Championship-winning team owner Alex Job (above) is ceasing his team’s professional racing operations and will instead focus upon its historic restoration and competition business.
Alex Job Racing has been one of the most successful teams in sports car racing, scoring more than 70 wins since 1995 — including Rolex 24 GT Class wins in 1999 and 2013. The team also recorded 48 pole positions and 106 podium finishes, and has won five championships — GTC in 2012 and 2013, and GT in 2002, 2003 and 2004 — as well as taking two GT class wins at Le Mans. Alex Job Racing also boasts 10 class wins in the 12 Hours of Sebring, which led to its induction into the Sebring Hall of Fame in March of 2016.
“We have had a great run in professional racing,” noted 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 enduros to winning the 12 Hours of Sebring race 10 times as both a Porsche factory team and an independent operation. A great lineup 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 to conduct its historic restoration business out of its Tavares, Florida, shop.
“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,” 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.”
