Young Guns Impress During Rolex 24

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Hitting the streets solo for the first time in the family minivan or SUV is a huge responsibility for a newly licensed 16-year-old driver. Another of Ori and Llarena’s direct competitors in LMP3 in the Rolex 24 carried some unique parallels. Braun has since carved out an impressive sports car career, amassing 18 IMSA race wins highlighted by a pair of class triumphs in the Rolex 24. Now 32, Braun still enjoys fond memories of his rookie Rolex 24 run in 2005 – when Llarena and Ori were both less than a year old. Like Llarena and Ori, most of Braun’s racing experience prior to entering the Rolex 24 was in small, single-seat formula cars. “I’d say there were a few more differences in how the car had to be driven,” Braun said.
