Qualifying was a tense affair at the Autodromo José Carlos Pace, with less than 1/10th second covered 5th-8th, with the Legends prototype starting 0.019 behind 5th in 7th place.
The battle for 5th was as close as it had been in qualifying. Positions would be gained and lost in an intense battle on track. With both two and three stop strategies possible, in contrast with the majority of the field the team opted for the two stop strategy. This meant that the team were under pressure in the closing portion of the race, and, unable to keep BlackAdder Motorsports behind, the team looked to be doomed to 6th, but an uncharacteristic mistake from Gary Hickman of vApex Racing handed the team a season best 5th place finish.
