[Daytona 24 Hours] Eliseo Salazar finishes eight

Eliseo Salazar Daytona 24H

An impressive showing was displayed by Eliseo Salazar and his teammates (Derek Deboer, Kriss Wilson and Max Riddle) in the TRG Aston Martin N°009 at the Daytona 24 Hours where they finished in the eight position in the GTD class. The overall was won by Chip Ganassi Racing drivers Kyle Larson, Jamie McMurray, Tony Kanaan and Scott Dixon. The GTD category was earned by Dominik Farnbacher, Ben Keating and Al Carter with a Dodge Viper.

“It was a great physical effort, and could not lose concentration for the large number of cars that had. Having an incident was very easy “I slept only two hours.” said Salazar who added, “We lost 21 minutes in the pits repairing the failure. After that, my partners Riddle and Deboer handled their last shifts to a more conservative strategy, and in the last 30 minutes, the team decided that I closed the race. I went to eighth in the last two minutes of running, passing a Viper. It was really fantastic. Since only on Wednesday, when I was in Santiago, I received the call to run. It was a car that I had never driven and the most powerful Aston Martin have been made to compete. We were the best representatives of the brand and a top ten finish is something that fills me with joy. It’s my second best result here. ”
