After what can be only described as a great start in the perfect weather, a hail of rain brought with it a series of wrecks do to the onslaught of wet weather. In the first 2 hours of the race there were 2 separate weather fronts that soaked the circuit making the track treacherous to navigate. It caught out the leading Audi and Toyota. The # 3 Audi driven by Albuquerque, Bonanomi and Jarvis was retired. Leaving the two other remaining Audis to dual the Porsches’ and Toyotas’ for the overall win.
