Jalopnik reports that Lucas Ordoñez, winner of Nissan’s first GT Academy, scored a second place finish in the 12 Hours of Sebring.12 hours of Sebring

According to Jalopnik:

During the first hours of the Sebring 12 (officially, the Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring), Signatech Nissan dominated the LMP2 class, at one point leading by 10 laps. Ordoñez was the second man up, taking the controls ahead of the race’s third hour.

After struggling to hit his marks, spinning out and some software problems the team managed to pull out a respectable finish.

With just two hours left, Ordoñez and the team remained off pace, the reoccurring software issues holding it to 10 laps behind Level 5’s Hunter-Reay at the checkered flag. Still, a solid effort from a team that displayed good chemistry among the three drivers at a press conference on Friday afternoon. Neither of the race veterans displayed animosity over their teammate’s rise from couch to racing seat.

Well done Lucas Ordoñez, you are certainly blazing a trail and showing that videos games some serious real world application. Maybe one day we’ll see an iRacing.com driver square off against a GT Academy driver. Wouldn’t that be something to see?!
