Upcoming Local Area Event! The 2019 Rolex 24 at Daytona International Speedway
Racing fans! Make sure to mark your calendar for this exciting, upcoming annual race event. Originally called 24 Hours of Daytona, the Rolex 24 at Daytona will take place early next year on January 26 and 27, 2019 at Daytona International Speedway. The infamous, 24-hour endurance race traditionally includes 60+ sports cars in the field, competing for victory in four different vehicle classes.
Types of cars include Fords, Mazdas, Corvettes, Ferraris, Porsches, Lamborghinis, and more. Each team works in shifts, with between three to five drivers per team. This unique event attracts drivers and visitors from around the world. Started in 1962, the 3.56-mile track showcases over 2,000 miles of high-speed racing action, while representing dozens of countries from around the world.
There are a couple of unique ways to enjoy this amazing event. “Garage Wristbands” are a fan-favorite, allowing you to have up-close access to all of the action, as you watch drivers and their crew prepare for the main event. In addition, the “Taste of the 24” will take place on Saturday, January 26, 2019 from 6 to 10pm, and will include exciting entertainment, non-stop racing, and delicious food from the area’s finest restaurants. We’ll be in attendance at Suite 219, handing out samples of menu favorites from our Azure Oceanfront American Kitchen. You’ll be able to dine on a delicious blend of foods and enjoy fast cars from the Midway Suites. Event tickets, wristbands, and dining event packages are all sold separately, so make sure to check out all of the event ticket details and plan ahead of time.
