Andy Priaulx is expecting a difficult return to racing in America for the Rolex 24 hour race in Daytona after completing minimal preparation time with his new team Turner Motorsport.

The Guernsey-born driver will race in a BMW Z4 in the GTD class for the championship-winning team Turner Motorsport; but Priaulx is wary of the 3.56 mile Daytona International Speedway circuit.

"It is clear that this track doesn't suit the strengths of our car, however, anything is possible with good teamwork, so let's see what we can achieve," Priaulx said.

The four-time international touring car champion has strong experience at the Daytona track, after finishing second in the GTLM class last year with BMW Team RLL and the 40-year-old remains optimistic.

"Daytona is just one of those races you don't want to miss, as it's a great circuit with a great history. As I haven't yet driven the Turner car, I will spend a few days getting acclimatised to it and team and getting ready for the race. However, after 24 hours I'm sure I will know the car."
