From Jeff Dorman – The 2021 edition of the 12 Hours of Sebring was another great day for Porsche, with wins in both the GTLM and GTD classes. The privateer No. 79 WeatherTech Racing Porsche 911 RSR-19 won GTLM, after the No. 25 BMW took out the leading Corvette No. 3 with 6 or so minutes remaining. In GTD, the No. 9 Pfaff Motorsports Porsche 911 GT3R paced a 1-2 Porsche finish and was the class of the GTD field all day. The No. 5 Mustang Sampling Cadillac DPI took home top honors among the three very busy Prototype classes (DPI, LMP2, and LMP3).
It was the fourth straight win for Porsche in GTLM at Sebring, and its 100th class victory at Sebring! And it was the 2nd straight year for the Porsche 1-2 in the GTD class.
It was a beautiful day for racing with very strong winds at times. Due to covid protocols the paddock and the traditional grid walk were off-limits to spectators. I’m hopeful that the 2022 edition brings a return of these special fan features. Regardless, the competition was as good as it gets. It was another fantastic 12 Hours of Sebring, especially for Porsche!
