Porscheplatz: 12 Hours of Sebring 2009

On March 21st, 2009 Sports Car Advisors visited Sebring International Raceway for the 2009 12 Hours of Sebring.   Delayed flights into Florida and bad weather on the way up to the raceway put us behind schedule and so we did not catch the start of the race.  By the time we arrived at Sebring, the new BMW M3′s had already DNF’d.

Aside from the always competitive racing of the ALMS cars, one of the highlights was the Porscheplatz.  Porsche Club of American (PCA) always does a great job of putting in a nice hospitality tent for members and aligning member Porsches for viewing.  Sports Car Advisors was welcomed into the Porscheplatz as fellow PCA members watched the race in the tent, we browsed the gorgeous Porsches parked in the grass nearby.  Following are some of the great pictures of the Porsches we found.
