Almost 5 hours into the Rolex 24 Hour at Daytona and Fernando Alonso currently leads overall in the Wayne Taylor Racing Cadillac. He is closely followed by the #31 Whelen Caddy, the #77 Joest Mazda and the two Penske Acuras. All of the top cars are within a minute and a half of each other as darkness truly envelops the Daytona road circuit.

It GTLM, Corvette leads Ferrari and Ford, while in GTD the Land Motorsports Audi R8 leads the way.

It is getting quite cool now, and the rain is still forecast to arrive in the morning.

It is going to be an interesting and intense night of competition and we will see where everyone is tomorrow morning in the light (and rain) of day.

More to follow.
