Roar Before The Rolex 24 at Daytona to feature qualifying for pits, garages

The Roar Before The Rolex 24 At Daytona has long signified the start of the racing season

The annual three-day preseason testing session at Daytona International Speedway for the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship and IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge takes place on Jan. 5-7, 2018 with additions that will get everyone ready for the 2018 season.

It traditionally has offered race fans a glimpse into the upcoming season and built anticipation for the season-opening race, the Rolex 24 At Daytona, at the end of the month. “The Roar,” as it has become known, takes on even more significance in 2018 for Rolex 24 competitors.

The pit boxes and garages each team will use during the Rolex 24 will now be allocated based on fastest qualifying times set during Sunday’s third and final day of the Roar. Each of the three WeatherTech Championship classes – Prototype (P), GT Le Mans (GTLM) and GT Daytona (GTD) – will have a 15-minute qualifying session on Sunday, Jan. 7.
