Alex Riberas ran the team's fastest race lap to that point with a 1:48.676.
Team Seattle-The Heart of Racing is running tenth halfway through the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship Rolex 24 at Daytona.
Piloting the No. 23 Team Seattle Porsche 911 GT America, Alex Riberas, of Barcelona, Spain, started his first stint in second place in the GTD class. This is Riberas' first Rolex 24 so it took a little while for the Spaniard to settle in under race conditions. But, as he finished up his second stint, he ran the team's fastest race lap to that point with a 1:48.676.
Marco Holzer took the car up to mid-night and turned the Team Seattle-The Heart of Racing Porsche over to Ian James (Phoenix, Ariz.) for the early morning double. James brought the car in just after 1 a.m. in eighth as the team proceeded to put on new brake pads.
"My second run was pretty eventful," James said. "We tried a mix of new right side tires, with used left sides. That was a nightmare. Then toward the end I was running out of brakes. I'll get back in the car mid-morning."
