Know Before They Go Green -Scuderia Corsa and the Rolex 24 At Daytona

30.01.2021: Scuderia Corsa qualified eighth for the Rolex 24 At Daytona nearly a week ago and now the 59th running of America’s top endurance race is set to go green at 3:40 p.m. ET.


Scuderia Corsa qualified eighth for the Rolex 24 At Daytona nearly a week ago and now the 59th running of America’s top endurance race is set to go green at 3:40 p.m. ET.
 



Drivers Bret Curtis, Ryan Briscoe, Ed Jones and Marcos Gomes are up against multiple stacked lineups in the GT Daytona field that is 19 cars deep with one other Ferrari running in the class. However, Scuderia Corsa’s lineup is not one to sleep on, each driver brings a highlight or two that should serve as an easy reminder that Scuderia Corsa is ready for any fight.
 


Bret Curtis is an endurance veteran and has spent many races behind the wheel of the Ferrari 488 and now the Ferrari 488 EVO. His flexibility in racing at different tracks, series and Ferrari race cars will benefit his effort against the competition. Curtis has raced on the largest racing stages in the world including the 24 Hours of Le Mans, Spa 24 Hours, Dubai 24 Hours, Bathurst 12 and many others.
 


Ryan Briscoe has three Rolex Daytona’s to his name, the most recent coming from his win last year in the Dpi Class. Briscoe may still be best connected to his long IndyCar career, but his sports car credentials are not something quickly glanced over. Briscoe has won the Rolex 24 At Daytona, Petit Le Mans, Twelve Hours of Sebring and Six Hours at The Glen amongst many other notable sprint wins.
 


Ed Jones is just getting started in sports car racing, but his open-wheel career has an impressive list of highlights. He has won the 2013 European F3 Open Championship, 2016 Indy Lights Championship and took home the honor of Rookie of the Year at the 2017 Indianapolis 500 where he finished third in his first-ever start at the historic race.
 


Marcos Gomes is a Ferrari expert through and through racing all over the globe in various series with the prancing horse. IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship fans know him for setting the lap record at Daytona International Speedway in GTD along with earning pole position at the 2019 Rolex 24 At Daytona. When not behind the wheel of a Ferrari he’s most likely racing in the ultra-competitive Brazilian Stock Car series. Gomes began his stock car career in 2006, winning the championship in 2015.
 


Scuderia Corsa is a three-time IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship (2015, 2016, 2017) winning team with an additional GrandAm series championship win in 2013 prior to the ALMS merger. Outside of Briscoe Scuderia Corsa is very familiar with its driver lineup. The race team has supported Curtis at Le Mans, Ferrari Challenge and IMSA. Gomes ran with Scuderia Corsa’s support at Daytona in 2014 and 2015. Then Ed Jones paired up with Scuderia Corsa to run IndyCar in 2019.
 


The endurance classic goes green Saturday, Jan. 30 at 3:40 p.m. ET. For schedule details and the 2021 IMSA calendar visit http://imsa.com. Follow all the action on Scuderia Corsa's social media channels: Twitter @Scuderia_Corsa, Facebook at Scuderia Corsa, Instagram at @Scuderia.Corsa.
