SVRA 12 Hours of Sebring 2011 – Results and Photo Gallery

The second race of the SVRA vintage car racing season was held March 16-20, 2011 at the famed Sebring International Raceway in Sebring, Florida. Held in conjunction with the 12 Hours of Sebring, the event is held on the same 3.7 mile, 17-turn track that is home to the American Le Mans Series race won this year by Peugeot 908 HDi of Oreca Racing.

Since the vintage racers share track time with their modern brethren at Sebring, SVRA has to group cars together much differently, opting for three race sessions – Vintage, Historic and Enduro – instead of the normal six to eight pairings.

The “Vintage Group” included cars manufactured and prepared to 1972 and earlier racing specifications, while the “Historic Group” included cars with post-1970 specifications, regardless of year of manufacture and certain earlier cars deemed more appropriate for this group.

The SVRA 12 Hours of Sebring field of approximately 70 race cars included such heavy hitters as the 1986 Rothmans Porsche 962 of Johan Woerheide, Byron DeFoor’s Lola T70 Mk III and the 1980 BMW M1 of Peter Angelos, in addition to the 1948 Allard K1 of Peter McManus and a myriad of nicely prepared Porsches, Datsun and MGs.
