After ten hours of racing at the 24 Hours of Daytona, the first IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship meeting is led by the Cadillac DPi-VR / Chip Ganassi Racing of Kevin Magnussen, Renger van der Zande and Scott Dixon.

The # 01 crew is 9.3s ahead of the Acura ARX-05 DPi / Wayne Taylor Racing of Ricky Taylor, Filipe Albuquerque, Alexander Rossi and Helio Castroneves. The # 10 lost some time in the 5th hour due to a problem with the rear right tire.

There are three other DPi in the leader’s lap with the Cadillacs entered by Ally Cadillac Racing and Whelen Engineering Racing, and the Acura / Meyer Shank Racing by Olivier Pla. The Mazda is a head turn.

The Cadillac DPi-VR / Mustang Sampling Racing of Loïc Duval, Tristan Vautier and Sébastien Bourdais has been stopped for a long time. Vautier was hit by Jan Heylen’s Porsche / Wright Motorsports. The Belgian was unable to receive instructions from the team and the spotter because the 911 GT3 R had a radio failure.

The start of the 11th hour took place under neutralization mode following an onset of fire in Frankie Montecalvo’s Lexus RC F GT3 / Vasser Sullivan.

On the LMP2 side, the Oreca 07 / Tower Motorsports of Matthieu Vaxiviere, Timothé Buret, Gabriel Aubry and John Farano leads the discussions with 1.45 minutes ahead of the Oreca 07 / WIN Motorsport. The Dallara P217 / Cetilar Racing occupies 3rd place.

The TDS Racing team, which took care of the technical part, did everything to repair the car but the gearbox suffered too much. Same bad for the Oreca 07 / High Class Racing. PR1 / Mathiasen Motorsports, which drives Nicolas Lapierre, lost time for a starter change.

Mühlner Motorsports leads the LMP3 class with its Duqueine D08. The Belgian team is one loop ahead of the Ligier JS P320 / Sean Creech Motorsports of Yann Clairay. Third place for the # 74 Ligier JS P320 / Riley Motorsports. The rest of the LMP3 field is off the hook.
