GTLM Corvettes looking strong in Petit’s fourth hour

Tommy Milner and Jan Magnussen run 1-2 at soaking Road Atlanta

There was nothing mellow about the yellow Corvette C7.Rs in the fourth hour as the Petit Le Mans field got a long stretch of racing under its tires, after a fractured first three hours.

First Tommy Milner, then Jan Magnussen moved past GTLM leaders Patrick Pilet in the No. 911 Porsche and Wolf Henzler in the Falken Tire Porsche, while John Edwards struggled hard in the wet, and slipped to 30 seconds behind in the No. 24 BMW Z4.

Up at the front, Dane Cameron finally surrendered the Prototype lead to Action Express teammate Sebastien Bourdais, who spent the remainder of the hour trying to stave off the attacks of Jordan Taylor in the WTR Corvette DP. Cameron has handed over to Eric Curran who is gradually making his way through the field.

A minor off-and-on for Robert Renauer in the No. 44 Magnus Racing Porsche was enough to hand GTD lead to Marc Goossens in the formerly troubled No. 93 Riley Motorsports Dodge Viper. Kuno Wittmer in the 007 Aston Martin is a further half a minute behind.
