time because of a gearbox failure. This will force them to start from the back of the grid.
