Tom K Grand Marshal at Sebring

Tom Kristensen will be busy two days in a row when the FIA World Endurance Championship and IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship race at Sebring in one and a half months’ time.

The Danish racing driver is the most winning drivers at Sebring with a total of six victories, and the track decided to name one of the corners after him, following his retirement from professional racing.

This is far from the first time that Kristensen will handle this role. He has had the honour several times in both the FIA WEC and the IMSA series.

This task will result in him not being able to take the role as neither FIA Drivers Advisor nor TV commentator during the Formula 1 race in Bahrain, which is run on the same weekend.

There will be various other jobs to do for Tom Kristensen during the Super Sebring event, so it won’t just be about waiving the green flag.

The FIA WEC 1000 Miles race runs on Friday 20 March from 17.00 CET, while the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship 12 Hours run on the 21 March, starting 15.40 CET.
