De Phillippi set for 12 Hours of Sebring debut with Stevenson Motorsports

Stevenson Motorsports has confirmed Connor De Phillippi as their third driver for the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring, as part of a slightly adjusted lineup in its two Audi R8 LMS entries. De Phillippi joins Andrew Davis and Robin Liddell in the team’s No. 6 Audi, which will mark the young American’s first 12-hour start at Sebring. He has past experience at the track from his open-wheel career.

He enjoyed a standout drive at the Hankook 24 Hours of Dubai, also in one of the new Audis.

“For 2016 I was looking to make a return to more racing in North America, and as my European plans developed I tried to align myself with top teams that would be competing in the new Audi GT3 machinery,” he said.

“Stevenson Motorsports was at the top of my list, and after we made contact it all moved forward from there! The 24 Hours of Dubai was my first time in the Audi, and starting off with such a strong personal performance in completely foreign machinery gives me a great feeling heading into Sebring.”
