After 28 years, Alex Job Racing will cease its professional racing operations and focus on its historic restoration and competition business, the team announced on Wednesday.
It comes after a partial-season IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship effort with an Audi R8 LMS this year, as well as competing in the IMSA Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge USA by Yokohama series.
The Florida-based team has been one of the most successful sports car racing organizations, with more than 70 wins, five championships, a record ten class victories in the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring, as well as two class wins a piece both in the Rolex 24 at Daytona and 24 Hours of Le Mans.
Alex Job Racing was inducted into the Sebring Hall of Fame in March 2016.
“We have had a great run in professional racing,” Job said. “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 ten 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.”
The company will continue with its historic restoration business.
“We have a few projects that are underway and I have a dedicated staff of people who want to continue to rebuild the past,” Job said. “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.”
