Welcome to the Jalopnik Weekend Motorsports Roundup, where we let you know what’s going on in the world of racing, where you can see it, and where you can talk about it all in one convenient place. Where else would you want to spend your weekend?


It’s the unofficial start of the 2019 racing season, which in my opinion, kicks off every year at Daytona International Speedway with the Rolex 24 at Daytona. Some of the best drivers from all over the world—except Tom Blomqvist—converge to take on each other, themselves, and the clock to see who will come out on top. It’s always a blast, and the results are rarely sorted out until the last few minutes. You don’t want to miss this one.

Worth mentioning, we’re also smack in the middle of the second day of competition in what is likely the most famous rally on the WRC calendar, Rally Monte Carlo.

There is also a Formula E race in Santiago, Chile. Complain if you want, but Formula E is the current standard of the world for competitive open wheel racing. The drivers are incredible, the cars look like they were built for another world, and they’re just flat out fun to watch.

My predictions are going to look foolish in a little over a day, but here we go anyway...

DPi: #77 Mazda RT24-P - Oliver Jarvis, Tristan Nunez, Timo Bernhard, and Rene Rast
LMP2: #81 DragonSpeed Oreca 07 Gibson - Henrik Hedman, Ben Hanley, Nicolas Lapierre, and James Allen
GTLM: Porsche #911 911 RSR - Patrick Pilet, Nick Tandy, and Fred Mako
GTD: Team Montaplast by Land Audi R8 LMS: Daniel Morad, Christopher Mies, Dries Vanthoor, and Ricky Feller

Literally every class could be won by half the field. This is one of the best fields I’ve ever seen at the 24.
