Krohn Racing enjoyed a strong weekend of testing at Daytona International Speedway for the Roar Before the Rolex 24 ahead of the opening round of the new TUDOR United SportsCar Championship.

The team’s Ferrari F458, which competes in the GTLM class, consistently set competitive times across all eight of the sessions across the three days. Team owner Tracy Krohn shared driving duties across the weekend with long-time teammate Nic Jonsson in a variety of track conditions as temperatures varied and rainstorms made periodic appearances across the three day test.

“Throughout this three day period, we started with a car that was iffy, at best, and we’ve gotten better with every single session,” enthused Krohn. “The performance, stability, and braking has gotten better. We’ve been able to do just about all the testing we wanted to do, in spite of the fact that we’ve had to stop and go with all the red flags. I’m very pleased with where we’re at from where we started at the beginning of the weekend, and although we still have a little work to do, I’m very pleased with what we’ve accomplished.”

“In general, we’ve had a good spread of weather,” added race engineer Hayden Burvil. “It was cold on Friday, mild weather on Saturday and warm weather on Sunday. Cold weather is unusual for the race, but it’s nice to have the ability to test in that, as we could end up having weather like that for the race. Now we know what works for us in a number of conditions. Both Tracy and Nic have gotten done what they needed to do. We’ve had no real issues with the car, which is typical given the level of organization we’re working with, so no real surprises in the direction that we’ve gone with the setup. The car has responded well, the drivers have responded well, and the tires have worked. Right now, we feel like we’re well prepared to come back for the 24 hour race in terms of the setup that we’d race with.”
