Ricky Taylor and Max Angelelli Win Wet Grand Prix of Miami4/30/2012
Ricky Taylor and Max Angelelli won Sunday's rain-shortened Grand Prix of Miami, while Jeff Segal and
Emil Assentato won in GT to score the first victory for the new Ferrari 458 Italia Grand Am.
Taylor managed to dodge an incident between race leader Richard Westbrook and Enzo Potolicchio to
move from third to first on lap 28, and then led the final 25 of the 54 laps to give the team its 19th
Daytona Prototype victory.
Steady rain fell throughout the event. Conditions continued to deteriorate, leading race officials to halt
the event 52 minutes short of the scheduled distance (2 hours, 45 minutes).
It was the first victory of the season for Taylor and Angelelli in the No. 10 SunTrust Corvette DP. Scott
Pruett and Memo Rojas finished second in the No. 01 TELMEX BMW/Riley, followed by David Donohue
and Darren Law in the No. 5 Action Express Racing Corvette DP.
Segal took the GT lead on lap 41, shortly before what proved to be the final caution period of the race.
Dane Cameron and Wayne Nonnamaker took second in the No. 42 Team Sahlen's Mazda RX-8,
followed by Robin Liddell and Ronnie Bremer in the No. 57 Stevenson Auto Group Chevrolet Camaro.
