From David Kelly – Here is a link to photos of the “48 Hours at Sebring” PCA Race on Friday 02/01/19 and on Saturday 02/02/19. The Sebring race is PCA’s largest race event and that was certainly evident from the very large number of GT3/Cup Cars in the field, and from the equally large group GT4/Club Sport entries on the Grid and on the track. Everything from a full complement of early water-cooled cars, Spec. Boxsters, and classic 911 race cars up to the latest Porsche track machines were well represented in the action. You’ll see that in the full Grids and five separate Run Groups as you go through the photos. There were great cars and great action everywhere you looked!
There was also much to see as you walked through the Paddock. The details in photos of the garages and the race cars seemed to tell a story all their own. Look for the rare white ’68 911 race car with some serious drivers and serious race history, or that beautiful white Carrera GT tooling through the Paddock, or check out the fresh #911 Porsche Factory RSR adorning the dining area in the Hall of Legends. It was a great lunch companion for everyone. Porsche North America brought two of their fully-equipped car haulers for the race and they were highly visible throughout the event.
The history of sports car racing at Sebring is everywhere, from the Juan Fangio Terrace and Dan Gurney Terrace, to the “Hall of Legends” and the huge “Hall of Fame” listed on the Tower, to the history of winning Marques for each year listed across the face of the Grand Stand at track-side over Pit Road. Porsche’s racing success at Sebring is a very significant part of that history.
Hopefully, you’ll find something of interest in the photos, and perhaps a feeling of being right there. Please feel free to download any of the images.
