ALMS Sebring 12 Hour Highlights - #30 NGT Porsche + Helicopter!
The NGT Motorsport team entered it's first professional race at the Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring, which is part of the American Le Mans Series championship. Their regular drivers Henrique Cisneros and Carlos Kauffmann were coming off the back of winning the Patron GT3 challenge in 2010. They enlisted Pro driver Sean Edwards to accompany them during the long distance races.
They were consistently fastest throughout the winter test day and most of Sebring week, but two crashed at T17 were to push the team beyond their normal call of duty. They were unable to qualify, but the team pulled an all nighter and had the car ready for the morning warm up, where the car was quickest once again!
The race got underway, with NGT climbing all the way to the lead by hour 1 and holding onto it for most of the next 6 hours. Only for a mistaken wave by and the subsequent penalty which lost them 3 laps, they would have been fighting for the victory. Nevertheless they fought all the way back to 3rd place and never gave up, which was an amazing feat in their first Pro race! They also set the fastest lap of the race on a 2.07.7.
