Corvette Racing posted the two quickest times in Sunday's third and final day of the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship Roar Before The Rolex 24, with the #4 Corvette Racing Chevrolet Corvette C7.R driven by Oliver Gavin leading the way at 1min 45.915secs.

However, the final practice session was indicative of the variety of the factory-backed competition in the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship GT Le Mans (GTLM) class.

An SRT Viper GTS-R led the session, followed by a Porsche 911 RSR and a Corvette C7.R - with an Aston Martin Vantage not far behind.

Jonathan Bomarito led the class with a lap of 1min 46.496secs in the #93 Pennzoil Ultra entry from SRT Motorsports. Patrick Long was second quickest in the #912 Porsche North America machine at 1min 46.779secs, followed by Antonio Garcia in the #3 Corvette Racing C7.R.

"It's an honor to be amongst this group," Long said. "This is an opportunity that I've hoped to be part of for the past ten years - an all-factory GT team here in the states.

"Corvette has been setting the bar the last few seasons, and SRT has progressed faster than many people expected. We're not sure where the Porsche is going to fit in. Fortunately, Daytona is usually very good for the Porsches.

"We're cautious, because this team is so new. We'll race the race and hope we're still there with two hours to go, and then race who's left."

At the end of the three-day test, Porsche came out on top, with Nick Tandy running 1min 45.564secs in the #911 Porsche North America 911 RSR.

The GT Daytona (GTD) class was paced on Sunday by Markus Winkelhock, who turned in a best time of 1min 48.462secs in the #45 Flying Lizard Motorsport Audi R8 LMS.

It was the third session of the test to be led by the #45 machine, as Winkelhock's co-drivers, Spencer Pumpelly and Nelson Canache Jr. both led earlier in the weekend.

Pumpelly ran 1min 47.981secs in the Friday afternoon session for the quickest time of the test.
