The Daytona 24 Hours 2018 has completely sold out in just three days. The race was confirmed for the May Day Weekend in 2018 and was increased to 45 teams for the first time. Existing teams snapped up 35 spaces during a private pre-sale on Wednesday and Thursday and the final ten spaces were booked following this morning’s public launch.
Now in its tenth year, the 2018 race will follow the same format as the 2017 race, with camping open from Friday evening, practice and qualifying on Saturday morning and the race start at 1300hrs on Saturday. Racing non-stop through the night, the chequered flag will be shown at 1300hrs on Sunday.
Daytona will provide everything required to teams entering the race, including either a race-prepared DMAX 125cc kart or a race-prepared Sodi RT8 390cc karts, all racewear, timing transponder and live online timing. The Daytona Pavilion will be selling a range of healthy refreshments throughout the weekend and the Daytona TV Team will be live broadcasting from the race on Facebook and Youtube.
Entry to the DMAX Class costs £2350 inc VAT and teams will be required to weight all drivers up to 85kgs throughout the race. Sodi Class entries cost £1700 inc VAT and the Sodi call will once again run without a minimum weight requirement.
As the May Race has sold out so quickly, we are considering repeating the October Daytona International 24 Hour Race again in 2018. If you are interested in entering the Daytona International 24 Hours 2018, please phone Mark on 03303327870 and ask to be put on the waiting list for information about the race.
