Advance sales at record pace for Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring

BRASELTON, Ga. - Advance sales for the 52nd annual Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring are up more than 21 percent from last year and are on course to break the event's all-time attendance mark that was set for the 50th anniversary race in 2002, track officials have announced. The event will open the 2004 season for the American Le Mans Series.

"We've been delighted with advance sales for the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring," said Tres Stephenson, President of Sebring International Raceway. "With special prices in place, more people are taking advantage and buying early."

Advance prices will be in effect until February 29, Stephenson said.

"We are also seeing a lot of first-time buyers," he said. "That's a good indication of the growing popularity of the American Le Mans Series and the international stature of Sebring. These people have heard about the event or have seen it on TV and want to experience Sebring for themselves.

"As always at Sebring, there are so many items of interest for the fans," Stephenson said. "The return of Danny Sullivan, the All-Female racing team, the new and interesting cars and drivers -- plus the fun atmosphere that is Sebring. All of those things have created more interest in the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring."

The 52nd annual Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring will get the green flag at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, March 20. Ticket information is available online at www.sebringraceway.com or by calling (863) 655-1442 (toll-free 800-626-RACE).
