Laurens Vanthoor aiming high at the 12 Hours of Sebring
Laurens Vanthoor debuted with Porsche in the Rolex 24 at Daytona. The Beglian GT ace performed well in the competitive GT Le Mans class at the wheel of the brand new Porsche 911 RSR.
The next event for Laurens Vanthoor with Porsche GT Team is another big endurance classic, the 12 Hours of Sebring, home of the second round of the 2017 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship.
Laurens Vanthoor never competed in the Florida race and is looking forward to perform well in one of most demanding events in international sportscar racing.
"I only know this race from television and from the stories my team mates have shared. It has a great history and I’m looking forward to being a part of that" Laurens Vanthoor said about the prestigious 12-hour event.
About Sebring International Raceway, he added: "I got to know the course during our testing here. It was an impressive experience"
Laurens Vanthoor will be sharing the factory backed #912 Porsche 911 RSR with co-drivers Kevin Estre and Richard Lietz.
