Alonso on Pole for Sebring 1,0000

Good morning from Sebring. Last night Fernando Alonso won the pole for tonight ‘s 1,000 mile World Endurance Championship event. He and the other Toyota Gazoo car will start on the front row for the 4 o’clock race. The race has an eight hour time limit if the winner has not completed 1,000 miles.

Qualifying for the 67th 12 hour Sebring race is this morning.

Some Nice Changes

The one lane vehicle bridge in the infield is no more. I was happily surprised to find a 2 lane bridge with a pedestrian walkway on one side.

The track appears to have added some lighting . Not sure is this was a request from WEC .

WEC Paddock the WEC paddock was like

The WEC paddock is like no other I’ve seen. Each car is housed in a large tent. Outside each carsc space is a small pylon showing the teams results for the sesson.

The entry to the paddock has an arch with a changing LED display showing the season’s race results.

Each team has an office across from the car area. It is a temporary rectangular structure of a good size for meetings.

This paddock was quite a contrast from the IMSA area.

Back with a new IMSA update later.

I am unable to post photos.
