Kevin Magnussen believes the Rolex 24 at Daytona will offer the best opportunity to fulfil his career goal of entering a race alongside his father, Jan, due to its early-season slot on the motorsport calendar.

Magnussen currently races in Formula 1 with Haas, but has spoken before about his ambition to enter a race together with his dad, who spent one full season in F1 before going on to enjoy success in sports car racing with Corvette, taking class victory at Le Mans four times.

Jan Magnussen remains part of Corvette's factory GT racing line-up that enters both the Rolex 24 and the 24 Hours of Le Mans each year, as well as embarking on a full-season campaign in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship.

The goal of racing alongside his father remains strong for Magnussen, who identified Daytona as being the most likely option as opposed to Le Mans, which takes place during the thick of the F1 season.

"We talk about it all the time. It would be a great experience to have together as father and son. I’d love to make that happen," Magnussen told Crash.net.

"Daytona is a good opportunity because it’s early in the year and it’s not at the same time as Formula 1, so you could do that.

"But let’s see. If I get a chance, then I’ll take it for sure."

Were Magnussen to race at Daytona, he would be following in the footsteps of fellow active F1 drivers Fernando Alonso and Lance Stroll, who both entered the 2018 event back in January.
