Sparco Again On Top In Rolex 24 At Daytona

Sparco is again on the top step of the podium at Rolex 24 at Daytona. After 24 hours race, only 26’’ the gap between Tequila Patron Ligier - Honda prototype and the Wayne Taylor Racing Chevrolet Corvette DP. Scott Sharp, Ed Brown, Johannes van Overbeek, Luis "Pipo" Derani and the Extreme Speed Motorsport crew, win an incredible race after a fantastic comeback, wearing the Sparco Superleggera suits.

Not the only success for Sparco that reached the top step of the podium in GTD class too with Magnus Racing Audi R8 LMS GT3 driven by John Potter, Andy Lally, Marco Seefried and René Rast. For the American-German crew, with Sparco Superleggera suits a victory by 5’’ after 24 hours race.

Volpiano’s brand on podium in Prototype Challenge with the 2nd place for Oreca - Chevrolet prototype by PR1 Mathiasen Motorsport. Robert Alon, Tom Kimber-Smith, José Gutierrez and Nicholas Boulle bring the Sparco Extrema Suit on the podium and took the best lap and the new track record with Tom Kimber-Smith in 1’42’’950.

Hard race for Ford Chip Ganassi Racing with some reliability problems on the all new Ford GT in the first few hours of race, while in Prototype the Ford EcoBoost Riley DP #01 driven by the young Lance Stroll, Alex Wurz, Brendon Hartley and Andy Priaulx conquered the 5th position with 11 laps gap. Unlucky end for Scott Dixon, Tony Kanaan, Jamie McMurray and Kyle Larson which had an accident after 21 hours. At the end, the Ford Chip Ganassi Racing #02 finished in 13th position, 7th in Prototype standing.

Disappointing 6th place for Risi Competizione Ferrari 488 GTE in GTLM. Giancarlo Fisichella, Toni Vilander, Davide Rigon and Olivier Beretta suffered a damage on their Maranello’s car and could not battle for the podium.

First kilometers on race for Turner Motorsport’s BMW M6 GT3. In GT Daytona the Bavarian car #97 driven by Michael Marsal, Markus Palttala, Maxime Martin and Jesse Krohn reached the 6th place with 2 laps gap from Magnus Racing Audi R8, while the twin car by Turner Motorsport had some problems and stopped a lot of time in box.
