I will be out of town for work and will miss this race unfortunately. With D24h coming up I'm sure this will be a fast group with all the practice that's been going on. Good luck all!

Good race everyone! Coen, sorry about the tap in T1 midway through the race. I lost control throttling a little early in the corner. On a side note, I was frustrated that I thought I saved my #77 on the Ferrari, but I apparently missed a step, and apologize I did not have the proper number for tonight's race. It should be all set if I can make Sebring next week, which is a question mark due to a trip to Phoenix this week.

Have a great week, guys! And best of luck to those of you doing the 24h at Daytona!

A race of ups and downs. Happy to have finally qualified higher than 5th. UP.

Managed to run with Cristian in the early laps and even put a little pressure on him. UP.

Bumped him in 3. Down.

Somehow managed to be there when he made a mistake, got past and looked to heading in the right direction. UP.

Immediately dashed my chances at a good finish with a stupid mistake. Too heavy on the pedal after he spun and spun myself into the grass. Down.

Continued downward spiral until I wedged it into the tires in the chicane. Down.

Unfortunately managed to impact Francisco's race while trying to not impact his race. Down.

Daytona is done. UP.

Finished 18th. Down.

Sebring is next. UP.

See you guys there.

Fun race for myself. Thank you Kenny for letting Jean and I by before the last lap to duke it out. Managed to get him at the line for 9th :)

Good race overall. Nice battle with Kenny, Matthew and Francisco in the early laps until I made a mistake and lost my car.

Fortunately I managed to continue fighting for 3rd place. Fun fight with Matthew (when he is calm and not yelling on mic) in the end.

See you on Sebring!

No problem. I wasn't going to improve my position any so no need to impeded someone else's battle.

Despite having been in 3rd position and falling to the 5th with only a few laps remaining, it was a great race. Fights by positions, controversies and frictions made this race a very exciting one. Congratulations to the podium and the rest of the drivers!. See you in Sebring in a week

Well... after a bunch of hours practicing in Daytona (over 500 laps!) I manage to finish in one piece... really enjoyed to fight with Quint, even when losing the 9th place in the last yard! (evidence!) I'm really pleased my performance: no making big mistakes was the best for me.
I learned a lot about the car (this is my second race ever with the GTE),and I hope to keep the pace next week.

I have been very impressed about the race launch this two races (Spa & Daytona), everybody clean and steady, no one doing anything stupid first laps, really really impressive,  proud to race with you guys!

Man some good battles all over the place in that one. I'd like to see us all find a little speed to give Ben some competition. I don't know where to find that second that always seems to be missing.

I would love to have a redo on this one! Late Monday night Kenny pointed out my steering wheel traces were all spiking. tore wheel base down and cleaned the optics and the guts of all the dust bunnies. Completely better but now need to relearn the feel. Good start with team guy leading the way and felt good for a change to be able to run good. Got stuck behind a car and was making a run to get by on the straight coming out of chaicane and BOOM rear wheels off ground into tire wall...fast tow and in last place had good runs after but had to make another pit stop and that killed any hope of a good finish

I probably can't upload that one to Youtube since i streamed it directly to facebook. I could stream future races to youtube instead though.
