Porsche sweeps Sebring

leave a comment »

After a twenty year overall podium absence, Porsche returns screaming with vengeance, and a P2 overall sweep in the 12 Hour of Sebring.

However, the second-place Acura was later excluded from the results after failing the stall test during postrace inspection.
That gave Porsche a 1-2-3 sweep of the podium in the American LeMans Series event.
Timo Bernard of Germany and Emmanuel Collard of France drove the winning Porsche with Dumas. It was the first overall Sebring for all three drivers.
With Acura’s exclusion, second place in the season-opening American Le Mans Series race went to American Butch Leitzinger, who shared a Dyson Racing Porsche RS Spyder with Marino Franchitti of Scotland and Andy Lally of the U.S.A.. Dyson teammates Guy Smith and Chris Dyson drove the third-place Porsche RS Spyder.

The overall win for Porsche was its first since 1988 when Hans Stuck and Klaus Ludwig took victory in a Porsche 962.
