No owners corral again this year. A combination of Daytona construction, Daytona's lack of interest in providing this sort of thing (with the exception of the long standing Porsche Corral) and the exorbitant cost to the manufactures if they did offer it, as well as Mazda corporate choosing to have an owners lounge infeild versus an owners corral have all been factors.
The "Roar Before the Rolex 24" test days happens this Friday, Saturday, & Sunday. A great event to get a preview of the cars on the track and in the paddock minus the mega crowd. Saturday there is an evening test session under the lights ;-)
It's not a car coral from what it looks like. It looks more like the Mazda tent and makes sense since it's not held in the actual infield like several years. This year is awkward and it's a bit frustrating.
