Krohn Racing Pre-Race Report

63rd Annual 12 Hours of Sebring

Krohn Racing Comfortable After Four Days of Testing at Sebring

Houston, Texas (March 17, 2015)… Krohn Racing returns to the historic Sebring International Raceway in Sebring, Florida this week for the 63rd Annual Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring presented by Fresh from Florida race, March 19-21. The race will be Round 2 of the 2015 IMSA TUDOR United SportsCar Championship Series.


Piloting the new No. 57 Krohn Racing Ligier JSP2 Judd prototype is team owner/driver Tracy W. Krohn alongside regular co-driver Swede Nic Jonsson and Frenchman Olivier Pla. Krohn and Jonsson have teamed for a class victory at Sebring in 2011 in the FIA WEC GTE-Am class in a Ferrari 430 GT, along with Italian Michele Rugolo.


The Krohn-Jonsson duo will be making their eighth start on the famous, and sometime infamous, 3.74-mile, 17-turn Florida circuit. Onroak Automotive development driver and now Nissan LMP1 driver Olivier Pla has three starts at Sebring with a best finish of second place in 2012 with Oak Racing.


Krohn Racing have completed two separate test sessions at Sebring in preparation for the always challenging once-around-the-clock enduro. Tracy and Nic participated in the February two-day test, and returned with Pla for another two-day test last week. The Krohn team worked on familiarizing themselves with the high downforce aerodynamic package, completing laps and gathering data on the Continental P2000 tires, which are different to the Daytona specific P1000, used in January at the 24 Hours of Daytona race, and collaborated on set-up.
