Conquest Racing With Ferrari and Corsa Horizon are looking to keep the strong momentum going as they prepare for the second round of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship. The team started off the season with immediate success, claiming a third place finish at the 24 Hours of Daytona in the GTD Class. As they set their sights on the upcoming 12 Hours of Sebring, Manny Franco, Albert Costa Balboa, and Cédric Sbirrazzuoli will be aiming for another return to the podium with the #34 Corsa Horizon Ferrari 296 GT3. 

The 3.741-mile, 17-turn high-speed circuit stands out as one of the country’s most infamously demanding road courses. Its rugged terrain is renowned for testing the limits of even the most seasoned drivers, featuring lengthy straights, high-speed bends, and intricately technical sectors. Nevertheless, the team remains steadfastly dedicated to pushing the limits to achieve another strong result. 

“We had a very strong start to the season, and everyone on the team is determined to show our strengths once again,” said Manny Franco. “Sebring International Raceway is a track that I know very well, and although I know the 12 Hours of Sebring will be a big challenge, our goal remains the same. We want to be consistently competitive throughout each and every round, and we’ll be taking every opportunity to apply the knowledge we’ve gained in order to set ourselves up for success at Sebring.” 

“As we look forward to the next round, we want to further confirm the speed and competitiveness our team has shown so far,” echoed Albert Costa Balboa. “This team, and my teammates, have what it takes to achieve another strong result. It won’t be an easy task to come out on top, and we are realistically targeting a Top 5 finish, but of course we will be doing everything in our power to be on the podium. This is a very difficult track, and we have completed some testing to ensure we’re ready for the challenge. I’m looking forward to the race, and I’ll be working hard to do my best for the team.”

“After the great result that the team had in Daytona, I’m really looking forward to the 12 Hours of Sebring as it’s one of my favorite tracks,” added Cédric Sbirrazzuoli. “The team has prepared very well for this event and we’re always doing what we can to gain more experience, so I believe we can continue the strong momentum from Daytona and carry it into Sebring.” 

The event will commence on Thursday, March 14th with three practice sessions, with Qualifying and an Autograph Session to follow on Friday. The 12 Hours of Sebring will take place on Saturday, March 16th at 9:40 AM ET.
