Romain Grosjean finishes in fourth place in the GTDPRO class at the IMSA 12 Hours of Sebring alongside his Iron Lynx teammates
The 12 Hours of Sebring, held at Sebring International Raceway in Florida, is an annual motorsport endurance race. The first event was held in 1950, albeit having a duration of six hours in its debut rather than the current iteration’s 12 hours. The track is known to be quite technical and bumpy; and add onto that the climate in Florida, which is typically quite hot and humid, tests both car and driver alike. The race is one of three in the Triple Crown of endurance racing, alongside the 24 Hours of Le Mans and the 24 Hours of Daytona.
Step One Motorsports ambassador Romain Grosjean competed in the #63 Iron Lynx car in the GTDPRO category alongside fellow Lamborghini Factory Drivers Franck Perera and Jordan Pepper in a Lamborghini Huracán GT3 EVO2. The car was driven by Perera in qualifying on Friday, March 17th, securing the car a P5 qualifying position within their category. Race day, March 18th, saw the team face challenging conditions and the Lamborghini cars competed with a somewhat restrictive BOP but nonetheless, Grosjean, Perera, and Pepper gained a position in the race and finished in P4.
Next up for Grosjean and Iron Lynx on the IMSA calendar will be Sahlen’s Six Hours of the Glen which is set to be held at Watkins Glen International in New York, from June 22nd to 25th, 2023.
