We’re Hosting a Party and You’re Invited!

The Rolex 24 isn’t just one race: it’s a long weekend of fun. That’s why we’re hosting a party at Ormond Brewing Company on Friday. It’s an awesome craft brewery just a few minutes north of the speedway, and everybody is welcome–whether or not you have a ticket to the big race. Bring your cool car, since we’ll have a car corral for GRM readers. Meet likeminded enthusiasts. Bench race to your heart’s content. You can even enjoy a free beer, courtesy of the car (and beer) lovers that own Ormond Brewing Company. Hungry? We’ll have food trucks joining the party, too.

Grassroots Motorsports Tours

We’re offering two tours at the 2019 Rolex 24 at Daytona: Our midnight garage tour is famous. Expect hundreds of people, insider access, and even a mention or two on the televised race coverage. Not a night owl? Our GRM Friday Paddock Tour sees many of the same sights at a more palatable hour.

About the GRM Friday Paddock Tour:

It departs from the GRM Experience tent on Friday, January 25 at 10 a.m. There’s no separate ticket, registration, or payment required, though you’ll need a ticket that allows garage access to enjoy the full tour. We can’t guarantee our path, schedule, guests or tour length, as the Paddock Tour changes based on what teams are working in their garages.

Expect these highlights on the GRM Fan Walk Tour:

  • Walk from the tent to the fan zone, seeing a large swath of the Rolex 24 infield on the way.

  • Visit Victory Lane.

  • Visit the garages to see teams preparing for the BMW Endurance Challenge race.

  • Walk on pit road for pre-race ceremonies.

  • Take pictures just inches from IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge Cars.

  • Meet drivers and wish them luck as they belt themselves into their cars.

About the GrM Midnight Garage Tour:

It departs from the GRM Experience tent at midnight on Saturday, January 26 at 11:50 p.m. There’s no separate ticket, registration, or payment required, though you’ll need a ticket that allows garage access to enjoy the full tour. We can’t guarantee our path, schedule, guests or tour length, as the Midnight Tour changes based on what teams are working in their garages.

Expect these highlights on the GRM Midnight Garage Tour:

  • Walk from the tent to the garages, seeing a large swath of the Rolex 24 infield on the way.

  • Visit the famous room where Daytona’s driver meetings occur.

  • Get up-close and personal with teams as they work through the night to keep their drivers, cars, and crew on track during the race’s toughest hours.

  • Hear all the details from industry insiders and special guests.

  • Visit the tire mounting garage, where you’ll see four tires mounted and balanced faster than you can say “race car.”

  • Our special guest for the Midnight Tour will be Honda Racing pro driver, multi-time SCCA Solo Champ and all-around cool guy Tom O’Gorman.

All tours are subject to change at any time without notice.

2019 Grassroots Motorsports Experience at the Rolex 24 Schedule

If there are cars on track, then our big-top hospitality tent is open. We’ll have big flatscreen TVs, comfortable seats, and a respite from the weather. The best part? It’s completely free, no matter what sort of ticket you’re holding. While you’re there, check out our project cars, meet the GRM staff, and show your GRM pride–our staff will be handing out a few Golden Tickets. These magical coupons can be redeemed for behind-the-scenes experiences like a ride in the pace car, a visit to the starter’s stand and more.
