Reminder: F1 Coverage Slows for Live Coverage of Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona


What Happens When the OASTD Off-Season is Over

10:45am EST —  As a reminder, regular news coverage here at On Any Sunday, These Days will slow for the next week and a half (right during F1 launch and early testing, for that I am sorry).  Instead, coverage will mainly consist of Grand-Am sportscar racing from the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona.  For great F1 coverage, do follow my colleagues at Formula1Blog, where most of my work has been going lately.  Unfortunately, they’ll have to pick up my slack while I attend an actual race weekend.  Coverage will be provided through articles and pictures at this site and Formula1Blog, but minute-by-minute coverage (complete with pictures from the pit lane and garages) will be available at “VMR on Sunday” on Twitter.  Interviews with drivers and the various racers simply participating as spectators will also be found at F1B through the weekend and after the race.

I will attempt to satisfy any questions or requests for interviews or pictures from the Rolex submitted as comments here, sent to onanysundaythesedays@gmail.com, or @vmronsunday on Twitter.

For those who are unaware, the Rolex is a sportscar race run under the Grand-Am umbrella and part of that championship here in the States.  It is similar to, though not as prestigious as, the 24 Heures du Le Mans.  More information can be found at the series’s official site, including a current entry list, which includes such drivers as Juan Pablo Montoya, Max Papis, Dario Franchitti, Scott Dixon, Scott Pruett, Jamie McMurray, Max Angelelli, Raphael Matos, Ricardo Zonta, Alex Gurney, Jimmie Johnson, Jimmy Vasser, Dominik Farnbacher, Patrick Dempsey, Jorg Bergmeister, Timo Bernhard, Bobby Labonte, and many, many others.  SPEED will broadcast the race with a preview of the event at 2pm on Saturday the 30th, with race coverage starting at 3pm.
