After a record 808 laps were completed, Action Express Racing, driving the dominant Cadillac DPi, spotlighted in the YouRulz article earlier, in the Prototype class, took home its third Rolex 24 at Daytona title.
For beginners in this sport, the Prototype class features the fastest and most technologically advanced cars in North America. They are specifically designed and engineered for the race track and look drastically different than a typical street car. These cars follow either the Daytona Prototype international (DPi) model or the classic LM P2 model.
The next class, the GTLM cars, which are the most elite and fastest GT cars on the track, was won by Ford in the GT model. Ford GT also took down the second place, bringing Chip Ganassi Racing its 200th victory for their organization. Chevrolet (Chevrolet Corvette C7.R) took third in class.
In the final class, GTD (GT Daytona), are enhanced technology. They are also based on production model cars but do not feature the same level of aerodynamics and power as the GTLM class cars. The GTD class consists FIA GT3-spec cars. Mirko Bortolotti in the #11 Lamborghini Huracan GT3 won with 752 laps completed.
The session time was 24 hours, 07 minutes and 45 seconds, and the overall lack of major accidents were primary reasons why there were new records in laps completed and distance.
