Porsche continues dominating long distance classics. Last weekend Action Express Racing secured victory at the 24 Hours of Daytona with a Riley prototype powered by an independently-developed V8 based on the Cayenne. This marked the 22nd overall win for Porsche at Daytona. Sharing the cockpit were Joao Barbosa (Portugal), Terry Borcheller (USA), Ryan Dalziel (USA) and Mike Rockenfeller (Switzerland). In the GT class, two Porsche 911 GT3 Cup racers, fielded by TRG/Flying Lizard Motorsports as well as the TRG squad, brought home second and third.

Race legend Hurley Haywood (61) contested the last race of his active career at the wheel of a Brumos-Porsche. With five overall victories to his credit, Haywood is the record winner in Daytona. The American achieved all five successes in Porsche race cars.
