Recently, I attended the 65th running of the Twelve Hours of Sebring, the world-famous endurance race for sports cars. Past winners include Mario Andretti and A.J. Foyt, among other giants of auto racing.
This was my first time to the Twelve Hours of Sebring race. WOW!! The sound of that many high-performance motors was incredible and incredibly loud, even with my noise-canceling headphones.
Four classes of sports cars ran in the Twelve Hours of Sebring 2017, but I watched the GT Le Mans class the closest because the cars were very recognizable: two Corvettes, two BMW M6s, a Ferrari 488, three Ford GTs, and two Porsche 911s. The Hairpin, the most famous turn at Sebring, appeared to be the most challenging spot for the drivers: hard braking, followed by hard acceleration, with drivers trying to pass and avoid getting passed. Here are the two Porsches dueling:
The No. 66 Ford GT held the lead in the GT Le Mans class for a portion of the race, and was leading when my dad and I left the race just after sundown. I made it home in time to watch the last ten minutes of the race. Much to my surprise, the No. 3 Corvette won the GT Le Mans class. WOW!!
Now, how does this apply to your property rights? The answer: Never Give Up.
The government wants your property? Never Give Up. The government isn’t offering what your property is worth? Never Give Up. The government has taken your property? Never Give Up.
P.S. If you go to the next Twelve Hours of Sebring race, you’ll need tickets, a big hat, sunblock, lots of water, snacks, headphones, sunglasses, beach chairs, shoes you can walk long distances in, hand sanitizer, and your smartphone (so you can take pictures and watch the race on TV to see what’s happening on other portions of the track),
