SEBRING, Fla.—After six hours of racing at the 2015 Tudor United SportCar Championship Twelve Hours of Sebring, Scott Dixon—part of the winning 2015 Rolex 24 driving team—in the #01 Ganassi Riley-Ford Ecoboost—the 2014 Sebring winning car—leads Richard Westbrook in the #90 VisitFlorida Coyote-Corvette by seven seconds. Joao Barbosa in the #5 Action Express Racing Coyote-Corvette runs third, seven seconds ahead of Johannes van Overbeek in the Extreme Speed Motorsports HPD ARX-03b.
The fastest car on the starting grid, the #57 Krohn Racing Ligier-Judd, is tenth overall, four laps down, after being held up by spins and collisions.
Tom Kimber Smith in the #52 PR1/Mathiasen Motorsports OrecaChevrolet leads in PC, six seconds ahead of Conor Daly in the Performance Tech Oreca. Kimber-Smith is sixth overall.
GTLM has been exactly the kind of battle it always seems to be. The day started with Porsche-Corvette combat, and Porsche got the better of it as the Corvettes were quick at the start of each stint, but wore out their rear tires too quickly.
The #912 Porsche North America RSR led much of the first few hours; The #17 Falken Tire Porsche led briefly. BMW took a turn at the front, but after six hours it was Patrick Pilet, 11th overall, in the #911 PNA RSR leading Antonio Garcia in the #3 Corvette Racing C7.R by a few seconds, with Patrick Long in the #17 Falken Porsche another few seconds back, and Tommy Milner in the #4 Corvette only half a second back.
