Hospital Patients to Ride with AJR at Sebring

Sebring, Florida -- Alex Job Racing spent the morning at Heartland Hospital in Sebring visiting patients and performing a simulated pit stop. The patients all signed the rear engine cover of the number 24 McKenna/mail2web/Alex Job Racing/Porsche 911 GT3 RSR.

AJR drivers Marc Lieb, Timo Bernhard, Lucas Luhr and Romain Dumas signed autographs for children in the pediatric ward, visited with new mothers and had a discussion with middle school kids to discuss the action that will be happening at Sebring Raceway this weekend. In exchange, the patients and school kids signed the rear engine cover of the AJR Porsche that will be raced at Sebring on Saturday. "We wanted to give the children someone to follow in this weekend's race," said Marc Lieb. "Each patient, new mother and school child signed the engine cover so they can watch their car race on Saturday."

"You could really tell that we brightened the day for the children," said Romain Dumas. "I had the chance to race [patient] Jarred Browning on the race car mountain in the children's play area in the pediatric ward, unfortunately he beat me two-out-of-three tries. I hope our race on Saturday goes better. It was a really nice way to spend the morning away from the pressures of the track."

"We consider Sebring our home track as it is just two-hours south of our shop. It was a good opportunity for the crew and the drivers to help the kids get their minds off their situation and to get ours off of racing for a while," said Alex Job, team owner."

The race will be televised Saturday, March 20, on Speed TV starting at 10:00 a.m. Speed will carry the complete race, over 13-hours of coverage.

AJR thanks team sponsors McKenna Porsche, mail2web.com, and partners Mobil 1, Michelin, Puma and ZF Sachs.
