DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (January 28, 2017) – Passing the halfway mark of the season-opening 24 Hours of Daytona, Scuderia Corsa’s two-car has shown continual promise throughout the first 12 hours, with the No. 64 Scuderia Corsa Ferrari 488 GT3 in a continual threat for the podium, while the No. 63 Scuderia Corsa Ferrari 488 GT3 has shown remarkable pace and resilience.
Running an error-free first 12 hours, the No. 64 Scuderia Corsa Ferrari of Townsend Bell, Bill Sweedler, Frankie Montecalvo and Sam Bird is proving a true contender, with all four drivers cycling through their respective stints with a strong combination of pace and patience. At the time of release, the car sits in fourth-place at the hands of Sweedler.
The No. 63 Scuderia Corsa Ferrari of Cooper MacNeil, Alessandro Balzan, Gunnar Jeanette and Jeff Segal, has also demonstrated continued pace throughout their opening run, continuing to set some of the most competitive lap times in the field and climbing through the field despite some early setbacks.
Just under 12 hours remain, with both the race and valuable championship points on the line.
The 24 Hours at Daytona continues through tomorrow afternoon.
