The Rolex 24 Hours Of Daytona: Über GalleryS

The 2013 sports car racing season got its start on the banking, looping through Daytona and its mist for 24 hours. Here is your ridiculously stunning über gallery.

These pictures come to us from Trevor Andrusko and Track9 Media. We love his shots every time he covers Grand-Am or ALMS for us, but we're particularly happy with this set. He sent us over 50 pictures and narrowing them down to just over 30 was a real challenge.

He had a good subject to work with. The race was tough on its cars, knocking out all of our diesel-wonderful Mazdas, tearing the front of the Magnus Porsche like an old band aid, and causing at least one high speed blowout.

We live-blogged the whole thing, we became intimately aware of fuel management in a race context, and we saw BMW not really give a crap about their pseudo victory.

But enjoy all of these photos. Click "expand" in the lower right of each shot to see them in full resolution. Oh, and Trevor also sent us over a video of the race start, from the fantastic-sounding #31 Whelen Motorsports Corvette with Eric Curran behind the wheel.

We could listen to this all day.

May big V8s never leave the racing world.
