Corvette Racing wins Third straight Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring

65th Annual Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring

There’s something about the two-car Corvette Racing C7.R team – when one car has a big problem, the other car seems to step up and win the race.

It happened last year at the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring Fueled by Fresh From Florida: The No. 3 Corvette crashed, ending up 41st overall in the 48-car field. But the No. 4 team car took the GT Le Mans (GTLM) class win.

This year, at the 65th Annual Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring, same song, different verse: The No. 4 Corvette finished 46th – that’s last place – after cooling issues that couldn’t be solved sent the car to the trailer. That left the No. 3 Corvette to take up the slack, which wouldn’t be easy, as the Ford Chip Ganassi team sent three Ford GTs to Sebring, hoping to complete their string of crown jewel endurance race wins – the 2016 24 Hours of Le Mans, the 2017 Rolex 24 at Daytona, and now the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring.
