The team has scored over 70 class wins since 1995 including two in the Rolex 24 at Daytona, two in the Le Mans 24 Hours and 10 in the Sebring 12 Hours. The team has won five GT championships, and has amassed 48 pole positions and 106 podium finishes.

"We have had a great run in professional racing," said team owner Alex Job. "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 an 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 out of its Tavares, Florida shop.

"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 continued. "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."
