After a lackluster finish at the 24 Hours of Daytona back in January, where Porsche suffered the indignity of not having a car on any class podium for the first time ever, the motorsport team has to come out swinging at Sebring if they have any hope of regaining the points they need for the championship later this year. Porsche was within a shot of winning the GTLM class at Sebring last year, were it not for an unlucky tire puncture with 30 minutes to go in the final stint. They know how to strategize this race, and they know how to race this track. For now, we’ll just have to cross our fingers and hope they’re in place for the 12th hour.
For long endurance races like this one, Twitter can be an invaluable source of information. Not only can Twitter provide an up-to-the-minute view of what’s happening in the race, it can connect you with intimate details and insight from the drivers and teams themselves. In fact, we know of no other way to stay as closely and accurately informed about what’s happening in the Porsche world before, during and after the race (even if you were at the event itself) than through the “Twittersphere”. You just need to know who to follow.
