Bob Tullius inducted into Sebring's Racing Hall of Fame

The proverbial third Saturday in March meant our annual pilgrimage to the Twelve Hours of Sebring right in our own back yard in central Florida. The weather was spectacular with sunny, warm afternoons and clear, cool nights that were perfect for both on track racing and infield spectator festivities. Besides the excitement surrounding the new formula of racing that the Tudor United SportsCar Championship brought to the track this year, the weekend was highlighted by recognition of one of the legends in Jaguar motorsports -- Bob Tullius, patriarch of Group 44 and local Sebring resident, was inducted into the Sebring Hall of Fame. In addition to an earlier series of Triumphs that sported the familiar green and white livery, Tullius helped bring Jaguar back to the foreground of the sport with V-12 E-Types as well as XJSs and culminating in the XJR-7 in 1986. Other inductees into the class of 2014 Sebring Hall of Fame included Vic Elford, Peter Gregg, Wayne Taylor and Brumos Porsche of Jacksonville.
