The Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring has reached the halfway point, with Action Express Racing running 1-2 overall and in the Prototype class.

Filipe Albuquerque leads overall in the No. 5 Corvette DP, followed closely by Scott Pruett in the No. 31 team car.

Scott Sharp has his Tequila Patron ESM Ligier JS P2 Honda in third position in wet-but-drying conditions.

Contact in Turn 17 between Dorsey Schroeder in the No. 50 Highway to Help BMW-powered Riley DP and the No. 97 Turner Motorsports BMW M6 GT3 driven by Michael Marsal triggered the most recent full-course caution of the race. Both cars were able to continue.

The last hour also saw several Prototype Challenge cars hit trouble, most notably a spin by Misha Goikhberg’s No. 85 JDC-Miller Motorsport car that saw him nose into the front stretch pit wall.

The Russian pilot was able to limp the car around and back to the attention of his crew.

Colin Braun took over the lead in PC from Robert Alon, just prior to the halfway mark, putting CORE autosport on top in class.

Nick Tandy has Porsche in charge in GTLM, driving the No. 911 Porsche 911 RSR, while Corey Lewis has the No. 16 Change Racing Lamborghini Hurrican GT3 at the top of GTD.
