AJR Visits Heartland Hospital

Marc Lieb, Timo Bernhard, Lucas Luhr and Romain Dumas spent this morning at Heartland Hospital in Sebring, visiting patients and performing a simulated pit stop. The patients all signed the rear engine cover of the number 24 McKenna / mail2web / Alex Job Racing / Porsche 911 GT3 RSR.

The drivers found time to sign autographs for children in the pediatric ward, visited with new mothers and had a discussion with middle school children to discuss the week’s action at Sebring International Raceway. The patients and school children then signed the rear engine cover of the #24 RSR.

"We wanted to give the children someone to follow in this weekend's race," said Marc Lieb. "Each patient, new mother and school child signed the engine cover so they can watch their car race on Saturday."

"You could really tell that we brightened the day for the children," said Romain Dumas. "I had the chance to race [patient] Jarred Browning on the race car mountain in the children's play area in the pediatric ward, unfortunately he beat me two-out-of-three tries. I hope our race on Saturday goes better. It was a really nice way to spend the morning, away from the pressures of the track."

"We consider Sebring our home track as it is just two-hours south of our shop,” explained Alex Job. “It was a good opportunity for the crew and the drivers to help the kids get their minds off their situation and to get ours off of racing for a while."

Well done Alex Job Racing.
