Sebring 2016

Made it through the 12 hours of Sebring. While sneaking in to grab a poster from the Porsche Club tent, I was asked if I was a member... "no but I am an owner" ...which got us credentials for the weekend, highlighted by a visit with the 911 and 912 driver lineups,  and winning the imsa hospitality hot pit access in a raffle.

The clutch has been replaced and the car can now turn it's own wheels. Porsche quotes this as a 16 hour job for a certified technician. The car also has a new exhaust (taken from the parts car), up to date seat-belts, 10 gauge alternator wire (previous owner had a thin strand for this), and radio wiring harness. Lots of other maintenance items to go.
