Save the date: Pistons & Props Nov. 30-Dec. 4

ATTENTION PILOTS! Fly in to Sebring Regional Airport and join us for this unique, historic event

The HSR Classic 12 Hours of Sebring, Pistons and Props, will follow the same concept of HSR’s Classic 24 Hour at Daytona.
 
The immediate success of the Classic 24 Hour at Daytona, which has quickly ascended to “must-attend” status on the worldwide motorsports scene, provided the inspiration behind the similar event on the iconic grounds of Sebring International Raceway.
 
While the Rolex 24 Hour At Daytona is America’s premier 24-hour race, the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring Fueled by Fresh from Florida, has gained equally legendary status as the oldest major sports car race in the United States.
 
An entirely unique aspect of the Classic 12 Hours of Sebring, Pistons and Props, however, will be the simultaneous celebration of Sebring’s rich military and civil aviation history that is as much a part of the 12 Hours of Sebring as the race itself.

TEQUILA PATRÓN ESM HONDA PROTOTYPE WINS SECOND STRAIGHT

imsa_P_2_Patron_SMALLComing off of a stirring victory in the season-opening Rolex 24 At Daytona, the No. 2 Tequila Patrón ESM Honda Ligier JS P2 returned to Victory Lane with a second consecutive triumph in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship.

Pipo Derani captured the checkered flag in a final sprint in Saturday’s 64th Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring Fueled by Fresh From Florida. With five minutes and 45 seconds to go, Derani passed Dane Cameron in the No. 31 Whelen Engineering/Team Fox Corvette DP from Action Express Racing to take the lead and the eventual victory, sweeping Daytona and Sebring in back-to-back rounds of the Tequila Patrón North American Endurance Cup.

What a tough race this was,” said Derani. “We had some contact, some spins, and moving our way back to the front was just unbelievable. In the end, I knew we had a great car, and new tires. But with only 10 to 15 minutes to go and still be in fourth was difficult to believe that we were going to make it. God had an eye on me and everything I executed was perfect. I can’t believe it all. It happened like that. I was so focused to bring the car home. The adrenaline was so high I couldn’t think about anything else.
