BAR1 Motorsports Announces 12 Hours of Sebring Driver Line-Up BAR1 Motorsports is eager to announce their two-car Prototype Challenge lineup for the 62nd Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring Fueled by Fresh From Florida. Joining Martin Plowman in the #88 Loop Pay/Snowball Express/TOP 1 Oil/Merchant Services/Naked Paddock/Papa car is Doug Bielefeld, Tomy Drissi, and Chapman Ducote. Contesting for a win in the #87 GK Motorsports/K-Hill Racing car is Gaston Kearby, Tonis Kasemets, and Bruce Hamilton.
BAR1 Motorsports will compete in the 12 Hours of Sebring and remainder of the 2014 TUDOR United SportsCar Championship season with dual PC entries. Team owner, Brian Alder, comes from a background with extensive endurance experience, and 3 class wins at Sebring under his belt. Alder’s experience with endurance racing will guide the team throughout the second endurance race of the season.
"Sebring is a tough race, 12 hours around this track is tougher than 24 at Daytona or Lemans," said Alder. "To win this race it takes a bullet proof car and consistent laps by all the drivers. Similar to Daytona, the team that can keep the car on the track will be in prime position to fight for a win in the last 2 hours of the race."
The lineup of drivers that Brian Alder and BAR1 Motorsports have assembled holds a diverse and extensive background that will benefit the team throughout the 12 hours. After an race incident at the 2014 Rolex 24 at Daytona, BAR1 Motorsports is returning with a similar group of drivers and a couple new faces.
American Driver, Gaston Kearby, will return with BAR1 Motorsports for 12 Hours of Sebring after competing with the team at the Rolex 24 at Daytona. The Texas native has previously competed in SCCA Formula Atlantic where he holds the Mid State 2013 Majors Champion Title with six Top 5 wins, National Auto Sport Association, and Sportscar Vintage Racing Association.
"We had a great run at the Rolex 24 at Daytona, although it wasn’t the results we were looking for," said Kearby. "The car was quick from the beginning and the team was great to work with. The Rolex 24 at Daytona was my first race in a PC car and I am eager to see what we can do at Sebring. Brian has a diverse group of drivers for the race and I am happy to be a part of it. I am looking forward to being back with the team for the 12 Hours of Sebring and I am hoping for a successful race."
