WeatherTech Racing Weathers Problems

WeatherTech Racing Finishes Thirteenth in GTD at Daytona 
Small bolt failure foils strong run
DAYTONA BEACH,Fla. (Jan. 31, 2016) – WeatherTech Racing drivers David MacNeil (Hinsdale, Ill.), Cooper MacNeil (Hinsdale, Ill.), Keen (Charleston, S.C.), Shane van Gisbergen (New Zealand) and Gunnar Jeannette (Salt Lake City, Utah) finished the 54
th running of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Series Rolex 24 Hour At Daytona in 13th in GTD.
The team endured ups and downs early. As the Alex Job-led team was finally able to get its first dry running of the week in the race, they spent the first quarter of the event tuning on the No. 22 WeatherTech Racing Porsche. Once the team had the new Porsche tuned into the 3.56-mile modified oval road course at the World Center of Racing, they swapped the lead all night and into the afternoon. At 1:20 p.m. today, van Gisbergen was in the car when he went into Turn 1 and came on the radio saying that something was wrong in the rear. As he kept going, he got to the infield Turn 4 and the rear wing of the Porsche came loose. This sent the Kiwi into the spin cycle and through the infield. The subsequent repairs cost the team eight laps and a 13th place finish.
