IMSA VIR: Corvette’s Taylor and Garcia claim victory over Lexus
P1racenews AI automatic summary:

The 160-minute race started with Jack Hawksworth leading from pole position in the #14 Vasser Sullivan Lexus RC F GT3. There were early disruptions with full course yellows caused by David Brule in the #92 Kelly-Moss with Riley Porsche 911 crashing into the barriers, and Misha Goikhberg burying the #78 Forte Racing Lamborghini Huracan into the tire barrier. Bryan Sellers in the Paul Miller Racing BMW took control of the field after the restart, but Ben Barnicoat in the #14 Lexus quickly went on the attack and passed Sellers, with Jordan Taylor in the #3 Corvette close behind. Taylor attempted to take the race lead from Barnicoat but was unsuccessful. The pivotal moment came during the final pitstops when Taylor managed to jump Barnicoat due to a brief stall in the Lexus driver’s pit exit. Barnicoat struggled to catch up to Taylor and finished two seconds behind him at the finish line. Taylor claimed the victory for Corvette Racing, while Patrick Pilet and Klaus Bachler in the #9 Pfaff Motorsports Porsche finished third overall. In the GTD Pro category, Snow and Sellers in the #1 Paul Miller Racing BMW M4 secured their fifth class win of the year and solidified their position in the points standings.
