12 Hours of Sebring
The 12 Hours of Sebring is the second round of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship and is one of the four endurance races that makes up the Tequila Patron North American Endurance Cup.
The race is held on the notoriously bumpy Sebring International Raceway, the site of a former World War Two airfield. This year the event will take place on 16-18 March, where United Autosports will enter one Ligier JS P217.
LIGIER JS P2
The Ligier JS P2 was launched in June 2014 and was homologated for three years and is the first LMP2 car to come from the Ligier factory at Le Mans, France. The car can be powered by one of three engines, the Honda HPD V6 double turbo, the Judd HK V8 or the Nissan VK45 V8 and started its life by taking pole position and a podium in the LMP2 category for its Le Mans 24 Hours debut in June 2014. The car has also won the 2015 FIA World Endurance Championship LMP2 title along with the Daytona 24 Hours, the Sebring 12 Hours and Petit Le Mans in 2016.
