Sebring International Raceway

  • Sebring International Raceway is America’s oldest road racing track, with over six decades of storied history.
  • The legendary circuit evolved from Hendricks Field, a World War II airbase used to train B-17 combat crews.
  • On December 31, 1950, aviation and racing enthusiast Alec Ulmann promoted a six-hour race using the runways of the old airbase.
  • Sebring burst onto the sports car racing scene and into the history books in March 1952 with a 12-hour endurance race that is now second only to Le Mans in international prestige.
  • On 18 March 2012 Round 1 of the inaugural season of the FIA World Endurance Championship was held in a joint WEC / American Le Mans Series 12 Hours of Sebring.
  • On Friday 15 March 2019 the 1000 Miles of Sebring will be an 8-Hour FIA WEC only race, with the 12 Hours of Sebring being held the next day on Saturday 16 March for the IMSA WeatherTech Championship.
