In Rolex Grand-Am 200 action on Detroit’s Belle Isle this afternoon, the Wayne Taylor Racing team secured the overall victory with the No. 10 Corvette Daytona Prototype thanks to the combined driving efforts of Jordan Taylor and Max Angelelli. The race itself was packed with collisions and yellow flags, but the No. 10 car experienced a flawless race, with no issues, posting a best lap time of 1:28.591 around the 2.35 mile road course.
22-year-old Jordan Taylor, who is also a driver for the Corvette Racing team, won the GT class last year in a Camaro GT.R. He also competed in his first 24 Hours of LeMans last year, just days after the victory, and will doing the same this year, but enjoy a little more down time between events this time around.
Meanwhile, Jordan’s older brother, Ricky (who is only 23 himself), placed fifth in the No. 90 Spirit of Daytona Corvette Daytona Prototype with Richard Westbrook, also a driver for Corvette Racing, with a best lap time of 1:29.251. The team experienced an early mishap with a rear-end collision that required repairs. Ricky Taylor will also be participating in the 24 Hours of LeMans in a Corvette C6.R, but for the Larbre Compétition team, rather than the Corvette factory team.
Both Ricky and Jordan are sons of the Wayne Taylor, race team owner, and former Grand-Am racing champion.
