The 2016 edition of the iRacing 24 Hours of Daytona is set for the weekend of January 23-24.  The event marks the first anniversary of iRacing’s popular driver swap/team feature that saw more than 1850 sim racers take a turn at the wheel in the ‘round the clock event – and scores more participate as team managers, crew chiefs and spotters.

Incident Limit: None in endurance races (there will be no max)
