    Default AOD Racing achieves a runner-up finish!



    (Pictured: The AOD themed Chevy Corvette C7 Prototype that both teams piloted today)

    Over the past few weeks, AOD Racing has been gearing up for our next big endurance challenge:
    12 Hours of team-based racing at the storied Sebring International Raceway.


    Opened in 1950 for motorsports, Sebring originally started life as a United States Army Air Forces training base. From 1941 to 1946, pilots trained at Sebring to fly the B-17 Flying Fortress.
    Pure determination to work as a team and overcome adversity pushed us to recover from being 4 laps off the lead early in the running, back to the lead lap by the final hour, and in contention to challenge for the win.

    We came up just short of the victory ( 2nd place finish ), however there is nothing to hang our heads about as this effort will go down as our top finishing position in a 6+ hour endurance event thus far as well as our THIRD Podium finish in a row!

    Both of our teams honorably represented AOD on-track and put on display yet another inspiring effort!

    Well done all, as always a excellent team effort to all, another 20 minutes would've been interesting as we came within a pitstop of gap

    Amazing job guys! It takes only the best to even survive such a long race at Sebring, but you ran strong and were consistently gaining throughout the entire race! A race like that I can only describe as AOD caliber!

    Great job, AOD Racing team! However, please do not feel the need to overcome me as I am on your side.

    Thanks all, we appreciate the support. I fully expect our group to have AOD in victory lane this year, stay tuned for more events in the future...
