TOM'S RACE REVIEW

"It was a tough day. The weekend didn't run too smoothly for us and I think ultimately it cost us in the race. It was a long day out there, but the boys ran a fantastic race, we really didn't have any issues and we ran a very good race strategically. Ultimately we just didn't have the pace. And then with a few hours to go we had damage to the car and the pace dropped off quite a bit and we weren't really able to find any more which was a bit of a shame. It was a typical Sebring 12 hour, super tough, super hot. We just need to try and improve the car for the next time out."
