Sebring Raceway, which has hosted the famed 12 Hour race ever since 1952, is a paradise for sportscar aficionados all over the world. What was originally a temporary raceway is now permanent and utilized year-round for club racing and testing, built on the runways and connected roadways of a former US Army Air Base.
The legendary 12 Hours of Sebring is still held, and the track also offers the Skip Barber Racing School in the winter. Because of the warm environment, several teams use Sebring for testing in winter.
There aren’t many grandstands here. The majority of fans prefer to roam around and see the action from numerous vantage points. Thousands of motorhomes are parked alongside the route. The Raceway becomes a sea of RVs as many fans stay for the entire four days.
Because the 348-acre venue has only minor elevation changes, there are instead viewing mounds at strategic areas to provide spectators with a better view, but they don’t offer any shade. Turn 3 and the Hairpin do have grandstands, making for two fantastic places to view the race.
Race teams establish their own makeshift garages at Sebring. This area is open to all Sebring fans, making Sebring a place you can get close to the action.
