The Anglo American Oil Company has awarded a second tier to the Sunoco Rolex 24 At Daytona Challenge and will award a ride in the 2012 GRAND-AM 200 at Daytona, the opening round of the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge.
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Pleased with the success of the Sunoco Rolex 24 At Daytona Challenge that awards a funded seat in a Daytona Prototype for America’s most prestigious endurance race, the Anglo American Oil Company has awarded a second tier to the contest and will award a ride in the 2012 GRAND-AM 200 at Daytona, the opening round of the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge.

Drivers in the Britcar Production GTN, Legends 600, Mini Challenge, MSV F3 Cup, GT Cup and the Dunlop Production Touring Car Trophy will earn points based on finish positions, pole positions and fastest race laps. The opportunity to be part of the historic 50th Rolex 24 At Daytona weekend will go to the competitor with the highest point average.

“With the Sunoco Rolex 24 At Daytona Challenge now its third year it’s great to be able to run the Sunoco GRAND-AM 200 Challenge alongside this and give something back to club level racers,” said Anders Hildebrand, managing director of Anglo American Oil Company.

The Sunoco Rolex 24 At Daytona Challenge – arguably the largest prize offered in British motorsports – features competition among the Avon Tyres British GT Championship, Cooper Tires F3 International and the Britcar MSA British Endurance Championship.

British drivers Derek Johnston and Ross Kaiser are past winners of the competition.
