Historic Sebring Will Once Again Host HSR Spring Fling Season Opener

By

The 2022 Historic Sportscar Racing (HSR) season officially begins in just two weeks with the opening day of on-track activity for the HSR Spring Fling at Sebring International Raceway, April 6-8.

The season opener race for the fourth-straight year, the Sebring Spring Fling returns with the same Wednesday through Friday weekday schedule format that proved popular with competitors and race fans alike when it was introduced last year.

Among the must-see entries set for this year’s event is the unique 1976 No. 5 Porsche 935/K1 from Amalfi Racing that returns to South Florida after previously competing in the HSR Classic Sebring 12 Hour. The K1 will be driven once again by Matteo Ferrer, a 26-year-old Italian who is a champion in FIA Masters Historic Formula One competition in Europe.

Ferrer swept both HSR Group 9 WeatherTech Sprint races in the K1 in his first visit to Barber Motorsports Park in May of 2019. With other drivers, Amalfi debuted the K1 at the HSR Classic Sebring 12 Hour in 2016 and battled for the Group B win throughout the 2017 Classic Sebring before being just edged for the victory on the last lap of the final heat.
