The No. 5 JDC-Miller Motorsports Cadillac DPi-V.R of Tristan Vautier leads with four hours to go in the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring.

The Frenchman holds a three-second lead over the No. 77 Mazda RT24-P of Tristan Nunez following the latest round of pit stops up front, which has seen multiple leaders battle for the lead.

Simon Pagenaud runs in third aboard the No. 6 Team Penske Acura ARX-05, which could help their sister car win the drivers’ championship.

Felipe Nasr, in the No. 31 Action Express Racing Cadillac, has remained the only championship contender not to his trouble and runs in fourth.

Nasr’s co-driver Pipo Derani is in a must-win scenario, however, in order to take the DPi title.

The No. 3 Chevrolet Corvette C8.R of Antonio Garcia leads the way in GT Le Mans following a routine stop by the then class-leading No. 912 Porsche 911 RSR-19 of Earl Bamber.

Garcia has rebounded following a spin after contact with a LMP2 car earlier in the race.

The GT Daytona class sees an equally hard-fought race, currently led by the No. 63 Scuderia Corsa Ferrari 488 GT3 Evo 2020 of Alessandro Balzan.

LMP2 has continued to be paced by the No. 52 PR1/Mathiasen Motorsports Oreca 07 Gibson, which is currently in the hands of Simon Trummer, who is running 7th overall.

Trummer holds a three lap lead over the competition.
