Things might be a bit quiet around here today, as we are bound for Florida for the 54th running of the 24 Hour race at Daytona. Now known as the Rolex 24 at Daytona, this grand daddy of North American auto racing is the perennial start of the annual racing season. Racers from across the world and from different genres of motorsport come together to tackle the grueling race around the clock.
It is a grueling event for media too, as many try to stay awake for the entire race. I can’t guarantee that I’ll be doing updates all night, but….wait, who am I kidding? I will not be doing updates overnight. I will happily be across the street sleeping to the sounds of race cars right next door!
Stay tuned over the weekend, as I’ll do my best to keep you updated to the progress of Canadian racers, while also covering some of the infield wildlife!
