2014 Live Feed for Rolex 24hr Daytona

2014 Rolex 24hr Group Shot

 Your guide to the four classes in the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship and the key identifiers to help easily follow the on-track action.  With 4 classes- P, GTLM, PC and GTD running 67 cars at the start, that's some traffic! 

Hey night owl found the live feed there's plenty of race time left, enjoy the race. The DP Vettes are kickin butt with the Ford Ecoboost right behind. (well that was last night, the Corvette DP has dominated)  This is the shit, live feed, news updates and live scoring, love today's technology!  They're doing an outstanding job of presenting this New Series.

Mental Note: As I was pulling this together tonight I couldn't imagine watching this on an iPhone or tablet for that matter, let's say you have three monitors one is set to the news update, the middle is the race itself and on the right, you have the scoring.  The sound system is cranked  with a feed of 25 Mbps to 100 Mbps and a blown PC, this is like watching the markets around the world.  Any Hot Rodder has a blown PC because going under the hood is all for the experience.  I mean with even one wide monitor you can have several tabs open if not two insistence of a browser running side by side.  Even three separate browsers if you're using a huge monitor but three monitors, is three wide!  Long live the home PC.

Wow! Crash brings out Red Flag 

United Sports Car Championship: Coming out of Turn 3 and blinded by the sun, the No. 99 of Memo Gidley slams into the back of the stalled No. 62 car of Matteo Malucelli.  Come on man, why didn't Malucelli get off the track?  Could of easily pulled off into the grass, he had time.  Loss of power, you get your ass off the track.

Rolex 24 Highlights 

2014 Action Express wins Rolex 24hr Daytona

 The race featured 52 lead changes, with the winning Action Express team leading 18 times for 313 laps, and the Wayne Taylor Racing team 12 times for 228 laps. The winning team completed 695 laps on the 3.56-mile circuit, covering 2,474.2 miles.  While the new Corvette C7.R that raced in the GT Le Mans class and its street counterpart – the Z06 – opened the event with plenty of fanfare, the Corvette DP flexed considerable muscle of its own by sweeping the top four positions. 

Porsche North America won in GT Le Mans (GTLM) in the debut of the factory team run in conjunction with CORE autosport. Patrick Pilet beat BMW Team RLL’s Joey Hand to the checkered flag by 2.838 seconds in the No. 911 Porsche 911 RSR, coming back after briefly falling behind Hand’s No. 55 BMW Z4 GTE with two laps remaining. Richard Lietz took his second Rolex 24 GT victory, having won in a Magnus Racing Porsche in 2012. He won joined by first-time winners Pilet and Nick Tandy.  It was Porsche’s 76th class victory in the history of the Rolex 24, and the 40th triumph for a 911-based Porsche. 

GT Daytona (GTD) was even closer. Alessandro Pier Guidi, driving the No. 555 Level 5 Motorsports Ferrari 458 Italia, raced side-by-side with No. 45 Flying Lizard Motorsports Audi R8 LMS driver Markus Winkelhock. The pair battled closely through the closing laps. Pier Guidi was 1.293 seconds ahead at the checkered flag, but was immediately penalized for his aggressive driving and the race initially was awarded to Flying Lizard Motorsports. Upon further review by IMSA Supervisory Officials, the decision was reversed and Level 5 Motorsports was declared the winning team.
