The goal of having 30 cars on the grid has been surpassed for the upcoming season’s premier race at Sebring next week. A great field of cars include many returning Series competitors and past champions, combined with fourteen first-time drivers with International GT.
“We are very excited about the enthusiasm and participation in our first race of the 2018 season. Our primary objective is to maintain the quality level of driving and sportsmanship on the track and fun in the paddock, that we have enjoyed for the past three years,” commented Ken Fengler, Series President.
There should be plenty of entertaining racing to be had with 23 Porsches, 10 Ferraris and a couple of exhibition GT cars on track.
