Krohn Racing are gearing up for their 11th consecutive appearance at the Rolex 24-hour race and are targeting their first-ever podium at Daytona.

Team owner and driver Tracey Krohn has suffered a number of near-misses in a decade of racing at Daytona and is determined to beat their best-ever finish of fourth in 2010 in the prototype class.

This year the team enjoyed productive 'Roar before the 24' tests with their new Ligier JS P2 Judd-powered prototype. Krohn will once again partner up with Swedish driver Nic Jonsson, along with Ligier development drivers Olivier Plan and Alex Brundle.

Krohn is delighted with his team package and driver line up and is expecting to challenge at the front end of the grid.

"It's always nice to look more forward than constantly looking more in the mirrors," Krohn said. "This car just stops so well and has such good qualities. I just think that this is a spectacular car and we've made some good choices in the chassis."

Krohn and Jonsson have been racing as co-drivers for the past 11 years and the Swede is confident they will use their experience at Daytona to their advantage.

"Coming into the 24 it's not all about pure speed, it's about getting a consistent car, staying out of trouble, reading the traffic, and staying out of the pits," Jonsson said. "I think we have a good, reliable, solid package with a driver line up that understands endurance racing. We picked drivers that have knowledge and are also great team players."

"I do believe that the Krohn Team Tracy assembled is a fantastic group of guys with both experience and the drive to win. I think we should definitely be in the mix and having the driver lineup we have this year is as good as we have ever had."
