44 For Sebring
United Nations Motorsports Withdraws
received the confirmation from team spokeswoman Jill Savage this
morning: the United Nations Motorsports team was unable to secure
the funding necessary and will not be at Sebring.
Ms Savage indicated that
while the team was down, they are not out for the count. They are
continuing their quest for funding and now have their eyes set on
the LMES event at Monza, in the hope that a Le Mans invitation would
follow. The remainder of the ALMS season would be next.
The Hyper Sport Panoz
Esperante has also been withdrawn, leaving 44 cars for the Mobil1
12 Hours of Sebring. That total includes a still very healthy 19
cars in the GT Class.
