When you look at the fastest times below from the morning warm-up – you may have to take a second look. Yes, the GTLM cars were faster than the prototypes as rain hit Canadian Tire Motorsport Park this morning.

Corvette Racing topped the timing sheet with 1-2 result – Jan Magnussen leading Tommy Milner. The pole car from yesterday, the No.93 Viper, was third fastest with Jonathan Bomarito at the wheel.

With rain forecast throughout the day here in Canada, we could be set for one of the most interesting races in recent history.

In the Prototype ranks, Jordan Taylor was fastest for Wayne Taylor Racing ahead of Joao Barbosa – both armed with Corvette DP machines.

In the GTD class, the Porsche pack led the way with Patrick Lindsey leading Ben Barker and Mario Farnbacher.

The race goes green at 2:05pm and is live on Fox Sports 1.
