2014-12-Hours-of-Sebring-Sketch-720x340

This year is the 63rd running of the 12 Hours of Sebring.  This is an endurance race that usually sees particpation from some the greatest automotive brands in racing, Porsche, BMW, Audi, etc.  Recent rule changes mean that the LMP1 Prototypes that will compete in Le Mans later this year will not be at Sebring, however the grid is expected to see over 60 cars start the race.  Fox sports 1 channel will carry the first three of hours of the race.  However, the Fox Sports Go app (Apple or Google Play Store) will have the entire race live as will IMSA.com.

If that's not enough for you, driving again in this year's 12 hours will be none other than "Mr. McDreamy" Patrick Dempsey.
