Cadillac Racing teams Action Express and Wayne Taylor Racing are preparing to give the all-new Prototype racecar its second win in as many races in this weekend’s 2017 12 Hours of Sebring.
Wayne Taylor Racing and drivers Ricky and Jordan Taylor, Max Angelelli and Jeff Gordon gave the DPi-V.R its first-ever win in its first competition outing at the 2017 24 Hours of Daytona in January. Wayne Taylor, along with Action Express, will both be looking for victory at Sebring, but will certainly have their work cut out for them. In last year’s running of the 12 Hours, Extreme Speed Motorsports took the overall win in their Honda Ligier JSP2 and will be looking to repeat the result in their new Nissan Onroak DPi.
Jordan Taylor said Wayne Taylor Racing was operating with some unknowns heading to Daytona, but after getting familiar with the new racecar in the first event of the season, they have more confidence.
“We went into Daytona with a few question marks about the new Cadillac,” Taylor said. “We did as much testing and preparation as we could, but you still never know until you’re in race conditions. The Cadillac ran flawlessly for 24 hours, and the guys said after the race it looked like it could go for another 24. So I am very confident in our car heading into Sebring. We had a good test there a few weeks ago and left that test quickest, so I think we are going back with some confidence and momentum from our win at Daytona.”
The IMSA WeatherTech Sport Car Championship Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring will go green on Saturday, March 17th. The race will be televised on Fox Sports 1 starting at 12 p.m. and will run until 11 p.m. A live stream will also be available through IMSA.tv.
