Starworks Motorsport have become the latest Daytona Prototype team to confirm their driving line-up for the Rolex 24 at Daytona.
The team's no.8 Riley-Ford will be shared by five drivers, with 2010 champion, Scot Ryan Dalziel, leading the team. Dalziel won the race last year driving for Action Express Racing, before contesting the rest of the season for Starworks Motorsport. With regular teammate Mike Forest he finished fifth in the points standings driving a BMW engine prototype.
Forest will once more join up with Dalziel for the Rolex 24, sportscar stalwart Tomas Enge, Colin Braun and Jim Lowe will round out the team for the January 29-30 endurance race.
“I'm really excited about our line-up in the #8 car,” said Starworks' Principal, Peter Baron. “I'm glad that Ryan and Mike will be working together again and that Ryan and Tomas are reunited after some successful outings for me in the past. We've had Colin Braun on our radar for the Rolex 24 at Daytona for some time and I'm glad it's going to work out this time to get him in our car.”
“We're also happy to be welcoming a Daytona Prototype newcomer in the form of Jim Lowe. He's got a wealth of experience at this event in the GT class so we know he'll be a solid driver for us as we target the top step of the podium. We had a ton of interest from drivers to take the seats now filled by Tomas and Colin but we like the fact that they're 'no-ego' racers and that they share our desire to win. We know our car will be fast with Bill Riley calling the shots on engineering and with Ford power pushing us around the track!”
