Tequila Patrón ESM 12 Hours of Sebring Recap
– In a race where most teams have months to prepare, Tequila Patrón ESM accomplished in two weeks. Tequila Patrón ESM and Honda Performance Development made the decision to enter the ARX-03b prototypes into the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship race – the 63rd Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring Fueled by Fresh From Florida in the second week of March. A bold and promising decision since the ARX-03b was a race-proven prototype that earned the Florida-based sportscar team a runner-up finish one year ago. In the end, the 12 Hours of Sebring was just not the race for Tequila Patrón ESM. A rear suspension issue and loss of Boost dashed the team’s hopes of a podium finish at its home track on March 21, 2015. An early end to a promising weekend, but the Tequila Patrón ESM team is not disappointed. In two weeks, it prepared to race cars that had not seen competition since last November. Two of the six drivers had never driven the race cars, who then posted fast lap times during the race. The 12 Hours of Sebring is a long race at a facility that is rough on both racer and race car. The team sought podium finishes and may have walked away empty handed in the trophy department, but full of promise and expectations for the upcoming races ahead. The 12 Hours of Sebring marks the eve of Tequila Patrón ESM’s European adventure. The team put its best foot forward this weekend and now launches into the second phase of its 2015 season – the FIA World Endurance Championship (FIA WEC). Immediately following tonight’s race, the crew packed its race cars and entire paddock into boxes to ship to Europe. Tequila Patrón ESM will participate in the FIA WEC pre-season test, The Prologue, at Circuit Paul Ricard in Le Castellet, France, on March 27-28. In less than a month, Tequila Patrón ESM will compete in the 6 Hours of Silverstone, the first of FIA WEC eight international races on the schedule.

However, the first-place Flying Lizard Porsche was excluded from results for a technical infraction following a post-race inspection. As a result, the Extreme Speed Motorsports Tequila Patrón Ferrari was awarded the victory.
