HOMESTEAD, Fla.—Qualifying for Sunday’s Grand Am Rolex Grand Prix of Miami as wet track conditions made all-out fast laps impractical. Instead, some teams used the block of track time to test wet set-ups in case the rain returns Sunday.
The weather isn’t bad enough to stop tomorrow’s race, nr this afternoon’s Continental Tire Sports Car Series Kia 200; the track is too wet for a meaningful qualifying competition, but fine for racing.
The TRG Porsches were the first cars to test the wet conditions, followed by the Shank Riley-Ford. Eventually more cars ventured out, possibly worried that if the race was rainy, their cars wouldn’t be competitive. Still fewer than a dozen teams sent their cars out.
The Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge Kia 200 starts at 2:45 p.m. EDT. The Rolex Grand Prix of Miami starts at 1 p.m. Sunday, April 29.
Tickets to the race weekend can be purchased through the Miami-Homestead Speedway website.
The Rolex Grand Prix of Miami will be televised live on Speed TV starting at 1 p.m. EDT, Sunday, April 29. The CTSCC Kia 200 will air on Speed on May 12 at 12 noon EDT.
