Following the fifth note to recover Lamborghini who failed at the 6 hours 45 minute mark, Loic Duval of JDC Mirror Motorsport, Kamui Kobayashi of Action Express Racing # 48, Scott Dixon of Chip Ganassi Racing Entry are wonderful All-cadillac battle engaged in three-way. This was a duel when Duval was determined to have jumped a restart and was given a drive-through pit penalty.
Kobayashi defeated Dixon to take the lead temporarily, but Dixon quickly retaliated and began to pull away from the Japanese driver who won the last two Rolex 24s. Following the next stop round, Renger van der Zande took over from Dixon, but abandoned his lead to Kobayashi, who was captured by the GTD car. After the stop of the next round, the lead was 13 seconds.
As a result of Duval’s miscue, Elio Castroneves placed Wayne Taylor Racing Acura ARX-05 in third place at seven hours and then handed it over to fellow IndyCar Ace Alexander Rossi. When AJ Allmendinger passed Felipe Nasr with the # 31 AXR caddy, a similar car from Meyer Shank Racing came in fourth on the restart, but Nasr insisted again after a dozen laps.
While Oliver Jarvis was wrapping down on the Mazda RT24-P, Duval finished sixth, 45 seconds behind the penalty.Following their 14th Tristan Votier, who stopped and took over from Duval, was 65 seconds from P1.
When Kobayashi handed over # 48 Cadillac to Jimmie Johnson eight hours and 40 minutes later, he led Van der Zande 19 seconds, but the gap was 6 seconds after the pit stop cycle shook. Van der Zande hunted down Reed Caddy and began putting pressure on the NASCAR legend.
In LMP2, Starworks Tower Motorsport and WIN Autosport fought a lively duel, but it was Winker Thomas Merrill who had the edge of 45 seconds after Burette scored 10.th Stop. Andrea Fuoco of Dallara of Cetilar Racing and Ryan Dalziel of Era Motorsport also fought a close battle, but almost lapped down. However, Paul Luc Chatin, who took over from Darjeel, went off course on Turn 5 and returned behind the pits and walls.
Müllner Motorsport’s Kenton Koch led the LMP3 ahead of Sean Creech Motorsport’s entry, driving well before bronze-rated driver Lance We’ll See handed it over to former IMSA champion João Barbosa. Stevan Macaria controlled the Mürner machine. The gap was 30 minutes at the end of the 9 hours, but Oliver Askew was third and lapped down at the # 74 Riley Motorsport entry.
Antonio Garcia of the # 3 Corvette C8.R was leading GT Le Mans right in front of his teammate Tommy Milner. Rishi Compezizione’s Davide Rigon remained within 12 seconds of the American car after the restart and was separated from Timo Glock and Jon Edwards by two BMW M8s.
GT Daytona remains a thriller and AF Corse’s Ferrari 488 wrestled with Nielsen Nielsen and Andrea Caldarelli’s Paul Mirror Racing Lamborghini Huracán. They were increasingly chased by two Porsche 911 GT3Rs (Zacharie Robichon of Pfaff Motorsports and Jan Heylen of the Wright Motorsports machine), and Jack Hawskworth piloted the Vasser Sullivan Racing Lexus RC F.
Winward Racing Mercedes-Benz AMG GT3 Russell Ward, Ian James’ Heart of Racing Aston Martin Vantage has become six manufacturers in the top seven spots.
Richard Westbrook’s TF Sports Aston soon began to seek Aston’s excellence from James, passing the HoR car in 7th place at the end of 8 hours and taking almost no time to catch up with Sun Energy 1 Mercedes to reach 6th place. It was.
The stop for the next round was started by Light Motorsport and Halen jumped before the lobition in this pit stop exchange, but neither, and anyone else, as the AF Corse Ferrari has the answer. I couldn’t see it. At the end of the nine hours, the 488, now driven by Matteo Cressoni, led the Paul Mirror Fracan, now piloted by Corey Lewis, by 20 seconds. Halen was another 10 seconds behind while Aaron Teritz moved the VSR Lexus in front of Robition’s Fuff 911.
San Energy made Marcello jump in front of Westbrook, but the previous GTLM star didn’t take long to pull it to the tail of Benz.
The # 19 Grasser Racing Lamborghini has expired on the track due to flames from the engine bay and the fifth full course has turned yellow.
