The 65th Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring Fueled by Fresh From Florida on Saturday, March 18 will feature a strong, 46-car entry list for the second round of the 2017 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, as well as the Tequila Patrón North American Endurance Cup.
The race will be streamed live in its entirety in the United States on the FOX Sports GO app with FS1 authentication beginning at 10:30 a.m. ET. Live FS1 television coverage begins at 12:30 p.m. ET and continues for 9 1/2 consecutive hours, through the checkered flag and post-race interviews.
The WeatherTech Championship field includes 11 Prototype (P) class entries, a 10-car GT Le Mans (GTLM) field, 21 GT Daytona (GTD) entries and four Prototype Challenge (PC) cars. All four cars that won their respective classes in the season-opening Rolex 24 At Daytona on Jan. 28-29 are returning in hopes of repeating what both the Tequila Patrón ESM and Corvette Racing teams accomplished last year – a sweep of the “36 Hours of Florida” in the Prototype and GTLM classes.
The Rolex 24 overall-winning No. 10 Konica Minolta Cadillac DPi-V.R returns with its pair of full-season drivers in brothers Ricky and Jordan Taylor. However, they will welcome a new endurance race teammate in 23-year-old Briton Alex Lynn, making his WeatherTech Championship debut and filling a slot vacated by longtime No. 10 driver Max Angelelli, who retired following the Rolex 24 victory but still remains with the team as a co-owner. Four-time Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series champion Jeff Gordon also was part of the team’s Rolex 24-winning lineup, but now is focused on his commentary role for FOX Sports’ NASCAR coverage.
