Rain Slows Final Day of Roar Before The Rolex 24 Testing
JORDAN TAYLOR FASTEST OF WEEKEND, BARRICHELLO QUICKEST IN WET
Starworks Motorsport waited until the closing minutes of Sunday’s final Roar Before the Rolex 24 weekend at Daytona International Speedway to make a headline. With the track nearly dry following scattered showers throughout the day, the team bolted a set of slick tires on the No. 7 Dinan/Riley and sent out veteran Formula One star Rubens Barrichello – who promptly posted the fastest lap of the day by nearly five miles per hour.
Barrichello lapped the 3.56-mile circuit in 1:47.230 (119.519 mph). While he admits the lap was a fluke, the 11-time Formula One winner feels the team made major strides in preparation for the 2015 TUDOR United SportsCar Championship season-opening Rolex 24 At Daytona on Jan. 24-25.
