The Wright Motorsports team would survive a high attrition rate in the GTD class. Heylen and his co-pilots would largely control the final six hours of the race. They would come under some pressure from the AF Course Ferrari, but would still cruise to a comfortable victory, thanks to Heylen's strong anchor stint in the No. 16 Porsche. It was his first class victory in the Rolex 24 and third podium finish in the endurance classic.
