Job closes pro team to focus on vintage racing

By

Alex Job has decided to close the pro racing side of his championship-winning team to concentrate on servicing clients in the booming vintage motorsports sector.

“We have had a great run in professional racing,” said Job, who ran Townsend Bell and Bill Sweedler in IMSA’s GT Daytona category. “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 10 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.

“We have a few projects that are under way and I have a dedicated staff of people who want to continue to rebuild the past. 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.”

Alex Job Racing leaves the pro world with 10 Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring and two Rolex 24 At Daytona victories, five championships and 70 wins to its credit.
