Through two hours of action-packed racing, featuring just seven laps of caution periods, and a sudden lead change right at the end, Joao Barbosa, David Donahue and Alex Gunrey took 1-2-4 in the Daytona Prototype class of the the Grand-Am 200, respectively, at Detroit’s Belle Isle. All of them were driving Corvette Daytona Prototypes, separated by a lone BMW Riley DP piloted by Scott Pruett.
As for the Grand-Am GT calls, the 21-year-old Jordan Taylor (also of Corvette Racing) was able to hold off the rest of the GT class by a mere .04 seconds ahead of second place, while the Corvette Racing team gets ready for the 24 Hours of Le Mans come June 16-17. Call it a warm up for the young Taylor, who will join the Jan Magnussen and Antonio Garcia in the No. 73 Compuware Corvette C6.R in two weeks.
