After disney I stopped in Sebring and stayed at the hotel located on the hairpin turn.

The hotel carried a racing theme but did so very tastefully. The hotel lobby had lots of b&w photographs of the 12 hours of Sebring over the years.

Former Toyota Atlantic Series car, ran very quick as expected, best lap of 2:02. The Atlantic was beat in one of the races by a C-Sports Racer that broke the CSR track record with a lap of 2:03. Also very impressive was a GT-1 class NASCAR type thing that ran a best lap of 2:08

We have seen this Rolex GT RX-8 in the 24 hours of Daytona. The same team was running it this weekend.

Koni Challenge ST class Neon SRT-4, this car ran in the spec miata run group and went through them like a P1 car with GT2 cars. Makes sense given it probably has a 150 hp advantage.

Newman Haas was testing there Monday-Wednesday this week. Alex Lloyd posted the same picture of a few from his balcony.
