The 58th Rolex 24 gets underway today with three practice sessions and qualifying. The Thursday night practice is one of my favorite sessions of the entire year of racing. There is nothing on the line,just cars driving through the darkness.
Tomorrow has the final practice round before Saturday’s race. Most of Friday features the four hour Michelin Pilot race.
Saturday the 24 hour race begins an hour earlier than it has the past few years. The start Saturday and finish Sunday are on NBC.
I will have the television schedule up later. I’m leaving for the track and will provide updates periodically, including my famous well read mid race report. Thanks to both of you who read that one.
