Corvette Dps At Laguna Seca: Chevrolet Regains Prototype Engine Manufacturer Lead

Jordan Taylor and Ricky Taylor gave the Corvette Daytona Prototype program another podium finish Sunday at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, moving Chevrolet back into the lead of the Engine Manufacturer championship standings for the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship.

The two brothers drove the No. 10 Wayne Taylor Racing Corvette DP to a runner-up finish - their third such result in four rounds of the inaugural TUDOR Championship.

"Congratulations to Ricky and Jordan Taylor, and Wayne Taylor Racing on today's runner-up Prototype finish," said Jim Lutz, Chevrolet’s Program Manager for Corvette Daytona Prototypes. "Given the difference in performance between the Corvette DPs and the rest of the field, this is an outstanding achievement and moves Chevrolet back into the lead of the Prototype Engine Manufacturer championship."

Unofficially, Chevrolet now leads the category by one point.

Action Express Racing’s Joao Barbosa and Christian Fittipaldi placed fifth in the No. 5 Corvette DP. All four Corvette DPs entered led the race at one point. The No. 90 Spirit of Daytona entry of Richard Westbrook and Michael Valiante led the first 26 laps, and Marsh Racing’s No. 31 Corvette DP of Eric Curran and Boris Said led just prior to the race’s midpoint.

The next round of the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship is the Chevrolet Sports Car Classic presented by Metro Detroit Chevy Dealers on May 31 from The Raceway at Belle Isle Park.


"That was as good as we could have done. We knew coming in here the P2s were going to be strong. Going on that out lap, I knew that was where they struggled and we had to make the most of it. We made a move around the No. 90 and the No. 5 and got the lead; we were able to stretch it but as soon as we made that last stop, we were saving fuel all the way to the end and I think we were the only Daytona Prototype to do that. We should be happy with a second-place here, and good points for the rest of the season."


"We didn’t expect to beat the P2, but it's a really good points day. Jordan did a great job. The team did a great job making the changes overnight - really transformed our car. We’ll go on to some of the strong tracks for us and I think we are in a really good position. We did some mechanical things to the car, and went back to what we knew from last year and the car was really, really strong."
