After the fourth hour of the 2014 Rolex 24 at Daytona came to an end the field was moving once more, with pitstops taking place as the organisers prepared to send the race back to green.

Both drivers involved in the accident that precipitated the red flag – Matteo Malucelli and Memo Gidley – were confirmed as being taken to Halifax Hospital in Daytona with no further update on the condition of either man at the time of writing.

Following the recovery of both cars, and the necessary clean up of the debris following the crash the race organisers made certain of the race order – the standings somewhat complicated as cars had stopped around the track under the red flag – before opening the pits.

Some drivers took the opportunity to come in, Tony Kanaan giving up the second place he held under red flag to come in while Christian Fittipaldi remained on track and is set to lead the race to the green flag in the #5 Action Express Racing Corvette DP.

The lead in PC remained unchanged, RSR Racing still leading, while the hour ended before either of the race’s GT classes had the opportunity to pit.
