Post Card from Day 1 at the Rolex 24 at Daytona working in the Paddock

Greetings from Daytona Beach, Florida my second visit here in two weeks, this time for the actual race: the Rolex 24 at Daytona the IMSA 2017 season opener.

This time my role has changed. Not flagging this year somewhere on the inner road course, instead I’m in the paddock working as “spectator marshal” making sure VIP’s and competitors/teams don’t crash into each other. Instead of flags I’m using the whistle a lot.

So far I’m loving this role!

The weather was perfect today, even got a little dunburn. It is supposed to dip into the freezing territory starting tomorrow. But we’ll manage… stay tuned for more.
