The 61st edition of the Twelve Hour of Sebring will be the final one under the auspices of the American Le Mans Series ahead of the merger, in 2014, with Grand Am.

Who will you cheer for, BMW, Corvette, Porsche, Ferrari, Aston, Viper?  lots to choose in GT but in GTC, the class for Porsche GT3 Cup cars, we say cheer for 31!  

CG will be attacking the bumpy Florida track along with two young guns, from Poland, Jakub "Kuba" Giermaziak and from Germany, Mario Farnbacher.
Mario Farnbacher

Kuba at 22 years of age has 3 years experience in the super competitive Porsche Supercup, where he place third in the 2011 season with VERVA Racing,  as well as open wheel experience in Formula Renault 2.0 and Euro Formula 3.

At 20, Mario Farnbacher has been breathing racing fumes from a very early age, from a racing family which includes his older brother, SRT Viper driver, Dominik,  Mario raced  ADAC-GT-Masters in Germany in 2012.

Kuba and Mario along with Henrique Cisneros were GTC class
winners at the 2012 Petit Le Mans.

Carlos Gomez, of couse you know if you follow Axis.

Communications between a Colombian, a Pole and a German should be highly amusing,  I'm not worried,  they all are fluent in the language of speed and the great Ramez Wahab, the man behind NGT Motorsports will give Axis a great car.

The 12 Hours of Sebring presented by Fresh from Florida will be broadcast in the US on Fox News Sports News /Speed on the 16th at 10:30 AM ET.

On the web it will be streamed, qualifying on the 15th at 1:05 PM ET and the race on the 16th starting at 10:30 AM ET.   Tune into ALMS.COM for details.

Ready for testing on Wednesday!


  1. Wow, Kuba is in the Axis team? This is awesome, wish you all the best guys, give them hell! :)

  2. Supremely disappointing to learn that for those of us who refuse to pay ridiculous prices for cable TV access, the contract they signed with Speed to broadcast the race means that ALL US residents are blocked from viewing the race on the ALMS website. If you don't have cable, you can't watch and American series racing cars in America. UN. BE. LIEVABLE. The ALMS really don't care about the people that pay their checks. Not having TV coverage in the US to speak of in the last few years is why they got in bed with NASCAR. I'm seriously rethinking spending almost a grand to take a camper and a bunch of friends to my annual Petit Le Mans trip if this is how they are going to treat us. It's like the ALMS can't negotiate worth a damn because their TV deals have gotten worse every year. Even the CEO, Scott Atherton, basically told all the ALMS fans that it was up to them to give their ISP enough shit to carry ESPN3 so they could watch the races. He basically blamed all of us because they have zero ability to negotiate contracts. I'm sure all their sponsors really love the fact that they get less and less eyeballs every year due to their incompetence.
