If you have the funding, there is no need to market yourself yet. You can start marketing yourself after you've accomplished some solid results in pro racing. Here's how to start...

Step 1: If you don't have a pro license, application information is HERE.

Step 2: Find a rental ride. Look HERE.

Step 3: Find a driving coach to help get you up to speed in these cars. Start looking HERE.

If I were you, I would do several races in a Koni Challenge RWD GS car. If you are OK with the car and feel like you can take a big step up from there, that's when you start looking at available GT seats in Rolex. A few clean races in GT and it would be easy to secure a seat for the 24 Hours of Daytona. If you have the funding.

Be aware that each of these is a pretty big step up. Depending on your previous experience, you may be on a very steep learning curve for awhile!
