Mobil 12 Hours of Sebring: The Race That Was Pt. 2


Over-exertion can be a bad thing, but it can also be a very good thing. It's Tuesday morning, and my heels still hurt like crazy. From last Saturday. I did a lot of walking, a lot of standing . . . a lot of getting in other people's way . . . typical "suburban-dick" stuff.

This here post will fill you in on the hard numbers: who made it to the podium of the Mobil 12 Hours of Sebring. It also contains several videos, some from our intrepid 'pit' (shyeah, right) reporter, and some from media outlets who have slightly higher production values. It's an ALMS-Media-Overloadblitz-a-thon!! Enjoy!

The gallery below features the podium cars in action. But first, a thrilling battle from the opening laps; start paying attention right around 1:15, you won't believe what your pathetic little eye-balls are relaying to your overly stimulated brain . . .

A note about the images: I know they're a wee might bit blurry- we are amateurs and we are still figuring out how exactly one takes a perfectly still photo of a fairly small car going 160mph right past our faces. We will get better, and our image galleries will swell . . . bear with us . . . xoxo, JD

Are you sure the alcohol consumed didn't contribute to the blurry pics? or maybe it was the large amounts of T&A you viewed made your eyes blurry?
