ONLY ONE FULL COURSE YELLOW SO FAR AT SEBRING INTERNATIONAL SPEEDWAY AS TEAMS GET INTO THEIR RYTHM FOR THE 12 HOUR RACE
The Vasser Sullivan team Lexus has been in control so far in GTD with the #14 currently leading.
Daniel Morad promoted to second place on the grid following the disqualification of initial pole sitter #19 GRT Grasser Racing Team had a good stint although falling to fourth place but surely simply settling into the team’s strategy. Michael De Quesada took over from Morad and are currently shown in seventh position.
Zach Robichon, who had misfortune in yesterday’s qualifying, started toward the back of the GTD field and had a strong stint at the wheel of the Motul Porsche 911 GT3 climbing up to occupy sixth place when he came in to be replaced by Lars Kern. Currently, Kern is still behind the wheel and is shown in fourth place 18 seconds behind Corey Lewis(#1 Lamborghini Huracan GT3).
The Heart of Racing had Ian James start the race and they have been running very competitive lap times. Ross Gunn is currently driving the car and occupies sixth place as Roman De Angelis has yet to drive.
Kenny Habul took to the green flag for the SunEnergy1 Racing Team and completed one stint before handing the car over to Mikaël Grenier. Occupying 12th place in GTD at the time, Grenier put in a great stint and made up several position within an hour. Unfortunately, as he came to refuel and get fresh Michelin tires, the team lost 2 laps due to unknown technical difficulties. They are currently in 11th place.
After three hours, #16 Porsche 911 GT3 R of Wright Motorsports with Patrick Long is first, #14 Lexus RC F GT3 of Vasser Sullivan is second with Kyle Kirkwood and third is Corey Lewis in the #1 Lamborghini Huracan GT3 Paul Miller Racing.
