Daytona 24 Jam: Wayne Taylor Cadillac cetak kemenangan kontroversial

Legenda NASCAR, Jeff Gordon menjadi juara balapan Daytona 24 Jam bersama rekan satu mobil Cadillac #10 tim Wayne Taylor: Taylor bersaudara – Ricky dan Jordan, dan Max Angelelli.

Mobil Cadillac DPi-V.R #10 milik tim Wayne Taylor Racing berhasil menyelesaikan balapan 24 jam di posisi terdepan, mengungguli rival mereka, Action Express Racing – yang juga menggunakan mobil Cadillac, dengan jarak 0,5 detik.

Sisa 20 menit, mobil WTR Cadillac dikemudikan oleh Ricky Taylor dan berada di posisi kedua di belakang Filipe Albuquerque saat balapan kembali dilanjutkan usai periode Safety Car ke-21 dan terakhir.

Kemenangan kontroversial

Taylor berhasil memangkas jarak dengan pemimpin lomba dan melakukan manuver oportunistis di tikungan pertama saat balapan menyisakan empat putaran lagi.

Hidung mobil WTR bersampingan dengan bagian belakang mobil Action Express, dan saat Albuquerque mencoba menikung, keduanya bersenggolan. Albuquerque melintir dan posisi pimpinan balapan diambil alih oleh Taylor.

Taylor memimpin balapan dengan jarak keunggulan empat detik, namun Albuquerque masih berambisi dan terus menekan pembalap WTR itu di sisa balapan.

Usai balapan, Jordan Taylor berkata: "Saya lega karena beberapa kali kita sering berdekatan.

"Adik saya akhirnya berhasil merebut kemenangan itu hari ini."

Kedua mobil Cadillac berhasil menjauhi rival-rival mereka saat trek kembali dalam kondisi kering pada siang hari Minggu.

Mobil Riley-Gibson MK30 LMP2 #90 milik tim Visit Florida sempat bisa bersaing dengan dua mobil terdepan saat balapan masih dalam kondisi basah. Namun mereka kewalahan menyamai laju kedua mobil Cadillac begitu trek mulai kering kembali.

Saat melintas garis finis, mobil yang dikemudikan oleh Marc Goosens, Renger van der Zande, dan Rene Rast itu tertinggal satu putaran di belakang mobil pemenang.

Kuartet pembalap Extreme Speed Motorsports dengan mobil Nissan-Onroak DPi, Brendon Hartley, Scott Sharp, Ryan Dalziel, dan Pipo Derani menempati peringkat keempat, terpaut tiga putaran di belakang mobil WTR.

Ford berjaya di GT

Di kategori GT, Ford berhasil menjadi kampiun balapan usai memenangi pertarungan sengit di kelas GT Le Mans. Pembalap Ford GT #66, Dirk Muller, harus berusaha keras menjaga posisinya dari serangan dua mobil di belakangnya, Porsche dan Ferrari.

Patrick Pilet yang mengemudikan mobil tim pabrikan Porsche 911 RSR bersama Frederic Makowiecki, dan Dirk Werner, terus menekan mobil Ford di depannya sepanjang paruh akhir balapan. Namun, di putaran terakhir, Pilet justru mendapatkan serangan dari James Calado yang mengemudikan mobil Ferrari 488 GTE dari tim Risi Competizione.

Pembalap Porsche itu akhirnya berhasil menjaga posisi runner-up setelah unggul tipis – 0,091 detik – di depan Calado.

Di kelas GT Daytona, tim Alegra Motorsports Porsche berhak meraih trofi juara berkat usaha Michael Christensen, Daniel Morad, Jesse Lazare, dan duo ayah-anak, Carlos dan Michael de Quesada.
