For Immediate Release
March 22, Sebring, Florida.- After a promising start at the 70th Edition of the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring Presented by Advance Auto Parts, PR1/Mathiasen Motorsports #11 LMP2 entry piloted by Steven Thomas, Jonathan Bomarito and Josh Pierson ended the race in the 4th position last Saturday.
“What an emotional rollercoaster!”, said Team Principal Bobby Oergel. “The chances were looking strong to a podium finish, sadly a broken exhaust collector killed the ability to produce the type of lap times to make that happen. Steven, Josh and Jonathan did a great job and sadly it wasn’t our day to put it in the books with the #11 car.”
Weather conditions played an important role for all teams and drivers competing in the 70th edition of this mythical 12-hour race, with high temperatures taking a toll on drivers and teams.
“Another tough race for the #11 car.”, said Jonathan Bomarito. “We are making progress as a team and I’m looking forward to the next race at Laguna Seca. Congrats to the #52 car and crew, they had a great race!”, Bomarito finalized.
