Felipe Nasr leads the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring for Whelen Engineering Racing with one-third of the race time completed.

The Brazilian currently holds a 28-second lead over Mazda Team Joest’s Olivier Pla in second.

Nasr and Pipo Derani have led most of the race so far in their No. 31 Cadillac DPi-V.R, while Eric Curran is yet to take the track.

With the first four hours completed, the first round of IMSA Michelin Endurance Cup points have been distributed based on current positions.

Additional points for the Michelin Endurance Cup will be given out after eight hours and at the end of the race.

Ford Chip Ganassi Racing is running 1-2 in GT Le Mans with Ryan Briscoe ahead of Sebastien Bourdais, while Philipp Eng is third for BMW Team RLL.

Mercedes-AMG Team Riley Motorsports’ Jeroen Bleekemolen has a seven-second lead over Rik Breukers in GT Daytona, with an almost 20-second gap separating them from their closest rivals battling for third.

The race has been green for over 90 minutes, with no race-neutralizing incidents since the Mazda RT24-P’s electrical fire in the third hour.
