    This is the Statt Mann Baby. Time to Scatt a little bit. Some thoughts on Saturday’s 12 hours of Sebring. A great weekend! An eight-hour World Endurance Championship race on Friday and the IMSA Sebring 12 Hour on Saturday. We need more weekends like that. Eleven drivers did both races. Just a great show. My hat’s off to NBC Sports or IMSA for building a video promo that didn’t feature a crash of any kind. Somebody should get an award; certainly a raise. I like that no one has bothered to repave the Sebring track. It’s bumpy, just short of an off-road race. The drivers complained but they drove on it anyway, not like some who complain for a living. Saturday they raced in the rain in horrible conditions and still put on a great show. I continue to be amazed that Mazda hasn’t been able to make their prototype work for an entire race. Even the German Team Joest hasn’t been able to make the thing get to the end at speed at the front of the line. Finally at the end of the race only two cars didn’t finish and one of those went out with less than nine minutes to go. What an incredible show! Peace.
