It’s often said that winning the Rolex 24 at Daytona can be a once-in-a-lifetime experience. But winning it twice, in the same year, is a feat that had only happened twice before in the race’s 51-year history.

That was until last week when CORE autosport-prepared cars claimed victories in both the GT Le Mans and Prototype Challenge classes in the historic inaugural round of the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship.

Teams competing in this weekend’s TUDOR United SportsCar Championship season-opening Rolex 24 at Daytona could be in for a late-race surprise, should they be deemed to have not shown their full hand in the run-up to the around-the-clock endurance classic.

IMSA has put into place a new rule that effectively penalizes a team or manufacturer that is found to be sandbagging, with a minimum stop-and-hold plus five-minute in-race penalty for anyone displaying a level of performance beyond the expected result.
