Le Mans, Daytona. Sebring. To the average onlooker, these are simply motor racing events. To those most intimate with their nuances, they transcend time and evoke a passion bordering on obsession. Whether standing atop the podium in 1923 or 2015, to earn victory here is a championship in and of itself. To win is vindication, a tangible acknowledgement of greatness, and an open invitation into the most exclusive of company. To come close and fall short is heartbreak, agony, and utter despair.
While the Machismo 12 Hour Race isn’t (yet) a part of motor racing’s “Triple Crown,” there is a definite aura surrounding the race that draws a similar passion from those looking to conquer it. In it’s brief but storied existence, the race has drawn team’s from several continents, speaking several languages, all seeking a single win… but only a select few have found what they came looking for.
