Plowman steps into the future at Daytona testing
Testing Conquest P2 as work on ’14 class structure continues
Martin Plowman will take a step into The Future on Tuesday. It won’t be in a time machine, a la Michael J. Fox. Nope… his ride will be much cooler and stylish than the one that made Delorean a household name in the mid-1980s.
A total of 19 Rolex Series carsRS – eight Daytona Prototypes and 11 GT cars – are entered for the test. It’s the last open test before the final official test in early January for the Rolex 24 at Daytona; GRAND-AM opens its season on Jan. 26-27.
Among the more notable entries for this week includes two-time ALMS champion and five-time Le Mans winner Frank Biela in an Audi R8 car in GT.
Testing runs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., on Tuesday and Wednesday. A section of the track’s Oldfield Grandstands is open and free to the public. Fans also can watch the action as part of the Daytona International Speedway Track Tour.
