12 Hours of Sebring

Postby RaceOddity » Wed Oct 05, 2016 10:55 pm

Here we go Jerry,Sebring at last!
This is the Spark release of Sir Stirling's OSCA MT4 that he drove to an overall win at the 1954
12 Hours of Sebring.

I'm pretty happy with the cockpit detail. This isn't anything like the cars that win Sebring these days.
I have a bunch, but lets see what you got. Post us up a few Sebring models!

I don't have any Sebring cars, but having been to the race once in 2010 I'm looking forward to following this thread.

Thankyou gentlemen. Well it's been a long time coming and so here are 1 or 2 more just to entice a few more posts.
This is the 1983 and 2011 winners.
Love them both for different reasons.
The Oreca Pug was a crowd favourite.
Just gotta love those privateer winners!

Now then, happy Thursday.

This thread is absolutely open to all. Jerry (JBRedondo) and I have kicked the idea around for ages but never did it till now.
Really looking forward to what he might have in store.
Anyways, here are a couple more

Alright, this last one is a push, but the Mclaren did run at Sebring, only in the FIA GT Championship in 1997. ;)
C'mon, you already knew I'm a McLaren guy... 8-)

Let see a few more,gentlemen.

Wonderful stuff Danny, I have those as well. The TSM Brumos Porsche is

Great additions.

I've another of these Toyota/Eagles about, Same Andy Wallace connection and basically same car but 1 year removed.
Also Same result with a win.
And of course Astons DBR9 winner

Scott, thanks for waking me up from my mental hibernation. This is good.

I'll start with 1970. The legendary 2nd place finish by Steve McQueen/Peter Revson in the private Porsche 908. To be fair, Revson drove approx.70% of the race, 2-3 seconds faster per lap. Steve on the other hand drove with sprain(broken?)leg.

Image
Image
Image

1971 and solid win by Porsche Martini Racing, drivers Elford/Larrousse.

Image
Image
Image

1972 winners were the same drivers/car combination, that won previous race at Daytona.
Ickx/Andretti/Ferrari 312PB

Image
Image

1973 and the winners were Haywood/Gregg/Helmick in mr.Helmick's private Porsche Carrera RSR

Image
Image

That's it for today and I will add few more soon.
Jerry

There's not a bad model at all in that bunch. I'm really liking the way this thread is flowing.

A couple in the last lot that I need - BMW because it's beautiful and has an Australian connection with Moffat, and the 333SP because, well because it's a Ferrari!

Who makes the Batmobile Jerry?

Martin, it's just a pity his name doesn't appear anywhere on the car. Moffat replaced Peterson as Redman's co-driver in the #25 car, while Stuck and Posey were entered in the #24 car. When that failed, they also co-drover the #25 car to victory. Both cars have been made by Minichamps.

Thanks, it's my favorite 917 livery. I'd like to see Spark to return their attention to P917's and 908's. There are still so many, they didn't do.

One of my favorites. There was an interesting article in October Motorsport about this car I highly recommend.

Thanks, this is one of the older Minichamps packaged as factory models.
