Passing the # 63 GTD Ferrari 488, Jan Magnussen’s # 3 Corvette slid wide as his left front tire lost grip under heavy load in the downhill sweeper.  That glitch opened the way for Joey Hand, # 66 Ford GT to take the win in the closing stages of the race.  Watch it unfold here!!

Engineering and experience paid off in setting up both cars (including new springs & shocks for # 4)

With cars lapping this short 1.53-mile circuit in under a minute, traffic is everywhere even with entries confined to GTLM & GTD (no prototypes).

Garcia and Magnussen held track position and the lead for 80 % of the race but it proved not enough to close out the win.

# 4 - 2018 C7R-006 @ LRP - Rich Martin  - 05.jpg

Gavin and Milner finished in the top half of the 8 car GTLM field.


Michelin offers several compounds and advice to help engineers and drivers come up with the best race strategy.
