The 2020 Rolex 24 Hours: By The Numbers

Records smashed

Two records were smashed in the Rolex 24 Hours that was interrupted by just six full-course cautions totalling 1 hour 43 minutes and 43 seconds (or 28 laps!).

The first is the overall distance record which stood at 808 laps before today and has now been upped to 833 laps (2965.48 miles).

Five first time IMSA sanctioned race winners put the total now above 1000 to 1002 with the first IMSA race wins for Ben Hanley, Henrik Hedman, Harrison Newey, Chaz Mostert and Andrea Caldrelli.

The longest consecutive period of green flag running was smashed too, that now stands at 7 hours and 48 minutes or 280 laps.

DPi

It’s a fourth win on the bounce at Rolex 24 for the Cadillac Dpi which is unbeaten in the Dpi era at this great race.

It’s two wins in a row for WTR/ Konica Minolta too, and three out of four DPi wins at Daytona for the team.

Mazda comes home a fighting second place, not the finish they would have liked but the first finish for a Mazda here since 2012!

It’s a double win not only for Wayne Taylor’s team but for drivers Kamui Kobayashi and Renger van der Zande.

GTLM

It’s two in a row for BMW, the M8 GTE and Team RLL and for Augusto Farfus.

GTD

It’s three wins in a row for Lamborghini and the Huracan GT3.

It’s Paul Miller Racing’s first Rolex 24 win.

LMP2

It’s two LMP2 wins in a row for DragonSpeed at the Rolex 24 Hours.
