Racing: Two Top-Ten Finishes for Lexus at Sebring

The two Vasser Sullivan Lexus RC F GT3 teams earned two top-10 finishes after leading 77 laps in Saturday’s Twelve Hours of Sebring this weekend. The #12 RC F GT3 earned a sixth-place result, while the #14 Lexus finished seventh.

Drivers Jack Hawksworth, Aaron Telitz and Kyle Kirkwood led 74 laps in the #14 Lexus, while Zach Veach, Frankie Montecalvo and Robert Megennis led three laps in the #12 RC F GT3.

Three hours into the race, the #14 Lexus had a brake issue, but managed to get back on the track. Driver Hawksworth fought back to third place in hour eight of the race when a Prototype competitor hit the #14 Lexus, forcing the car to the garage for repairs. Hawksworth returned to the track eight laps down and the team was able to overcome the incidents to finish seventh.

The #12 RC F GT3 ran among the top six much of the race, and moved into the lead with just over 90 minutes remaining. Shortly after the green flag dropped, the #12 Lexus incurred contact with a competitor that forced the RC F GT3 to the pit and the team went on to earn a sixth-place result.

Lexus and Vasser Sullivan Racing will have nearly two months off before returning to the track for the first sprint race of the season at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course on Sunday, May 16.
