Petit LeMans 2014: Results – FINAL

Jordan and Ricky Taylor made some history yesterday, becoming the first American drivers to take the overall win- by just 10 seconds!- at Petit LeMans behind the wheel of the number 10 Wayne Taylor Racing Corvette Daytona Prototype.

“It’s a great way to end the year,” Jordan Taylor said in a post-race interview. “We’ve won the last race the last three seasons, and it’s a great trend we hope to continue. My dad (Wayne Taylor) won (at) the first Petit Le Mans, so we’ve always heard about this race. He always talks highly about it, putting it up with Le Mans, Daytona and Sebring, We’ve had the car to beat the last two races, so we’re definitely looking forward to next season.”

The Taylors won the battle, then- but the war 2014 IMSA series championship went to Joao Barbosa and Christian Fittipaldi, who co-drove the Action Express Corvette DP and seemed pretty excited holding a big $300,000 check after the race. “This team was unbelievable since the end of last season,” explained Barbosa. “We worked all winter for the big challenge of the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship. It was a big task for a small team, but we had a great year. We were the only team to compete every lap in all of the races. We had eight podiums in 11 races, three great victories, and the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship and Patrón Endurance Cup – what a great year for Action Express!”

Further back in the field, the Panoz owned DeltaWing team put in a strong showing for 2014, coming in 4th overall with Katherine Legge putting in the fastest lap of the race- and incredible example of efficiency in action, considering the car has less than half the horsepower of the cars around it. (!) Finally, the Mazda SkyActive diesel prototypes sort of kind of made it home– and, I’m sure they’re happy to see a tough 2014 racing season come to a close.

You can see the rest of the results of the 2014 IMSA Petit LeMans, below. Let us know how your favorites did in the comments at the bottom the page. Enjoy!
