Antonio García tested positive during the 24 Hours of Daytona

The Madrilenian, who had already overcome COVID in early January, met a new positive in a PCR during the race, which prevented him from contesting the end of it.


It was asked by Adrián Campos's son, Lucas, as a tribute to his father: "Win this weekend for my father, Antonio. He loved you very much, he is and will always be very proud of you." And said and done. Antonio García won the 24 Hours of Daytona in his category, a victory marked by the personal pain of the pilot, since three weeks before the Florida appointment he lost his grandfather, and last Thursday he found the death of Adrián Campos , an almost father to him.

But in addition to emotional pain, Antonio García also arrived in Daytona after having overcome the coronavirus, which kept him symptomatic isolated for ten days and another four more until the symptoms disappeared. He was discharged on January 8 just in time to comply with the protocols to arrive at the Florida appointment, including a negative test that would allow his trip. He won, as requested by the youngest of Adrián Campos' children, but it was a victory that he could not enjoy or celebrate on the circuit with his team: he had tested positive in a PCR carried out to be able to leave the USA at the end of the race and when his Corvette crossed the finish line, he was already isolated, again, at his hotel.
