TF Sport to open their IMSA account at Daytona 24

Thursday, December 10, 2020


TF Sport is heading Stateside for their first race of the 2021 season, as they make their IMSA debut at the 59th running of the Rolex 24. Daytona double-duty expert Ben Keating will be joined by 24 Hours of Le Mans winner Charlie Eastwood, Rolex 24 victor Richard Westbrook and promising GT youngster Maxwell Root, in TF Sport’s Aston Martin Vantage GT3.

The UK-based team will enter the fiercely competitive GTD class, at the opening round of the 2021 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship. TF Sport’s entry will be a guest appearance, with a view to running full-season IMSA campaigns in the future.

Ben Keating announced that “This will be my 11th Rolex 24 at Daytona and it’s my favourite race of the year! I know that my first Le Mans experience came on the heels of me winning the Rolex 24, so why not be with TF Sport at their first Rolex 24 experience, on the heels of just winning at Le Mans? I have never driven the Aston Martin, but I competed against them all year long and was very impressed with the GTE car - I expect that the GT3 car will handle similarly. What’s not to love about this program?!”

Following on from the stellar GTE-AM win at this year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans, TF Sport is confident for a strong showing at the world-renowned twice around the clock race in Florida.

The ‘Roar Before the Rolex 24’ will take place on January 22-24, with practice beginning on the following Thursday and the Daytona International Speedway lights will go green for the 24, on January 30.
