In March each year thousands of race fans descend on the historic town of Sebring in Florida for the annual 12 hours race, that marks the start of the endurance racing season. 2013 sees the 61st running of the great American endurance classic – and it’s a race like no other on the global calendar – run on a dedicated circuit originally forged from the runways and taxiways a WWII Bomber training base it’s regarded by many as the most gruelling of the endurance classics, more so indeed than the 24 Hour races that run for twice as long.
Sound, speed and fury is what its all about at Sebring – the wide open spaces and a mix of super fast and tricky slow corners mean that there is going to be fireworks right from the off – The barnstorming run into Sebring’s daunting blind Turn One is one where watchers and drivers hold their breath and see what comes out the other side.
For those racing fans that bemoan the lack of aural delights nowadays there’s nothing to fear at Sebring – pancake flat the sound, and plenty of it, is a big part of the attraction – rumbling V8s, screaming V12s - do bring earplugs – it’s great to hear it but remember this race does run for 12 Hours!
The American Le Mans Series paddock is legendary for its friendly ‘For The Fans’ Approach – the cars are right there and the teams are (usually) happy to have fans watch them prepare for the race. The drivers are always around too – it’s a way more friendly and accessible venue than some of the European tracks – and even if you don’t manage to see your favourites in the run up to the race they’ll all be at the autograph session – leave space in your case for a 2013 selection of signed posters, postcards and the like – There’s going to be plenty of them!
Beyond the paddock there’s plenty to see and do at the circuit – The infamous Party Zone features a ‘World famous’ bikini contest, an Iron Man Challenge and live music – There are funfairs too plus manufacturer exhibitions and demos, the Car Club Corrals and exhibitions of historic race cars – Don’t forget the people watching either – the infamous ‘Cow Parade’ and the unique home built Sebring fan stands - You will not be short of things to fill the time
