CADILLAC ONE, TWO, THREE AT DAYTONA AT HALFWAY

Cadillac Race Notes:

The No. 10 Konica Minolta Cadillac continues to lead at the halfway mark.

No. 10 Konica Minolta Cadillac and No. 31 Whelen Engineering Cadillac change brake pads and discs at midnight.

Three of four Cadillac DPi-V.R race cars on the lead lap.

JDC-Miller Cadillac one lap down due to lengthy pit stop.

All four Cadillac DPi-V.R race cars have led the race.

Renger Van Der Zande, No. 10 Konica Minolta Cadillac DPi-V.R
“The Konica Minolta Cadillac is running like it is on rails. I have not had a car like this here before. I think it is very promising for us. We got the lead of the race and we also went for the Endurance Cup points so we were leading six-hour mark which is also good.”

Juan Piedrahita, No. 85 JDC-Miller Cadillac DPi-V.R
“The JDC-Miller Cadillac is very consistent. We lost a lap on a long pit stop, but I think if we get a caution we will get it right back. The two JDC cars are running really good into the night. I am confident for a good finish come tomorrow afternoon.”

Sebastian Bourdais, No. 5 Mustang Sampling Cadillac DPi-V.R
“We are really struggling with balance as the track temperature has cooled into the night. We have a lot of oversteer and the rear degradation is really high. The car was a lot better during the day when it was warmer. We have set the balance for the end of the race when it is warmer. We have to get through the night in good shape and see what happens.”

Mike Conway, No. 31 Whelen Engineering Cadillac DPi-V.R
“It was a bit tricky my first stint, then my second and third the guys got to work on the pressures and the Whelen Cadillac is good. I was trying to close the gaps to those in front and keep ahead of those behind. I seem to be able to do that. We are solid second or third right now depending on where the strategy plays out. We are letting the car and the race come to us at the moment.”
