24 hours of Daytona this weekend

This is a special thread, since now I have carreragt10 approval to post his articles from forocoches.com, he'll have me updated whenever he makes a new thread, and I'll post it in sc.net, helping to spread his effort and knowledge. He usually posts great threads, so I'm sure you'll enjoy them, and I want to say him thanks. So here we go.
