In the 61 year history of the 12 Hours of Sebring Porsche has claimed more victories than any other automaker. In fact, a Porsche still holds the record for the fastest race lap ever in this event; set in 1986 by Derek Bell in a Porsche 962 his record still stands nearly three decades later. However, for those that have attended a Sebring race you know there's so much more to it than a mere race, it's a party. Remember the Drunk Monks of Sebring? How about the Sebring Cows?
