The G&W Motorsports team completed the 2000 24 Hours of Daytona with their second consecutive podium finish, capping a roller coaster ride that saw the #81 Porsche GT3R lead 15 hours before succumbing to engine failure. The #07 Jennifer Fund RSR continued unabated as attrition set in to finish a miraculous 3rd in class and 12th overall. The Huisman/Alzen/Law entry held an 11 lap lead over the nearest competitor and ran as high as 7th overall before disaster struck, and the gap could have been even wider if not for a number of minor problems.. "If that thing would've stayed running, they would have needed a calendar to see how much we won by!" one G&W team member reported, but would've, could've and should've are words a lot of teams use at the 24 Hours of Daytona. The Marshall/Merril/Fitzgerald/MacAllister/Law entry ran a flawless race, proving that reliability is the one great characteristic of a true endurance car. The team was elated to salvage the improbable podium finish, besting all of the North American entries in Grand American Road Racing Association's inaugural event. G&W Motorsports would like to thank all of the Drivers, Crew and Sponsors for this result, especially Pure Image, Cal IV Entertainment, the Valley Group, Jim Heustess, Nina Spitzley and Frank and Mary Morgan for all of the undying support. The next Grand-Am event on the G&W Motorsports schedule is the April 20-22 race at Phoenix.
