Allan McNish Grand Marshal
The FIA World Endurance Championship and IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship have announced that endurance racing legend Allan McNish has been named as Grand Marshal for both the 1000 Miles of Sebring and 67th Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring Presented by Advance Auto Parts.
The 2013 World Champion, synonymous with Audi’s LMP1 dominance in endurance racing, is a four-time winner of the Twelve Hours of Sebring (2004, 2006, 2009 and 2012) and knows better than most what is required of drivers at this most challenging of sportscar classics. His last victory at Sebring was on the occasion of the WEC’s first ever race on March 18, 2012.
McNish’s illustrious and storied career also includes three American Le Mans Series championship titles (2000, 2006 and 2007), the ALMS being a predecessor to the current IMSA championship, and three victories at the 24 Hours of Le Mans (1998, 2008 and 2013). On very many of these occasions, the Scot was accompanied on the path to success by Tom Kristensen and Rinaldo “Dindo” Capello.
Allan McNish: “It’s a great honor to be named Grand Marshal for both events and I look forward very much to the entire weekend. Sebring is a great old school track with fantastic fans and always amazing races. I was lucky enough to have won the 12-hour race four times and have so many memories of great battles through the years. When you win there, you know you’ve achieved a significant victory and beaten every challenge, both technical and physical.”
