Craig Stanton probably logged more miles preparing for the 61st Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring presented by Fresh from Florida than he will spend behind the wheel of the no. 66 TRG Porsche 911 GT3 Cup. When he tells you he’s ready for Sebring, he’s not kidding.

Look for Marcel Fassler, Benoit Treluyer and Oliver Jarvis in the no1 2012 car. Lucas di Grassi, Tom Kristensen and Allan McNish will share the no2 2013 car.
