The No. 43 YES Network Porsche of Orbit Racing will start from the back of the grid for the 12 Hours of Sebring, after the car's qualifying time was disallowed in post-qualifying technical inspection. Marc Lieb had qualified the car second in the GT class.

Orbit Racing technical director Tim Munday explained: "We're very disappointed because Marc had an incredible qualifying run and we were looking forward to starting second on the grid. Unfortunately, a crack in the wing mount caused the wing to move from a compliant position to a non-compliant position that was unstable. It's sad that our driver who truly deserves to be at the front is sitting at the back. But it's a compliment to Marc's driving skills that even with a broken wing mount, he was able to qualify second."
