Daytona Beach. The new Porsche North America team 911 RSRs are second and third at the four-hour mark of the Rolex 24 at Daytona. The race was stopped for almost an hour when a GTLM Ferrari and a Daytona Prototype collided and spread debris onto the track.

Patrick Pilet (France) has the No. 911 in second place in the GT Le Mans class in the car he is sharing with Nick Tandy (Great Britain) and Richard Lietz (Austria). Right behind him in third is the no. 912 being driven by Michael Christensen (Denmark) in the car he co-drives with Patrick Long (Playa del Rey, Calif.) and Joerg Bergmeister (Germany).

GT Daytona class

The Porsche 911 GT America continue to run near the top of the GT Daytona class, with the No.30 MOMO NGT Porsche and the No.58 Snow Racing Wright Motorsports Porsche both taking the lead at different times during the first four hours.

Currently, Madison Snow (Lehi, Utah) is running in second place in the no. 58, with Porsche Junior driver Connor De Phillippi third in the No.73 Park Place Motorsports Porsche, and Henrique Cisneros (Miami, Florida) fourth in the No.30 Porsche.

The No. 27 Dempsey Racing Porsche detected an oil leak and came to the garage area for evaluation. The team could not work on the car during the red flag, so they are just starting to diagnose the problem and will decide how to proceed. Marc Lieb (Germany)/Patrick Dempsey (Malibu, California)/Joe Foster (Suwanee, Georgia) and Andrew Davis (Athens, Georgia) are the drivers.
