Final DPi Results from Road Atlanta
P1 – Jarvis, Blomqvist, Castroneves, No. 60, Acura DPi 
P4 – Bourdais, van der Zande, Dixon, No. 01, Cadillac DPi-V.R
P5 – Bamber, Lynn, Hunter-Reay, No. 02, Cadillac DPi-V.R 

Alex Lynn - 02 Cadillac DPi-V.R
"We had a very strong car today, so it was a disappointment to not get the result that the team deserved. I think Ryan, Earl and myself were driving really well and it’s sad that we haven’t brought home the result that we wanted.”

Sébastien Bourdais - 01 Cadillac DPi-V.R
"Obviously, that is not the end of the championship that anybody wanted for Cadillac Racing and the Chip Ganassi Racing team. It’s a shame; there was a race win on the line, and everybody wants to go out on the high note. We’re disappointed to finish like that with the new era ahead of us. The team worked very hard this year and we can only thank them for all their efforts. We will see what the future brings.”

Earl Bamber - 02 Cadillac DPi-V.R
“I think we had a fantastic race all day, to be honest. We had a really good car with the No. 02 Cadillac all day long. We managed to lead a lot of laps and hours and that’s something to be proud of. Obviously, I’m quite disappointed with what happened and mostly for everyone at Cadillac and Chip Ganassi Racing. We come here to win as a team, whether it’s the No. 01 or the No. 02, and that is a tough scenario to be in. I think this was a season to be proud of and I believe we’ve scored the most pole positions, as well as a lot of race wins. Now, it’s on to what’s next which is testing for GTP.”

Renger van der Zande - 01 Cadillac DPi-V.R
“We came to Petit Le Mans to win and to finish the race like this is really difficult. There’s never any intention to come together out there and we’ll reflect on this and regroup as a team. We can look back on a season where we had great success with wins in Long Beach, Detroit and Mosport. Chip Ganassi Racing and Cadillac put out a really fast car all year and to do that is no easy feat. It takes a lot of really talented people to make this all work.”
