Quester M1Notable race entries from around the world and two days of productive testing this week by several top competitors on the 3.56-mile Daytona International Speedway (DIS) road course point to a competitive and star-studded third edition of the Historic Sportscar Racing (HSR) Classic 24 Hour at Daytona presented by IMSA, November 8 - 12.

The official entry list for next month's Classic 24 Hour at Daytona presented by IMSA is scheduled to be unveiled early next week, but HSR can already confirm several notable racing machines and legendary drivers recently signed up for the day-long race for vintage and historic race cars from the last half century. Legendary BMW racing icon Dieter Quester has unveiled pictures of his race car of choice for his return to the Classic 24 Hour at Daytona. After running a BMW-based Alpina B6 GT3 in 2015's most recent running of the Classic 24 Hour, Quester's ride for next month's race is a BMW M1 "Procar" adorned in Red Bull colors in a livery similar to the one that the Alpina carried.

Quester raced M1 BMWs in the prime of his career in Group 4 and Group 5 competition, the 24 Hours of Le Mans and in the original BMW M1 Procar Championship from 1979 - 1982. He was also instrumental in the test program to develop the car, which gives the M1 a special place among the generations of high-performance BMW machines Quester has had the privilege to drive and race.

Luca Riccitelli co-drives the M1 with Quester at the Classic 24 Hour. They previously drove together in the 2000 Rolex 24 At Daytona where they joined three other drivers in giving Red Bull a second-place GTU-class finish. Riccitelli also co-drove to a GT class victory in the 1999 24 Hours of Le Mans.

In addition to Red Bull and Fritz Wagner, who is preparing and running the BMW through Wagner M1, Quester's Classic 24 Hour effort is being supported by Drexler Automotive, Goodyear Germany and TIBOR.

The HSR Classic 24 Hour at Daytona debuted in 2014 as a tribute race to the internationally famous Rolex 24 At Daytona, which has been run on the 3.56-mile road course at the World Center of Racing for more than half-a-century. 

The HSR Classic 24 Hour gives the magnificent racing machines that were driven to glory at Daytona in the last few decades another chance to shine on the high banks. At the same time, HSR's competition class structure also gives some race cars that never had a chance to race at Daytona in their prime a chance to make their own history in the Classic 24 Hour. 

A true endurance race in its own right, the Classic 24 Hour features six period-correct Run Groups racing in succession for a full day and night. Each Group takes to the track four times in total in a non-stop, 24-hour spectacle that is as close to the real thing as you can get.

The grand prizes at the end are custom-made and HSR Classic 24 Hour at Daytona-specific B.R.M. Chronographes watches that are presented to the overall winner of each Group.
