Classic 24 Hour At Daytona Presented by IMSA reunites drivers, team, fans with memorable race cars

Classic 24 Hour At Daytona Presented by IMSA

If there was a theme song for this weekend’s Classic 24 Hour At Daytona Presented by IMSA, it might be the 1978 Peaches & Herb hit, “Reunited.”

Clearly, for drivers like Joao Barbosa, Didier Theys and Memo Gidley, this week’s Historic Sportscar Racing (HSR) event at Daytona International Speedway – as the song goes – “feels so good.” It’s the same feeling for the many other drivers, teams and sports car racing fans as well.

Barbosa, the two-time IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship Prototype champion and full-time driver of the No. 5 Mustang Sampling Cadillac DPi-V.R, this weekend’s Classic 24 provides a unique opportunity. He will climb back into the open cockpit of the 2007 Pescarolo 01 LMP1 race car he drove in the 24 Hours of Le Mans and other Le Mans Series races for Rollcentre Racing.
