STUCK ADDS MORE DEPTH TO TALENTED SEBRING LINEUP

The addition of Hans Stuck to VICI Racing's lineup for the 57th Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring presented by Fresh from Florida brings the count of former winners of America's greatest sports car race to a whopping 29. The collection of competitors have combined for 68 class victories and 19 overall triumphs.

Stuck was the overall winner in 1975, 1986 and 1988. His first came in a BMW CSL in which he also won pole position and posted the fastest race lap. He drove a Porsche 962 in both '86 and '88 and was the fastest qualifier in 1985, also in a Porsche 962.

Stuck was a class winner in 1993 and 1996 in Porsche GT entries. This weekend he will team with son Johannes and Nicky Pastorelli in one of VICI Racing's Michelin-shod Porsche 911 GT3 RSRs.

"Racing at Sebring again after wining for the first time in 1975 means a lot to me, especially when it comes to the fact that I can compete in the 2009 race with my son Johannes, and further to that it will be my first race with Porsche since my last race for the factory in Laguna Seca 11 years ago in 1997," said the elder Stuck, who last raced at Sebring in 2001. "The other highlight is the fact that I'm racing for my old friend Ronnie Meixner who I was teammate with in the times with Joest Racing when we raced a Porsche 962."
