Daytona, Turn 1

Turn One of Daytona’s Rolex 24 road course configuration is fast and hairy, because you’ve just spent a whole bunch of time flat-out from the Bus Stop chicane on the backside, through NASCAR 3 and 4, then across start/finish on the tri-oval. The road funnels down, getting narrower and narrower and…yes, One has its challenges.

As you fly across start/finish, in most cars you are at the bottom of the racetrack. You’ve got to keep your eyes up, looking for the white and then the red paint stripes on the wall at­ driver’s right. These marks are a great visual reference for your turn-in. The white is early, the red is late, so see which works well for you.
