2014 - 12 HOURS OF SEBRING-- World's Finest Race Cars in a Carnival Atmosphere.

Team La Bomba at the 2011 12 Hours of Sebring. Team La Bomba is located at Turn 11, Collier Curve, just in front of the Oak Trees. This was the La Bomba ArtCar's 15th anniversary at the 12 Hours of Sebring. 2011 also marked the first year that Sebring officially sanctioned a Cruiser/Campsite contest at the 12 Hours of Sebring. La Bomba did prevail in the Cruiser Contest at the 12 Hours of Sebring against some very worthy challengers, and our friends at Turn 10 won the Campsite Contest at the 12 Hours of Sebring. It was a great race week at the 12 Hours of Sebring with perfect weather thoughout, and a very large and competitive field of cars entered in the 12 Hours of Sebring Race. We had the pleasure of meeting Allan McNish, who co-drove the #2 Audi R15+ at the 12 Hours of Sebring with drivers Tom Kristensen and Dindo Capello, when he spotted La Bomba and shot some of his own personal video which you can see on his website at: AllanMcNish.com - Team La Bomba was invited by Greg Harris, president of the Greater Sebring Chamber of Commerce, and Barry Foster - local Sebring radio personality - to be part of the tradition of having race cars cruise into downtown Sebring, from the track at the 12 Hours of Sebring, and park around the circular park in the center of town for a meet and greet with the public. It was loads of fun and we had the pleasure of meeting the lovely and gracious Katie Haviland, who was crowned 'Miss 12 Hours of Sebring 2011'. Also worthy of noting is the motorized couch seen for the first time at the 12 Hours of Sebring. The first time I saw the motorized couch guys zippy around the paddock at the 12 Hours of Sebring, I didn't have my camera. I finally tracked down their camp somewhere near Turn 3, but the couch was in for repairs. Later that day I was finally able to film them from the deck of La Bomba as we crossed paths along the North Paddock Trail. The motorized couch is an instant classic at the 12 Hours of Sebring! Incidentally, that's a paddle-ball table attached to the front of the couch rig. Also, had to give some face time to the 12 Hours of Sebring Cougars and Kittens, who were making the rounds. Cougars & Kittens at the 12 Hours of Sebring. Update: Congratulations to Audi and the team of the Audi R-18 car#2 driven by Benoit Treluyer, Marcel Fassler and Andre Lotterer for their stunning and thrilling 13 seconds win, after 24 Hours of racing, over the Peugeot 908 at the 2011 24 Hours of Le Mans. Thankfully, Allan McNish survived a horrific crash of his Audi R18 in the first hour of the 24 Hours of Le Mans. The crash of Allan McNish and his Audi R18 was caused by making contact with a Ferrari when the Ferrari driver didn't see Allan McNish driving under him into a corner and the two made contact, sending Allan McNish and his Audi R18 into a high-speed backwards slide into a tire barrier with the resulting impact tearing his car apart. Allan McNish escape the carnage with nary an injury and also non of the photographers in the area were injured as well. The #1 Audi R18 driven by Mike Rockenfeller also sustained a horrific and terrifying crash in the night time hours. Mike Rockenfeller was held overnight in a hospital for observation. It was an incredible sight to see the one remaining Audi R18 - Car #2 with drivers Benoit Treluyer, Marcel Fassler and Andre Lotterer (Andre Lotterer piloting the final laps) soldier on to an overall win in a very close duel with the Peugeot 908.

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.
