2011 Daytona Bike Week

Speed is a key part of Daytona Bike Week, as epitomized at the prestigious Rolex Daytona 200 race.

The Rolex Daytona 200 is one of the most prestigious races on the AMA schedule, and is thus named because the fastest qualifier traditionally receives a brand new Rolex for his (or her) speed.

With speeds approaching 200 mph aboard finely-tuned 1,000 cc sportbikes, this 57 lap race covers the 3.51 mile road course at breakneck pace.

There are also 600 cc races which cover Daytona's famous banked track.

Word to the Wise

Get a pit pass, and watch mechanics work on bikes while famous racers buzz past on scooters.
