Sebring International Raceway ACR Lap Record Break

12 Hours of Sebring Race 1966
The 1966 12 Hours of Sebring was an endurance race held at the 5.2 mile (8.3 km) Sebring International Raceway, Sebring, Florida, United States on March 26, 1966. It was the sixteenth running of the endurance classic and the second round of the 1966 World Sportscar Championship season. The race proved to be a disastrous event; one of the darkest in American motorsports history. Ford had just come off a 1-2-3 triumph at the first 24 Hours of Daytona in February, with 2 of their 7-liter engined GT40 Mk.II's being run by Carroll Shelby. They had effectively trounced Ferrari and Porsche, and were looking to do the same thing at Sebring in March. Ford's assault on Sebring (which has always been a good preparation run for Le Mans) was unprecedented. There were 11 GT40 Mk.I's, Mk.II's and a special X-1 Roadster (which was a heavily modified GT40 Mk.I with an aluminum chassis, a Mk.II nose, no roof and a 7-liter 427 engine, the same motor in a Mk.II) at Sebring- these cars were entered by at least 5 different teams- all of whom had direct factory support. The two main works teams, however, were Shelby-American, a team with direct connections to Ford and seasoned with lots of road-racing experience; and the Holman & Moody team, which was known for its successes in NASCAR. There were also 2 works Ferrari's (originally there were supposed to be 5) and 2 Chaparral 2D's. American Dan Gurney qualified his Shelby-entered Mk.II on pole position with a lap record of 2:54.6, followed by the new Ferrari 330P3 of Bob Bondurant and Mike Parkes, then a Mk.I of Britons Graham Hill and Jackie Stewart, then another Mk.II of Americans Mark Donohue and Walt Hansgen, then the X-1 of Briton Ken Miles and American Lloyd Ruby and then a Chaparral 2D of Americans Jim Hall and Hap Sharp. Ford would dominate yet again. Gurney and Grant were leading- and on the last lap, while Gurney was driving, the car's engine failed. People at the pits were expecting Gurney to take victory- but Ken Miles crossed the finish line first in the GT40 X-1. Gurney was pushing his GT40 Mk.II on the course, and he made it to the finish line. Although pushinlg a car during the race was illegal- and the car was disqualified, and the Holman/Moody entered GT40 Mk.II was awarded 2nd place. 3rd was an Essex Wire entered GT40 Mk.I of Skip Scott and Peter Revson, and then a works Porsche finished 4th.

12 Hs of Sebring - 1970 - Highlights
McQueen I loved the 512. It was a typical Ferrari sports racer--pretty, fast, and powerful. Daytona qualifying proved quite a duel between Hans Herrmann, in a Porsche 917 on Goodyears, and myself, in the Ferrari on Firestones. It was a good battle between two big sports-car makers and the two big tire companies, meaningful stuff at that time. I put the car on pole--but only because it was raining. Revson Herrmann was quick, especially in the wet. During qualifying, he'd do some laps and set a fast pace. Then I'd go out, and I was faster. Then he'd come out again and go faster yet. It was just pouring rain, and I was really testing the banking. At Daytona, even if you slow down in the wet, you're still in the 180-mph range. I just kept moving up the banking, higher and higher. Then, finally, I went out and just held it there--flat out--maybe two feet away from the wall. In those days, there was no chicane; we just went flat down the long straightaway. By then, I was four seconds a lap quicker than he was. He never came out again, and I wound up on pole. Speedwise, in the race, we were outclassed. We had no chance of winning. Besides being slower than the Porsches, our car had suspension problems. So, the Daytona 24-Hour was not an auspicious beginning to our season, and from it, Ferrari knew that the Porsche 917 was going to be a formidable adversary that year, to say the least. On to Sebring. For the 12-Hour, the team decided to run a lighter version of the 512S, an open-roofed car or "spyder." Aerodynamics weren't as important at Sebring, as the straights aren't as long as at Daytona or Le Mans. Ferrari entered two spyders and a coupe. The spyder benefited from being lighter, and I could feel the difference. But it wasn't as easy to drive because the chassis flexed. Quite a bit. In some areas, like Turn 1, which is really fast, the car just wasn't good. It didn't handle as well as the coupe, but due to the better acceleration, it was faster--just more nervous. Andretti Testing went well. We were quick from the beginning, and we were ready. I was again teamed with Arturo Merzario and put the car on pole. The green flag dropped, and we just kinda took off. In this race, the 917s weren't a factor like they were at Daytona; our Ferraris were running 1-2-3 at the halfway point. Then, the Ferrari spyder driven by Jacky Ickx and Peter Schetty went out with failed differential bearings. The Porsches were having mechanical problems, too. But we were cruising along, maintaining a huge lead. Things were uneventful up until less than two hours before the end. Then it happened: Merzario was driving, and before we knew it, our car packed up with the same problem as the other spyder. We were out. I was getting ready to say my goodbyes. I had my plane there, and I was running a sprint-car race in Reading, Pennsylvania, the next day. So I figured I might as well head out early, maybe get some extra sleep. Ferrari team manager Mauro Forghieri said, "Wait, don't go. Don't go. I might want you to get into the other car"--the slower coupe, driven by Nino Vaccarella and Ignazio Guinti, which was now the only Ferrari team car still running. When our two spyders dropped out, the Rodriquez/Siffert/Kinnunen 917 (#15, above left) took over the lead, the Peter Revson/Steve McQueen Porsche 908 moved into second, and the remaining Ferrari moved up to third. To be honest, I wasn't all that keen about the swap for several reasons, but mostly because the seat wouldn't fit--I was a lot shorter than those guys! With the number 21 Ferrari running third, and so few laps remaining, I didn't see much of a chance of winning against the 917. All of a sudden, that car pitted with wheel-bearing problems, and we knew that was going to be a long stop. The 908, with Revson aboard, took over the lead, and the Ferrari moved up to second. There were about 90 minutes left. Poor Peter Revson. He was just spent--I think he drove like eight of the 12 hours--but was finally running first. The PA announcer screamed, "Steve McQueen is in the lead!" over and over. Well, Steve McQueen was sitting on the pit wall. They never, ever mentioned Revson. That caught my attention. And pissed me off.

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. www.ngtmotorsport.com www.seanedwards.eu www.americanlemans.com
