LAW AND BRUMOS PORSCHE TAKE AN EARLY EXTI FROM 2004 ROLEX 24 HOURS OF DAYTONA


Red Bull Brumos Porsche driver Darren Law watched quietly as the number 58 Porsche powered FABCAR Daytona Prototype made an early exit from one of the most rain soaked Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona endurance contests in recent memory. An electrical gremlin, which had started to show signs of affecting performance early in the race, finally took its toll, and the car was retired on lap150. After qualifying a solid fifth for the race, and showing lap times that consistently put them at the top of the charts, the early retirement was a hard knock for the entire Brumos crew.

"Sure it's a hard thing to take," said a decidedly dejected Law. "We all know there are no guarantees in this sport, but I have to admit that when I looked at the caliber of the team, the equipment and the driver lineup that we had, it was hard not to be pretty optimistic."

Law did get a stint at the wheel, and it was during his drive that the weather at the speedway turned foul.

"About halfway through my stint, we started to get some rain," recounted Law. "Before I knew it, the place was a total skating rink. The team asked me to stay out until our pit window, so I drove around for about half an hour on slicks. It seemed like most of the other teams made a similar call, so there were guys all over the place out there. I finally came in for rains and was able to start and string some solid lap times together."

Although Law now faces an uphill battle to accumulate points for the season championship, he is optimistic about the year to come.

Said Darren, "It would have been nice to get a few points out of Daytona for sure, but we are still a very competitive package, and I'm looking forward to Homestead."

The Grand American Rolex series next travels to Homestead, Florida for the Grand Prix of Miami the weekend of February 26-28.
