Alliance Autosport Announces Daytona 24 Hour Driver LineupAlliance Autosport
Alliance Autosport is pleased to announce their 2012 Rolex Daytona 24 Hour driver lineup. Scott Rettich, of Camden Ohio, will be making his fourth career Grand-Am Rolex GT start and his second Rolex Daytona 24 Hour start. Scott has won two SCCA National Championships and three SCCA Pro Racing Championships in the last two years and will be looking to perform well in his third Rolex GT start with Alliance Autosport. Joining Scott behind the wheel of the #12 Porsche GT3 Cup will be Matt Schneider, of Lexington Kentucky. The SCCA Pro Racing Formula Enterprises race winner will be looking to build on the successful run he had co-driving with Scott in the last round of the 2011 Grand-Am Rolex GT Series at Mid-Ohio with Alliance Autosport.
Darryl Shoff, of Reading Pennsylvania, will be making his Grand-Am Rolex GT Series debut. Darryl is a very experienced sports racer driver, but he isn’t new to endurance racing, with a class win in the 12 Hours of Summit Point on his resume. After a successful test with Alliance Autosport during the December Daytona test, Darryl will be a valuable addition behind the wheel. Joining Darryl behind the wheel of the Alliance Autosport Porsche will be Hal Prewitt, of Miami Florida. Hal has competed in 13 24 hour races around the world including 2 Rolex Daytona 24 Hour races. With a class win and multiple podium finishes in 24 hour races, Hal knows what it takes to compete successfully in endurance racing.
Rounding out the driver lineup will be Jon Miller, of Orlando Florida. Jon will be making his Rolex Daytona 24 Hour debut. Jon has finished on the podium multiple times in The Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge Series GS class, winning at New Jersey Motorsports Park, and leading the GS field at Daytona. Jon has a huge amount of experience at Daytona competing in GS, ST, Spec Miata, and Spec Racer Ford just to name a few.
“We have a very strong driver lineup,” stated Alliance Autosport Team Manager Suren Tchobanian. “Each driver has competed successful in endurance races in the past and our drivers have accumulated many race wins and championships. I am very excited to have them be a part of our team for the 50th Anniversary! Coming off a successful Roar Before the 24 Test that saw us run consistent low 1:51s in race trim on the final day of the test, I am confident that we have the car and the driver lineup to compete with the best!”
Alliance Autosport would like to thank the follow sponsors and supports for being a part of their Rolex Daytona 24 Hour effort: PDI Communication Systems, Florida Citrus-Drink Florida Orange Juice, Coastal Technical Services LLC, and The RAACE Foundation.
