2016 Sunoco Whelen Challenge winner Jonny Adam is the seventh in a long line of worthy winners, and, just like those before him, went on to impress out in the Rolex 24 At Daytona. Although not leading the standings all season, Jonny pulled it out of the bag mid-season during his British GT rounds at Spa where he stormed into the lead ahead of nearly 100 other racers. He lost the lead at the next round to Alexander Sims, but then during the final British GT round at Snetterton he secured enough points to crown him the 2016 Sunoco Whelen Challenge winner and, at the same time, bag the British GT Championship title with Andrew Howard for Beechdean AMR’s GT3 team – a bumper year for the talented Scot! Watch as he takes on the Action Express run #31 Whelen Corvette Daytona Prototype at Daytona with team mates Eric Curran, Dane Cameron and Simon Pagenaud and see how the race pans out. Follow his incredible journey out in America, racing in the Rolex 24 At Dayona on Motors TV this weekend!

2016 Sunoco 200 Challenge winner Paddy McClughan is our fifth winner of the prize drive after competing all season in the Radical Sprint Championship. Although he didn't go on to win his Championship, he racked up vital fastest lap and pole position points throughout the season, which became essential for him to win the Sunoco 200 Challenge win! His prize was a race seat in the No.16 Racers Edge run Sunoco liveried Mustang 302R Boss in the BMW Performance 200 - the 200 mile long race that takes place on the Friday before the Rolex 24 At Daytona race. See how Paddy gets on during his American race debut on Motors TV this Saturday.
