USC Petit Le Mans – Porsche wins overall, Pilet champion LM GT

Joao Barbosa and Christian Fittipaldi won the USC title at the wheel of the No. 5 Action Express Racing Corvette DP where they competed with Sébastien Bourdais to Small Le Mans, the USC final interrupted several times and shortened to less than eight hours due to heavy downpours at the Road Atlanta circuit (Georgia). If the champions finished first in the Prototypes, they only took third place in the general classification.

Les conditions de course ont profité à la Porsche 911 RSR n°911 de Nick Tandy, Patrick Pilet et Richard Lietz qui ont remporté la victoire au classement général devant la BMW Z4 GTE de Edwards-Luhr-Klingmann. Le Français décroche le sacre dans la catégorie GTLM, son coéquipier ayant manqué trois courses cette saison.

The pilots Team Corsa Bill Swwedler, Townsend Bell and Jeff Segal took the GTD title, although the class victory went to the Park Place Motorsports Porsche of Pumpelly-Lindsay-Snow. Tom Kimber-Smith, Andrew Palmer and Mike Guasch won in PC on the Oreca 09 FLM of PR1/Mathiasen.
