Remembering Preston Henn: 1931-2017

In the grand and glorious era of the IMSA Camel GT Series, the cars weren’t the only stars. Drivers – and in some cases, even the owners – were, too. Preston Henn was both, although he is remembered more for fielding cars than wheeling them, primarily during the 1980s.

But he is remembered. Make no mistake about that. Henn died Sunday at his Hillsboro Beach home in South Florida at the age of 86, leaving a multi-faceted legacy as an entrepreneur, self-promoter, self-made millionaire and a champion driver-owner in some of the world’s biggest sport car events.

Ford Chip Ganassi Racing Firing on All Cylinders One Year After First Ford GT Win

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – At this point in last year’s IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship season, Ford Chip Ganassi Racing was struggling.

Though competitive speed was demonstrated, mechanical issues plagued the brand-new No. 66 and 67 Ford GTs through the first few races of 2016. The highest finishing position managed by either car in the first three races was a fourth in class by the No. 67 car, taken at Long Beach.

Mercedes-AMG Rides Hot Hand to Advance Auto Parts Sportscar Showdown

Just three races into its first season of IMSA competition, Mercedes-AMG is already making its mark on the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship.

In November 2016, the German manufacturer announced its intention to enter IMSA’s GT Daytona (GTD) class with a three-car campaign featuring the Mercedes-AMG GT3. The daring move meant Mercedes was joining the ranks of one of the most diverse classes of North American sports car racing, with no less than seven other manufacturers competing on a full-time basis.

Pressure Still on Taylor Brothers Heading to Circuit of The Americas

You have to go back to 2011 to find a team and driver pairing at the Prototype level of U.S. sports car racing that had as hot a start to the season as Jordan and Ricky Taylor have in their No. 10 Konica Minolta Cadillac DPi-V.R in the 2017 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship.

Performance Tech Riding Young Talents to Perfect Start in Prototype Challenge Class

Performance Tech Motorsports team principal Brent O’Neill entered the 2017 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship season with a renewed optimism. After three years of being tantalizingly close to a win in WeatherTech Championship competition, recording four runner-up finishes and 13 podiums in the Prototype Challenge (PC) class in that span, O’Neill spent the second half of 2016 putting pieces in place to not only contend for wins, but the PC-class championship as well.

Two races and two wins later, O’Neill is in position to do just that.
