24 Hours of Daytona...anyone else going?

Recommended Posts

Any other teams/folks going to 24 at Daytona this year?  Will be my first time down for the race.  We've got the whole team plus some extras headed down for it this year.  Looking forward to it!!

We go just about every year - by 'we' it usually turns into a good chunk of Lead Sled Racing and other affiliates & accomplices. Sometimes we get a little wild and crash out there (or Uber home reallllly late), other times we just wander around and harass people we know and only have a couple beers and get out. Being locals we usually just make the call depending on the weather. 

 

Do you have a spot or area reserved yet? We have a group of peeps that has multiple spots grouped together in between Nascar 3/4, and a few other groups scattered throughout the infield. 

 

Also, depending on when y'all get to town, we can meet up or guide you around to some decent local spots depending on what you are looking for.

I have no idea what our plan is for the weekend.  We get in Friday, staying at a airbnb at Flagler Beach (Closest place we could find that would fit all of us).  Most of us are instructing at the Ferrari club that Monday afterwards.  I've still got your number somewhere, but I'll get with ya when the date gets closer.  Gotta find me a decent backpack cooler and steal a bird scooter for the weekend.

Living 40 mins away I always make the call last minute.  Sometimes just head out for the Saturday, depends on evening weather.  

 

we will be a Sebring for sure.

If I go I will more than likely be working it with F&C and with that have pit lane access when not on station. The last time I went as a spectator was back in 2014. The first time I went however was back in 2004 and that one still stands out to me as I remember hearing a call going out over the radio at about 1 AM that Goodyear sold out of rain tires.

Flagler Beach is super cool. Chill beach town. About 30-40 min to the track, but very scenic if you take A1A. 

 

I should have your number too, but who knows if I saved it after that long weekend, just shoot me a PM.

Skipping Daytona for Super Sebring weekend in March.

 

This.  The WEC 10 hours made it an easy call.  MPR will be camping in pad 1 of turn 16 just like last year.

I switched to the Roar Before the 24.   Same cars but 1/4 the crowd and amazing garage access.

 

If you make it down, send me a PM and we will try and meet up. I didn't get to talk to you very long at Sebring in Sept.

I'll be at Roar, the 24 and super Sebring as my day job with Michelin pretty much makes being there a requirement.  Feel free to swing by the Michelin tire compound and say hello.

Do you know if RV camping is allowed for the Roar?   It says no on the website, but every year I see lots and lots of RVs.  Do they clear out each night?

I plan on going again with 3-4 other buddies from NC.  Will be tent camping outside turn 1/2 ,  although last year we only spent about 2-3 hours at the campsite.

We have never been to the Roar but always wanted to.  Maybe next year we can get down there for that too.

Either last year or the year before, dad and I just slept in the back of an expedition in the bass pro parking lot... lol.
