“I think the team did a fantastic job,” said Fisichella. “Considering our starting position was ninth, winning the race today is amazing.”

Added Kaffer: “The whole crew deserves it. Our pit stops and our strategy … we did so many pit stop and driver change practices this weekend. That was the reason (we won) today.”

Renger van der Zande and Mirco Schultis, co-drivers of the No. 8 Starworks Motorsport Martini ORECA FLM09/Chevrolet, scored their second win of the season in the Prototype Challenge class.

“Amazing, isn’t it?” said van der Zande. “I had to fight hard. We came into the pits third and went out first. I don’t think we had the fastest car today, but we won.”

Turner Motorsport teammates Dane Cameron and Markus Palttala, co-drivers of the No. 94 BMW Z4, registered their third win of the season in the GT Daytona class.

The duo inherited the class pole position when the No. 007 TRG-AMR Aston Martin V12 Vantage was unable to start the race due to damage sustained in a crash during Sunday morning’s warm-up.

“It was pretty lucky for us to have traffic between us and the Porsches,” Cameron said. “If there’s anything we don’t want to see it is restarts at a really fast track, late in the race when leading the race.”
