12 Hours of Sebring 2016


2016 12 Hours of Sebring - Images by Brian Cleary


A strong field, including the final start for IMSA's Daytona Prototypes took the green flag under on a beautiful, sunny Saturday morning.

The sunny skies deteriorated to heavy rain by early afternoon, and the drizzle carried the race into the evening hours.

A spirited battle involving the Action Express Corvette DP's , a pair of Honda LIgier LMP2 cars and a few other strong teams came dow to the wire.

In the end the ESM Honda Ligier of Scott Sharp, Johannes van Overbook, Ed Brown and the hard charging youngster Luis Felipe Derani took the victory, to sweep the 2016 Rolex 24 and Sebring 12 Hours before turning their focus to the 2016 WEC schedule.
