In 1983, Wayne Baker's GTO 934 was the first to accomplish an overall win at Sebring. History in the making!!!
Number 15 on the list was the GTO class and overall winner, Wayne Baker in his Porsche 934, co-driven by Kees Nierop and Jim Mullen.
After 12 grueling hours, they were able to outlast the faster GTP prototypes and GTX racers who had various mechanical issues during the race. Their winning margin of victory was only 90 seconds over the second place finisher, Bob Akin in his Porsche 935 with his co-drivers Dale Whittington and John O'Steen.

Bumble Bee - MY TRIP CROSS-COUNTRYWe have lent our beloved Bumble Bee to our friends John and Michele Jenkins in 2004 for their cross-counrty road trip due to their Porsche breaking down in Arizona; where Wayne Baker rescued them. They have exchanged their Porsches in Yuma and so they continued their trip with BumbleBee and put 14,000 miles on it. They have successfully completed their mission and have never gotten in an accident. They were on a mission to find the best BBQ joints in America and to visit friends and family on the East Coast. (that was before the Food Network guy doing the same in a recent TV show...)
See picture below former president Bush's favorite BBQ place in Llamo,Texas.
GREETINGS FROM ARKANSAS:
Wayne: Found a 10/9 mm open-end wrench laying next to the road that extends from under the floor board back thru the tunnel. Your throttle won't be sticking any more. It was rubbing/wedged next to the throttle rod. Little Rock, AR - 25 Sep 2004
GREETINGS FROM VIRGINIA:
You know the guys you see in KFC commercial on TV? we took this picture at the London, KY Chicken Festival. Blocks of booths, tents, food carts, etc. Blocks... Not one whole damn town. Not one single chicken. Not one. Roanoke, VA - 28 Sep 2004
GREETINGS FROM BERKELEY PLANTATION :
HELLO FROM THE MAINE COAST/GREETINGS FROM FAR FAR AWAY:
Drove through New York, Vermont, and New Hampshire today. A beautiful clear autumn day with crisp air, turning (color) leaves, and two lane roads. Bumble Bee is running great. Portsmouth, NH - 3 Oct 2004
GREETINGS FROM CANADA!
BumbleBee wrote the postcard this time:
"I got a break today! They put me on this big boat so I get to ride. It's not fair, though. They get to sit up in a lounge while I ride in this dingy hole. Me, with my shiny wax job, and no one is allowed to see me. I really looked good next to all the fall leaves. Yellow is the best color with gold, red , and orange. Runnin' down the road, Bumble Bee." - New Brunswick ~ Nova Scotia, Canada 04 Oct 09:00 am 2004
Move over lobster, we're eating scallops now. O← scallop juice! After lunch we'll be driving around the island enroute to Halifax. This will be last card for a while. Digby, Nova Scotia - 07 Oct 2004
Valves adjusted here at 40,771. Just above freezing this morning. At least the wind wasn't blowing. Will set oil & change it as soon as I can find Castrol. Best Regards, BB Duluth MN -12 oct 2004
