CADILLAC ROLEX 24 AT DAYTONA QUOTES AT 12 HOURS

Mike Conway, No. 5 Whelen Engineering Cadillac DPi-V.R, running second:
“I was going into Turn 5 and the rain started. The rain was fallen even harder, some cars went off in front of me so I adjusted. I came in and we put on wets. The Cadillac is quite good, even in the wet. There is some crazy driving going on, so we will keep things clean.”

Christian Fittipaldi, No. 31 Mustang Sampling Cadillac DPi-V.R, running third:
“It was pretty wild at times. I was out on the track for the first caution. We are dealing with some tough conditions, some rain and the traffic. We are focusing on running a pace that the conditions will allow. The Cadillac is good and we adapting to what the track and weather gives us.”

Jordan Taylor, No. 10 Konica Minolta Cadillac DPi-V.R, running tenth:
“At the beginning of the race, everyone was a bit wild at the front. We were the first ones to try double stinting the tires. It may not have been the right time to do it, but now are keeping the tires on for two runs no problem. When that rain came I was supposed to just do a double, but I stayed in for like three hours. The Cadillac is strong. We are in no risk mode. We have strong cars with good reliability and we are staying out of trouble until the sun comes up. I was battling with Dane Cameron in the Acura for a while. I was able to get by and pull a gap. It is going to be a long night.”

Renger Van Der Zande, No. 10 Konica Minolta Cadillac DPi-V.R, running tenth:
“I did three and a half stints. I got a flat tire in to NASCAR four and I could just come into pit lane with no damage. During my last stint, double stinting the tires I was at top speed on NASCAR Turn 2 and got another flat tire. The tire started bouncing and slamming the side of the car and it hurt the radiator and we had to come to the garage and repair it. We have only had one yellow so far in 10 hours of racing, so it will be tough to make-up the laps we lost.”

Tristan Vautier, No. 90 Spirit of Daytona Cadillac DPi-V.R, retired:
“It is a shamed when it is over with 15 hours left. There are a lot of positives. We drove hard and showed some good speed all week in the Spirit of Daytona Cadillac. It was good to make a challenge this week. Everyone did a good job, just bad luck. Nothing we really could control. I had a lot of fun, I really enjoyed driving the Cadillac this week. There are so many strong teams, it is good proper racing.”
