The Detroit Grand Prix was held this weekend, marking the sixth round of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar. The 1 hour 40 minute race saw only the DPi & GTD’s start and the Acura DPi ARX-05 entered by Meyer Shank Racing finish second on the podium.
In a race that went off without incident, the #60 Meyer Shank Racing Acura DPi ARX-05 crossed the finish line in second place, just 0.398 seconds behind the winners. A one-stop strategy and a strong speed display by Oliver Jarvis and Tom Blomqvist allowed the #60 car to secure their starting position.
Meanwhile, the #10 Wayne Taylor Racing Acura DPi ARX-05, which started third, opted for a two-stop strategy. Despite a superb overtake by Filipe Albuquerque on Richard Westbrook in the final moments of the race, the duo Ricky Taylor / Filipe Albuquerque completed the top 5.
