The Rolex 24 at Daytona features two styles of cars, prototypes and GTs, with each having a pro and pro-am class. This results in four classes of cars racing on-track simultaneously. All cars featuring pro drivers will have a red tag affixed to their car, while models with pro-am drivers will have green number panels. You can keep track on the standings and position for each class via LED panels located on the sides on each car.
Prototype (P) Class:
Highlighted by an professional driver lineup, these are the fastest and most technologically advanced cars in North America. Specifically designed and engineered for the most challenging racetracks, their style is drastically different than your average street car.
Prototype Challenge (PC) Class:
The class is driven by pro-am drivers with unmodified cars, meaning each car here is exactly the same. They feature an open cockpit and technology including a carbon fiber chassis, carbon fiber brakes, and a sequential gear box.
GT Le Mans (GTLM) Class
This class consists of the most sophisticated production-based models on the track. Driven by a 100 percent professional driving lineup, they are specifically engineered to extract maximum performance. These cars also serve as an important proving ground for top manufacturers in the industry.
GT Daytona (GTD) Class
The GTD class involves production models that are enhanced, but not defined technology. Featuring by pro-am drivers, these cars don’t feature the same level of aerodynamics and power as the GTLM class.
