on The 21st of November, Alex Wurz put the point and end to his stint in the WEC with a podium at the 6 Hours of Bahrain at the wheel of the Toyota TS040 Hybrid. Little has gone quiet and retirement for the austrian, as they will compete this coming month of January. Alex Wurz held the 24 Hours of Daytona at the controls of one of the Daytona Prototype computer Chip Gannasi. Although this participation in Daytona there is the return of Wurz to the competition, it will certainly be interesting to see to drive in this test.
To the occasion Alex Wurz will be joined by Brendon Hartley, Andy Priaulx and Lance Stroll, in a lineup of pilots for many, many carats and which does not leave place to doubts, despite limited experience in the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona. However, we are talking about a quartet of riders with numbers titles among whom is a double winner of the Le Mans 24 Hours (Wurz), a World Champion of Resistance (Hartley), a three times winner of the World Touring car (Priaulx) and a pilot has been set Williams F1 (Stroll).
The bet Chip Ganassi is not there and in the first prototype of the team remains the quartet that won the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona in 2015. This alignment of drivers is formed by Scott Dixon, Tony Kanaan, Kyle Larson and Jamie McMurray. They all have the objective to defend the title on an edition in which many believed that Ganassi would reduce efforts to the imminent starting of the program of the Ford GT in north America along with drivers Joey Hand, Richard Westbrook, Ryan Briscoe and Dirk Müller. It is clear that Chip Ganassi is going for it all in Daytona.
