Magnus Racing issued humorous attempt to throw shades at other teams ahead of this weekend’s Rolex 24 Friday.
“Behold! It is Magnus Racing! From the castle of Camelot, chosen team of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, defeator of the boring, Sovern of all GTD!” the team said in a press release.
The accompanying video is done in the style of the “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” a 1975 movie from the British comedy group.
Magnus fields an entry in the GTD class this year and is racing an Aston Martin GT3 from Britain in ISMA with drivers Andy Lally, John Potter, Spencer Pumpelly, and Jonathan Adam. Lally has five Rolex class wins, the most of any driver in the field.
The entire press release is below:
Another poster completely different from a team that’s completely new and different and old and the same but not quite the same as this one is. It’s everyone’s favorite quest: Magnus Racing and the Holy Rolex.
Behold! It is Magnus Racing! From the castle of Camelot, chosen team of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, defeator of the boring, Sovern of all GTD! We have ridden the length and breadth of the land in search of knights who will join us in our court at Daytona. Our purpose, our sacred task, is the Holy Rolex. A blessing! Barfield be praised!
With our trusty steed, the No. 44 Magnus Racing Aston Martin Vantage GT4, we have ridden since the snows of winter covered this land, throughout the kingdom of America to Florida, in our search for the greatest knights in the land to join John Potter, King of Magnus Racing.
The wise Sir Andy Lally was the first to join Potter’s knights, but other illustrious names were soon to follow. Sir Spencer Pumpelly the Brave, and Sir Jonny Adam, the not-quite-so-brave-as-Sir-Spencer-Pumpelly.
They will fight with the strength of many men to acquire the Holy Rolex, and in the name of God, we shall not stop our fight ‘til each car is passed and the Holy Rolex returns to those whom Barfield has chosen!
We hope you shall watch, and pray as we begin this holy quest at the Rolex 24 At Daytona. We begin on Saturday, January 29 at 1:40 PM Eastern, airing live on NBC, and streaming flag-to-flag on Peacock. Our foe are many, but we know we have total, unlimited power based on divine right.
And to our competitors, we fart in your general direction!
