British sportscar ace Guy Smith, has taken the Jim Matthews Riley & Scott into second place in the Daytona Rolex after 2 and a half hours at the wheel.

The 27 year-old started the race, which began at 1.08pm local time, before handing over to Scott Sharp for his first stint in the car. Guy has complained of slight oversteer but is nevertheless pretty happy with the car.

"I started the race, the first time I've done that for a while, which was great but took a bit of getting into. Things were going great until a guy spun right in front of me and I had to take to the grass. That meant I had to do an extra stop so considering we made two stops in total before handing over to Scott, I'm really happy with the result so far."

Of course it's a long way to go but things are looking good so far. We're behind David Brabham in the Ferrari at the moment and the first few hours can be very hard on drivers and cars and often that's when a lot get caught out. We'll just have to keep our heads down, keep out of trouble, and drive as fast as possible."
