For the very first time, TIGOSE Member BGMsport went to Daytona with the Ferrari Daytona, on the occasion of the HSR Daytona Classic 24 hour event (Nov 2014).
The team prepared the car driven by Tim Summers and shipped it to the event; they also took care of it at the event according to their usual arrive-and-drive package.
Tim Summers qualified 9th, a great achievement for a first time there, and competing against such cars as Lola T70s, Ford GT40s and various other Chevrons and Porsches.
The main 24-hour race was superb: there were 4 x 50 minute races during the 24-hour period, starting at 13:00 hours on the Saturday and finishing at the same time on Sunday. Tim finished a superb 4th overall and 1st in class in what was one of the most (if not the most) popular car at the track.
The team’s Daytona was a real favourite, both with the spectating crowds, other drivers and teams.
It was an extremely close finish, beating the GT40 of Philip Walker and Mike Jordan by 0.6 seconds; a Chevron B16 was a further few seconds behind.
