The 2020 racing season gets underway this afternoon as the 58th Rolex 24 begins. A Mazda is on the pole and the question is can Mazda keep running for 24 hours. I look for a strong challenge from Penske Acura. The 6 car looks especially strong. Wayne Taylor Racing, in their first race without either of t Taylor brothers driving, could be a factor also.
The weather looks to be dry with moderate temperatures. After last year’s deluge., dry and mild is very welcome.
In GTLM, it could be a battle between the Porsches. They traded the lead back and forth in qualifying. A Lamborghini will win the GTLM class.
I hope to report every six hours.
