If you haven't already heard, the 2018 Rolex 24 at Daytona is happening this weekend. Before you jump into the race tomorrow, why not learn the track with Porsche factory driver Patrick Long in a simulator rig?
Driving for the #37 Wright Motorsports racing team with his 911 GT3 R, Long has plenty of sports car racing experience. Long's a Le Mans class winner, so it's safe to say he knows what he's talking about.
Using a Motion ProII racing simulator from , Long walks us through the track turn-by-turn, giving us pointers on where to enter and exit, how much speed to carry, and how to avoid hitting faster or slower cars. In a multi-class race like Daytona, there's a whole a driver has to think about on-track.
Watch for yourself to get inside of the head of a driver during this weekend's race, and maybe even keep a few pointers for if you're ever out driving on Daytona yourself.
