IT WAS a memorable weekend for Andy Priaulx in the United States despite missing out on the chance to compete in the Rolex 24 Hours race.

‘Daytona is awesome and after spending the last few days there, I can’t wait to get back next year and have a real shot at winning the event. That is my goal for the future,’ said the Guernsey driver.

‘It was unfortunate an accident due to a mechanical problem meant I couldn’t start the race as I was really looking forward to driving the BMW M3 for Turner Motorsport.

‘I went off in practice and it was a pretty big shunt. However, I was not hurt and was able to then enjoy the event from outside the car.’
