Calum Lockie will return to the Rolex 24 at Daytona, joining TRGAMR for the opening round of the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship.

Lockie’s drive brings him back to the high-banked International Speedway for the Rolex 24 for the first time since he competed in the race in three consecutive years starting in 2000, racing for Konrad Motorsport and Dutchman Cor Euser’s Marcos Racing International team.

Lockie will drive one of TRG-AMR’s GT3 Aston Martin Vantage in the GT Daytona class of the race (January 25-26). TRG are a long established and successful sports car team in the US, and having been associated with running Porsches in several series have become Aston Martin’s official partner in North America, with their TUDOR Championship entries the pinnacle of team’s 2014 plans.

“It is hugely exciting to be going back to Daytona 12 years on from when I last raced there,” said Lockie. “I did Daytona in 2000, 2001 and 2002 and I’ve been trying to get back ever since.”

“Getting into an Aston Martin GT3 is always going to be great because they are fantastic cars. I’ve been contracted as the lead driver to do the qualifying and the start of the race.”

Lockie’s entry in to the races comes with the support of David Mason OBE, who previously served as title sponsor for the March and Arrows Formula One teams in the 1970s.
