With an entry of more than 60 cars in Florida, traffic and interruptions were always likely to be key to the way the 12 Hours of Sebring unfolded. Indeed, the event lived up to its reputation as a long, tough contest and the action
provided plenty of drama and surprises. After emerging at the front of the field at around the seven-hour mark thanks to a string of faultless stints, Simon Pagenaud handed over to team-mate Johannes van Overbeek who fell back from the lead with 3¾ hours to go following a tangle with a GT runner. The incident dropped the N°2 HPD prototype to eighth overall. It was still in the race, however, and the Frenchman completed the remaining 2½ hours to battle back to fifth spot at the chequered flag.
