Alex Job Racing Porsches, BAM! Porsche Hold First Three GT Positions after Three Hours at The 52nd Annual Mobil 12 Hours of Sebring
SEBRING -- March 20 -- Polesitter Timo Bernhard put the Alex Job Racing McKenna Porsche/mail2web Porsche 911 GT3 RSR in first place near the end of the first hour and co-driver Sascha Maassen continues to lead after three hours of the 52nd Annual Mobil 12 Ho urs of Sebring.
Second is the other Alex Job Racing Porsche, which started at the back of the field because its qualifying time was disallowed by tech, has made its way through the field and is currently second. Lucas Luhr started the car, and Romain Dumas is in the car now.
After the third-place Ferrari, the J3 Racing Porsche 911 GT3 RSR with Justin Jackson/Tim Sudgen/Brian Cunningham driving is fourth. Fifth is the White Lightning Petersen Motorsport Porsche, started by David Murry and now being driven by Craig Stanton.
Most of hour one was led by the Flying Lizard Porsche 911 GT3 RSR started by Johannes van Overbeek, who held first place in GT until their first pit stop, when the battery died. The crew jump-started the car, and it was on its way, but they changed the ba ttery and the cables on the next stop, and the car is now running sixth with former Atlantic champion John Fogarty at the wheel.
Seventh is the other car whose qualifying time was disallowed -- the BAM! Porsche started by Mike Rockenfeller, and currently being driven by Peter Baron. Baron let the race during the second hour before the team's regular pit stop.
The Racer's Group Porsche of Patrick Long/Cort Wagner/Kelly Collins was running in second place before it broke a shift linkage cable, causing a 30-minute pit stop. They are now running 17th in class.
The Seikel Racing Porsche retired after a bolt broke off the restrictor, causing the engine to seize.
