Krohn Racing Retires Ligier at Rolex 24



(Daytona Beach, Fla.), January 24, 2015…The No. 57 Ligier JS P2-Judd of Krohn Racing had its Rolex 24 At Daytona race cut short when an engine failure shortly before the six-hour mark caused the popular green-and-blue liveried Prototype car to retire early.


The Krohn Racing team came into the 53rd annual running of the Rolex 24 with high hopes of a podium finish. Frenchman Olivier Pla, development driver of the Ligier chassis, qualified and started the car, as dictated by the rules of the IMSA TUDOR United SportsCar championship series.


The Krohn Racing team completed a total of 172 laps and followed three other Prototype class cars to suffer a DNF (did not finish) in this year’s twice-around-the-clock endure. The team had completed a total of eight pit stops prior to their withdrawal.
