BMW works driver Tom Blomqvist has been forced to withdraw from next weekend's Rolex 2 at Daytona because he failed to obtain his visa in time.

Blomqvist was set to share the #25 BMW M8 GTE with Connor de Phillippi, Philipp Eng and Colton Herta, however, his place will be taken by Augusto Farfus, who will make his fifth Daytona start with BMW.

A BMW statement said Blomqvist is expected to rejoin its IMSA line-up from the following round in Sebring onwards.

"I'm very disappointed that I am unable to race at Daytona," said Blomqvist.

"I will be back home with my fingers crossed for the whole team and looking forward to returning at Sebring."
