Orlando Health Continues with Performance Tech for Sebring
DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla. (March X, 2019) – Performance Tech Motorsports and Orlando Health continue their partnership for the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring presented by Advanced Auto Parts as part of the Super Sebring weekend taking place Wednesday, March 13 through Saturday, March 16.
Orlando Health recommitted its support after a successful Rolex 24 At Daytona; Performance Tech placed second in the LMP2 class by running an incident-free race. The extended commitment garners benefit to both sides. Sebring International Raceway offers an additional connection to a Florida-based audience through visibility on the No. 38 Centinel Spine LMP2. Courtesy of Orlando Health, sports medicine athletic trainers and physical therapists, will be on site providing bodywork to the drivers to counteract Sebring’s harsh terrain.
Performance Tech and Orlando Health began the partnership in January to support driver and M.D. Dr. Robert Masson in his rookie debut at the Rolex 24 At Daytona and the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship series. Masson serves as the medical director of the Orlando Health – Health Central Hospital Spine Center of Excellence and has been a driver for Performance Tech Motorsports for three years.
“We’re happy to have them back with us for Sebring,” said Team Principal Brent O’Neill. “I think it makes the most sense to continue the partnership while we race in Florida. I think Daytona and Sebring offer them the best crowds to interact with and get their name in front of. It’s two of our biggest events and Daytona was Roberts first time running that race. I think the Orlando Health guests had a great time at the Rolex and I think they’ll enjoy Sebring as well.”
“We are extremely pleased to continue our support of Performance Tech,” said Mark Marsh, president, Orlando Health – Health Central Hospital. “Orlando Health continues to look for new and innovative ways to deliver healthcare and we appreciate the opportunity for Orlando Health’s sports medicine team to work with the drivers here at Sebring.”
Sebring International Raceway hosts the Super Sebring weekend Thursday, March 14 through Saturday, March 16. In addition to the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship series running at the historic track the World Endurance Championship, IMSA Prototype Challenge and the MICHELIN Pilot Challenge join the series for three days of on-track action.
