Latest Guide: 2018 Rolex24, Daytona International Speedway
Last Updated: v3 (12am EST 25th January) – see change-list at bottom of page for updates
(aside from late changes, this should be considered final)
The IMSA Spotter Guide returns for the 12th season, 11th as an official resource!
This is the dedicated page for the IMSA Spotter Guides during 2018 and the url will not change.
2018 sees the debut of a number of new entries, liveries and in the Continental Challenge, the new TCR class. All the more reason for an up to date Spotter Guide by your side, at your home, office or the track.
Fifty cars are entered in the main event, the Rolex24 with new teams such as Acura Team Penske, European and Asian visitors including JOTA and United Autosport and a number of new entries in the GTD class. The Rolex24 Spotter Guide is the first time some of the liveries have been seen in public!
The ‘BMW Endurance Challenge’ is the Continental Tires SportsCar Challenge event on the Friday. This has no less than 30 ‘GS’ class cars including a number of chassis from Mercedes, Audi, Porsche and Ford. The new TCR class will be hot on their tails while the ST class brings up the rear. Live coverage of the Continental race is on IMSA.com and IMSA Radio.
Want a car to support this weekend? I am also fortunate to have 11 liveries racing across these two championships, I also assisted with three other liveries and have another 3 liveries in the supporting Ferrari Challenge.
As with previous years, the guide will be updated during race week with driver changes and any significant livery updates. There will be an update on Thursday 25th January, once the Team RLL BMW Liveries have been launched.
If you are at the event, Andy Blackmore Design and IMSA co-produce a Viewing guide which includes a printed Spotter Guides which is normally available in the IMSA FanZone area from Thursday of race week.
Thanks to IMSA for partnering with the guide. If you get a few seconds, please thank IMSA on Twitter. Without their support, there would be no guide. hank you to all the teams who have helped with creating the guide. Virtually every team assisted in some way this year, so huge thanks!
Massive thanks to the tens of thousands who have downloaded the guide or picked up one of the printed guides at the circuit.
NOTE: Please fill free to share the guide on Social Media, but PLEASE LINK TO THIS PAGE and not the guide (as file names change with updates, particularly with the month change this week) so your friends and fans can download the latest version of the guide! I can also track data easier which in turn helps my quest for sponsorship
