Twelve Hours of Sebring

The Miracle Strip Corvette Club was represented at the 66th running of the 12 
Hours of Sebring Endurance Race and the Corvette Corral. The weather was perfect
for the four days of racing including historic car races, Porsche GT3 Cup, 
Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge, Prototype Challenge and the Weather Tech 
Championship Series. 
         More than 200 Corvettes filled the Corvette Corral with guest
speakers including, Doug Fehan, Corvette Racing Manager, Ron Fellows, Spring 
Mountain, Harlan Charles, Corvette Program Manager, and representatives from 
the Corvette Museum, Michelin, and Mobile 1. One hundred Corvettes took to the 
track on Thursday for some fun laps on the 3.74 mile road course. 
   The Corral was tuned into the C7R radio communications as well as multiple 
live TV feeds of the race. Snacks and drinks were plenty with lunch served on 
Saturday during the 12 hour race. Sebring is famous for being the roughest track 
in the IMSA series and took a toll on the number 3 Corvette which cut a tire on 
the first lap followed by electrical and steering problems, finishing 8th. The 
number 4 Corvette ran a perfect race but was off pace finishing 6th in the GTLM 
class. The Sebring race week is a fan favorite with open paddock, fan grid walk 
and access to the entire track along with concerts and manufacture displays.
