IMSA revises Daytona result
- Audi R8 LMS #45 relegated to second place
- Organizers ask to excuse confusion caused
About four hours after the end of the race, the organizers of the 24 Hours of Daytona (USA) have issued a revised result for the GT Daytona class.
The IMSA revised their original decision to impose a time-penalty on the #555 Ferrari. The #45 Audi R8 LMS of Audi customer team Flying Lizard Motorsports, which had originally been declared as the winner of the race, was moved back to second place. The organisers have pleged all participants to excuse the confusion they have caused.
The Team Flying Lizard Motorsports reserves further action against this decision and would like to comment not before Monday.
Romolo Liebchen, Head of Audi Sport customer racing: “It is unfortunate that the events after the race cast a shadow on a really great race in the Daytona GT class. Probably this race deserves two winners.”
