Alex Job Racing will be inducted into this year’s Sebring Hall of Fame in March at the Chateau Elan Hotel and Conference Center.
“With 10 wins and a 1-2-3 sweep of the podium, we have always done well at what is thought, around the world, as the most demanding track for sports cars,” said team owner Alex Job on the IMSA website.“All of our victories have been with Porsche and as we head into our 27th year with the brand, we are hoping to add the 11th win in a month.” IMSA is the International Motor Sports Association.
Ian James, Mario Farnbacher and Alex Riberas combined to win the 2015 Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring for Alex Job Racing in the No. 23 Team Seattle/Heart of Racing Porsche. The team also fields the No. 22 WeatherTech Porsche GT3 R for Cooper MacNeil and Leh Keen.
The team has also won five championships (GT in 2002 – 2004 and GTC 2012-2013) complimented by two GT class wins at the famed 24 Hours of Le Mans. The team also has 10 Sebring 12-hour wins, including last year’s GTD class victory.
Joining Alex Job Racing in the Class of 2016 are Tom Kristensen, Sebring’s leading winner with six overall victories; Sam Posey, 1975 Sebring winner; Dick Smothers, two-time class winner; Tres Stephenson, president of Sebring Raceway for over three decades; and former Tampa Tribune Sports Editor Tom McEwen.
