The #5 Cadillac still leads as the sun sets on Sebring

With 3 hours remaining in the 12 Hours of Sebring the battle is on. The #5 Cadillac driven by Filipe Albuquerque holds a slim 4.3 sec lead over the #10 Cadillac with Jordan Taylor at the wheel and it's going to be a sprint to the finish. The #31 Cadillac runs 3rd 2 laps down after an earlier spin, and although they are the fastest of the three Cadillacs, they have no chance barring an accident between the two leaders.

The #66 Ford GT with Dirk Mueller at the wheel hold a 10-sec lead over the #62 Ferrari of Toni Vilander followed closely by the #67 and #68 Ford GTs.

The #33 Mercedes of Mario Farnbacher has led the GTD class from the start and continues to lead the #63 Ferrari with Matteo Cressoni behind the wheel.

The #38 Oreca leads the PC class with future IndyCar driver Patricio O'Ward at the wheel.
