Grand-Am Rolex Series December 2011 Testing

2011 Grand-Am Rolex Series December Testing - Images by Brian Cleary

Since 2001 I’ve been the official photographer for the Grand-American Road Racing Rolex Sportscar Series. Each winter after one season ends and before the next season begins, the teams gather their cars, usually at Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Florida, and start testing their equipment and drivers in preparation for the following season’s 24 Hours of Daytona. It’s always a time of great excitement as new teams and cars hit the track for the first time.

December 2011 is no exception as four brand-new Chevrolet Corvette Daytona Prototypes, three Ferrari 458’s and an Audi R8 hit the track in preparation for their 24 Hour endurance classic debuts!
