The 18th annual Petit Le Mans powered by Mazda has been red-flagged for rain and track conditions with four hours and 38 minutes remaining.

The No. 5 Action Express Racing Corvette DP of Sebastien Bourdais leads over Jordan Taylor, with the No. 911 Porsche 911 RSR of Patrick Pilet leading GT Le Mans and running third overall.

IMSA elected to stop the race due to a heavy rain front arriving in the area, with Race Director Beaux Barfield expecting to restart the race within the next hour or so.

“We felt it appropriate to take a pause and let this cell get past us, which I’m confident it will,” Barfield told IMSA Radio. “Once we get the track regained, we are prepared to wait it out and restart this race.”

The clock continues to run while under the red flag.

Prototype Challenge is currently led by the No. 52 PR1/Mathiasen Motorsports Oreca FLM09 of Mike Guasch, with Andy Lally pacing GT Daytona in the No. 44 Magnus Racing Porsche 911 GT America.
