A Look through the Eyes of a Corvette Driver at Rolex 24 at Daytona
It is hard to imagine what it is like driving a race car at speeds over 200 mph around a gigantic track while other cars are trying to aggressively hunt you down and you are attempting to do the same to them. Many of us dream about what it might be like to sit behind the wheel in a high stakes race, but few of us ever get the chance to experience it first-hand.
Luckily, we live in the year 2014 and GoPro cameras were the hot Christmas gift this year, so we are happy to see that /DRIVE, Corvette Racing driver Tommy Milner managed to nab one in his “white elephant” exchange (complete speculation) and put it to good use.
Milner recently competed in the Rolex 24 at Daytona and recorded a leg of the 24-hour endurance race on his GoPro for the world to see. Sit back and enjoy Milner gearing up, making the driver switch during a pit stop, and getting behind the wheel of this gorgeous-sounding Corvette. And don’t worry; we don’t know what any of those buttons do either.
