Rolex 24 at Daytona 2019: Results


The 2019 Rolex 24 at Daytona got the Green flag Saturday, 26 January at 2:30 p EST. This year’s field of 47 cars features 4 classes:

  • Daytona Prototype international (DPi)
  • Le Mans Prototype 2 (LMP2)
  • GT Le Mans (GTLM),
  • GT Daytona (GTD).

The team to watch in the 2019 Rolex 24 at Daytona may be Mazda Team Joest and its pair of Mazda DPi prototypes.

In the “ROAR Before the 24” qualifying session a few weeks ago, Oliver Jarvis, driving the No. 77 Mazda, unofficially set a new track record at Daytona. Such a quick lap gave the No. 77 first choice of garage and pit placement.

In official qualifying Thursday, Jarvis again set a new track record with a time of 1:33.685, putting the No. 77 Mazda DPi on the pole for the 2019 Rolex 24 at Daytona.

Mazda has raced in the Prototype class of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship since Y 2014 and has never won a race.

Many believe Y 2019 could be the manufacturer’s year, in the series’ premier race, no less.
