HISTORY OF THE 24
The first sports car event held at Daytona was in 1959, sanctioned by USAC and the FIA, and was won by Antonio Von Dory and Robert Mieres in a Porsche. Three years later, a 3-hour event known as the “Daytona Continental” was run as part of the FIA’s International Championship for GT Manufacturers. After two more years, the distance was changed to 2,000 kilometers, and finally in 1966, it was extended to become the twice-around-the-clock classic we know today.
