TAVARES, Fla. - After 28 seasons,Alex Job Racing will cease its professional racing operations and focus on its historic restoration and competition business.
Alex Job Racing has been one of the most successful teams in sports car racing with over 70 wins (since 1995); including two Rolex 24 GT Class wins in 1999 and 2013. This record is supported by 48 pole positions and 106 podium finishes. The team has won five championships (GTC 2013, 2012, GT in 2004, 2003 and 2002) complimented by their two GT class wins at Le Mans. The team also boasts ten Sebring 12-hour wins. Alex Job Racing was inducted into the Sebring Hall of Fame in March of 2016.
"We have had a great run in professional racing," Alex Job, team owner said. "Together with my wife Holly we built a close-knit racing team from basically our garage at home. We went from running a Porsche 911 in SCCA enduro to winning the 12 hours of Sebring race ten times as both a Porsche factory team and independent operation. A great line-up of drivers has driven our cars to wins at Le Mans and Daytona all backed-up by a great team of mechanics who really became our extended family over the years."
The company will continue with its historic restoration business out of its Tavares, Florida shop.
"We have a few projects that are underway and I have a dedicated staff of people who want to continue to rebuild the past," Job continued. "I am proud of the restorations we have completed so far. It is rewarding to see the transformation of the cars when they arrive in our shop and we restore them and then the reaction from the owner when we deliver them fully restored and ready hit the track again."
