One of the better stories in the Rolex 24 at Daytona field this year is the Team Seattle entry, which runs in partnership with Alex Job Racing in the GT Daytona class.
The focus for Team Seattle “The Heart of Racing” is on winning the race, but also on collecting maximum dollars for children’s pediatric care.
“We are entering our 18th year of combining racing with our passion of raising money to help the Seattle Children’s Hospital and pediatric cardiac health care nationally,” said Don Kitch, Team Seattle-The Heart of Racing team manager. The organization has thus far raised more than $5.5 million.
Fundraising is the goal; here’s the story about the car that will be doing so with a driver lineup that includes Ian James, Mario Farnbacher, Marco Holzer and Alex Riberas in the No. 23 Porsche 911 GT America.
