The Wayne Taylor Corvette takes a slender lead into the final 90mins of the 2015 Rolex 24 at Daytona after clinging onto its advantage over the Chip Ganassi Ford following the latest round of pit-stops.

The #02 Chip Ganassi Ford of Scott Dixon looked to have done enough to leapfrog its rivals through the stops but though it exited pit road in front, the Corvette-powered machine - in the hands of Jordan Taylor - quickly pounced on its rival through the horseshoe to regain the advantage.

With 90mins of the race remaining, Taylor has pulled a two second lead out over Dixon, while Sebastien Bourdais in the Action Express Corvette is still in contention in third place, albeit seemingly needing another caution period to negate it 23secs deficit.
