Challenging conditions created a unique racing landscape for the Lamborghini Squadra Corse teams and drivers as they entered the evening hours of the Rolex 24 At Daytona.
Wet conditions and poor visibility generated incremental full-course caution periods and left very little room for error in the deep, ultra-competitive GTD class of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship.
In their first Rolex 24 effort, the No. 11 entry of GRT – Grasser Racing Team, continued to pace the Lamborghini Huracán GT3 fleet. The team cycled through all four drivers and currently maintains seventh position in class.
Just minutes into the eighth hour, the No. 16 of Change Racing went off track at the Bus Stop and made contact with the wall, causing a full-course caution period and forcing the team to retire from competition.
Full-Course Caution Periods: 8
Weather: Sporadic, light rain is expected to continue until approximately 10 a.m.
Current Track conditions: Wet; track temperature of 52 degrees Fahrenheit.
