Christian Fittipaldi wrote yesterday along with colleagues Joao Barbosa and Filipe Albuquerque in the Cadillac number five, the 24 hours of Daytona to his name.
It was Albuquerque that the last stint was allowed to drive away with the Cadillac DPi. With 808 driven rounds, the three immediately for a new record, the previous record stood at 762 units in 1992. Until the middle of the race was a battle between the Acura’s Penske and the Cadillacs of Action Express racing. There, however, came to an end when one of the Penske’s bad luck to count, and the other in a quarrel with a Cadillac came out of it.
Lando Norris sent the United Autosports Ligier with number 23 to the finish line at the 38th place with 91 laps behind the leaders. A flat tire, and a remprobleem hit the car of Alonso, Hanson and Norris, for a moment, halfway, all the way back in ranking . When there was still a koppelingsprobleem and again the same remprobleem were introduced, there could be quite a cross to be made about a good result.
In the GTLM class, it was Ford who, with their two GT’s of Chip Ganassi Racing a one-two scored and in the GTD class was the Lamborghini with our northern neighbour Rik Breukers at the wheel that the victory wegkaapte.
Our countrymen Laurens Vanthoor and Louis Machiels did not sour with a respective sixth place in the GTLM and a thirteenth place in the GTD class.
