2018 24 Hours of Daytona - Travel Tips

I'm in the process of planning my first ever trip to Daytona. I won't be camping, just flying into Orlando and driving up. Once BMWNA/BMWCCA confirms a BMW corral, I'll probably do that.

I already know to dress for rain, cold, heat, and whatever else, so any other helpful hints on this trip?

I'm interested in going to this as well. I went in 2016 and it was great! Yes, expect all four seasons in the 24 hour period, lol.

The Infield plus Garage access is a must. Walking the track, meeting the drivers/cars and seeing all the action go down in the Pit is an experience.

I want to do the BMW corral this year. Is there a link or posting I can check periodically in order to join the corral?

BMWNA hasn't committed to a corral yet (like every year it seems), but I can't see how they won't since they're introducing the M8. Once the corral is officially announced and registration opens, I'll post the link here.

Where does everyone stay? Near the track or oceanfront?

There was a guy on Turo renting his M4 for $150/day, someone should scoop that up!
