The 12 Hours of Sebring is an annual motorsport endurance race for sports cars held at Sebring International Raceway, on the site of the former Hendricks Army Airfield World War II air base in Sebring, Florida. The event is the second round of the United SportsCar Championship and in the past has been a round of the now defunct World Sportscar Championship, IMSA GT Championship and American Le Mans Series. It is known as preparation for the 24 Hours of Le Mans, as the track's extremely bumpy surface, combined with south-central Florida's perennial hot weather, is a test of a car's reliability. After Daytona, the next match was at Sebring. Once again, Shelby fielded his Cobras and the two GT 40's. One of the drivers hung on the tail of the leading Ferrari and bided his time. Another challenger, the Corvette Chaparral was a strong contender. The other GT 40 developed suspension trouble and was out of the race. It was now up to the remaining car. A heavy rainstorm added to the tension. It turned into a grueling race. The rear end broke in the leading Ferrari and the car retired. This cleared the way for the GT-40 to come in second behind the Chaparral. Shelby and his team were ready to take on the world.
