IMSA: Sebring 12 Hours Pre-Race Updates

The Sebring 12 Hours is one of the classic sportscar races, both in America and around the world.

After the season-opening Daytona 24 hours, the second longest race of the season is next up for the IMSA Weathertech Championship.

After all of the teams ran four drivers for Daytona, they have all reverted back to three drivers and in this regard, there are only a few driver changes compared to Daytona.

The biggest name change in the Prototype class sees Brendon Hartley join the #5 Mustang Sampling Cadillac to replace the now retired Christian Fittipaldi.

The other major change occurs in the #10 Wayne Taylor Racing Cadillac as Mat Vaxiviere joins team regulars Jordan Taylor and Renger Van der Zande.

This means that Vaxiviere and Hartley will be joining Jonathan Bomarito, Olivier Pla, Harry Tincknell, Jan Magnussen, Antonio Garcia, Mike Rockenfeller, Patrick Lindsay and Gabriel Aubry in doing both the 12 Hours and the WEC 1000 Mile race.
