It was a tale of two races during the Super Sebring Weekend as Corvette’s Racing No. 3 squad featuring Jan Magnussen, Antonio Garcia and Mike Rockenfeller saw double duty in both the WEC’s 1,000 Miles of Sebring on Friday evening and then in IMSA’s Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring on the following day.
While some teams would see the double race weekend as a detriment to their overall chances for IMSA’s Twelve-Hour which is the race that really counts, the Corvette Racing team took it in stride and look for the positives as this video from our friends at Mobil 1 The Grid shows:
With sportscar’s WEC and IMSA joining forces for this year’s Super Sebring weekend, Corvette Racing would take on the challenge of competing in both races; WEC’s 1,000 Miles of Sebring on the Friday, and the IMSA Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring on the Saturday. And with veteran racers Jan Magnussen, Antonia Garcia and Mike Rockenfeller at the helm, the team were well-prepared for what would turn out to be a unique and exhausting experience in store.
