Roar Before the 24 Hours of Daytona

06-08 january 2017

The Roar Before the 24 Hours of Daytona is the first official pre-season test for IMSA’s WeatherTech SportsCar Championship. The test, which kicks off the racing season, lasts 3 days and serves as an important preparation for North America’s most prestigious 24-hour race, the 24 Hours of Daytona.  

The Roar Before the 24 Hours of Daytona is a significant test weekend which marks the end to the winter break and the start to the new season, as well as the Speedweeks at Daytona International Speedway. This is the first event in the new season where fans can watch as competitors from around the world come together to prepare for the new season and the prestigious 24 Hours of Daytona. This event is also an important precursor to the season, as it is the first time that manufacturers and teams get the chance to see how they stack up against the competition.
