Goodyear teams captured two class victories and a pair of top-five finishes overall in the Rolex Sports Car Series' 2003 running of the Rolex 24 at Daytona.

Scott Maxwell, David Brabham and David Empringham co-drove their Ford Multimatic to victory in the new Daytona Prototype class and finished fourth in the overall scoring. The Mosler MT900R driven by Jerome Policand, Michel Neugarten, Andy Wallace and Joao Barbosa took the GTS class title and finished ninth overall.

A GTS class Corvette driven by Justin Bell had the quickest time in qualifying. His qualifying time was 1 minute, 49.394 seconds, an average speed of 117.155 mph.

"We were very content with the way the tires performed with the new Daytona Prototype class," said Bob Shaffer, marketing manager, sports car racing. "Congratulations to the Multimatic and Mosler teams for their class victories."

The twice-around-the-clock test marked the first-ever racing appearance by the prototype class.
