And news on the future of Challenge Family in the UK too

Yesterday (Wednesday), I was in Daytona, Florida for the press launch of Challenge Daytona (www.challenge-daytona.com). Taking place in December 2018 at the Daytona International Speedway (www.daytonainternationalspeedway.com), home of Daytona 500 – ‘The Great American Race‘ – the event represents the return of the brand to the North American market.

(You can read more about that launch HERE).

I took the opportunity to speak to Zibi Szlufcik, the CEO of Challenge Family about this new venture. As well as talking about Daytona, we also covered The Championship in Samorin and some exciting news on the future of Challenge Family in the UK.
