Leading up to this exciting event will be 3 days of practice, qualifying, and a night practice for cars competing in the Classic 24 Hour
In 1968 the legendary "24 Hours of DAYTONA" was born and we just celebrated the most recent running of the famed race. Now HSR announces a classic 24-hour race dedicated to cars that have raced in the DAYTONA endurance races of the past.
Historic Sportscar Racing LTD (HSR), in association with the Historic Motor Sports Association (HMSA) and Vintage Racing Events (VRE), will stage the first 24-Hour Endurance Race for historic race cars in North America at the Daytona International Speedway Nov. 12-16, 2014.
The race consists of six period-correct race groups competing on a rotating schedule. Each of the groups is based on performance and age, competing in one-hour sessions, four times each over the 24 hours. The first group will take the green flag at noon on Saturday for 50 minutes of wheel to wheel competition. A five minute pit-stop during each session (driver change is optional), will be required. When one group takes the checkered flag the next group is on the grid and ready to roll out behind the pacecar for their chance to race on the high banks of Daytona.
Leading up to this exciting event will be 3 days of practice, qualifying, and a night practice for cars competing in the Classic 24 Hour. Complementing the Classic 24 Hour will be HSR's signature Trans-am Sprint and Endurance Race Series. Entrance to the race is open to all significant sports cars from 1961-2010.
