Super Sebring delivered on it's name indicating the best of 67 years of racing at this historic track. There was so much to cover, I can only give you a taste of what went on March 13-16th. I will try to give you a representative sample through pictures of this memorable event. As the picture above says, there was a lot of 'shift' going on!
I will have a second post for the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge for pictures of that race. I was not able to cover the FIA WEC race on Friday as I had family a commitment in St. Petersburg late Friday. In spite of that here's some pretty nice photos for you. The weather ranged from perfect to horrible and everything in between as you will see. Overall it was an incredible set of races to photograph. And the finish was especially close for the DPi class with Felipe Nasr holding off Jordan Taylor by less than 2 seconds for the final 10 minuets of the race. Here's only a few of the pics I took:
