Tomy Drissi Thrilled With Rolex 24 at Daytona Podium

“This was as exciting as it gets!,” exclaimed Tomy Drissi following Sunday’s finish of the Rolex 24 at Daytona at Daytona International Speedway in Daytona, Florida. “It was full on for 24 hours. And it was truly a team effort… everyone, the engineers, the crew members… all the drivers, everyone committed everything they had to keeping the No. 16 SpongeBob -Sponge Out of Water / Autosport Designs / Southwest Realty Advisors prototype moving to the front. It was incredible.”

The weekend started off with Johnny Mowlem putting the car on the class pole. Johnny locked up the pole position in the final lap of Friday’s qualifying session turning in a blistering 1:42.318 time while averaging 125.257 mph. The car started Saturday’s race 12th overall on the grid.

On race day, the car, crew and drivers were all in lockstep and launching an all out attack on the Prototype Challenge field. At one point, the team fell 11 laps back. Undeterred, the team fought back and when the checkered flag dropped, Martin Plowman was streaking across the finish less than one minute behind the leader to secure the second step on the podium.
