Underway at the Rolex 24 at Daytona!

We are 90 minutes in and things have been pretty eventful up to this point.

Craig started our No.44 Magnus Racing Porsche GT3 Cup, with the race beginning under yellow due to heavy rain. The rain subsided and we got things started finally, with Craig moving the car from 22nd to 11th until a caution for a car stuck on course. We brought him in for fuel and tires, and with the track conditions drying, the team decided to change him to slicks. However, after only two or three laps, we were black flagged when the rear window of the car became dislodged. The team fixed it quickly, but clearly the track might have been just a little too wet for slicks as Craig hasn't gotten quite up to pace, but with several of the cars up the road still on wets, we will go forward as they will all have to come in with a drying track.

Stay tuned to our Live Blog, and you can also stay updated on Facebook and Twitter @MagnusRacing.
