GTP Class Warms Up For Rolex 24

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — After years of high anticipation and technical development, the long-awaited LMDh prototypes will make their IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship competitive debut in the Rolex 24 at Daytona on Jan. 28-29. And it’s a toss-up as to who is more excited about the return of this GTP class — teams, drivers or fans. Nine GTP cars are among the 61 entrants for the Rolex 24, with eight continuing to compete in the full WeatherTech Championship season. Ricky Taylor and Filipe Albuquerque will race for the championship in the No. IndyCar star Colton Herta — a two-time Rolex 24 class winner — is listed as the fourth driver for both BMW cars. The infusion of innovative new cars, new teams and a long list of new drivers in IMSA’s marquee class has created unmistakable energy. It’s a shared sentiment by those competing in this GTP class.
