Magnus Racing Celebrates 10th Year at Rolex 24





Magnus Racing Celebrates 10th Year of Competition at Rolex 24; Webcast to Return

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (January 22, 2019) – When John Potter chose to venture from driver to team owner at the close of 2009, few would have guessed that Magnus Racing would go on to become one of the most decorated teams in all of GT racing throughout their decade of racing. With two class wins at the Rolex 24 at Daytona, a win at the 12 Hours of Sebring, Inaugural Brickyard Grand Prix, and two team championships in the now-titled IMSA Michelin Endurance Cup, the team will arrive for this weekend’s Rolex 24 celebrating its 10th year of racing.

“It’s a huge honor to arrive in our 10th year of racing,” stated Magnus Racing team owner and co-driver John Potter. “I couldn’t be more fortunate to have been surrounded by such an amazing group of men and women through the years, and we’re looking to celebrate a decade of racing with the level of performance we’ve come to expect. Daytona should be a great venue for us, with a strong driver lineup and a great car, and sweetening the experience should be the return of our annual webcast, where fans can join us in the fun.”

A now staple part of the team’s heritage, the annual Magnus pitside webcast will once again return for Daytona. Featuring 24 hours of live coverage from inside the team’s pit stall, the team’s usual combination of live team communications and fun antics will continue, being broadcast live on YouTube and the team’s website. Back for 2019, not only will long-time host Sean Heckman continue for his final year of the stream, but Ryan Eversley will return to join in the fun as well. Eversley last joined the events in 2014, and together the stream promises the same fun as year’s previous, including an on-going fan chat, contests, and strange antics unique to the team.

The live feed can be found at the team’s website,, or via the team’s YouTube channel,

Driving the No. 44 Lamborghini Huracán GT3 EVO, Potter will be joined by full season teammate Andy Lally, endurance teammate Spencer Pumpelly, and mandatory Italian Marco Mapelli as the quartet seek the team’s third Rolex 24 triumph. Following a strong run at the pre-season Roar Before the 24 test, the team showed promise, however as one of the most competitive fields in series history, it’s anyone’s guess just how the race will go.

Practice begins this Thursday, January 24, with the race beginning on Saturday, January 26. Live coverage will begin at 2PM ET on NBCSN, with 24-hour coverage jumping between NBCSN and the NBC Sports app throughout the entire run of the race.
