Sebring's 50th Anniversary Poster Features Legendary Cars & Drivers

Sebring, FL -- The legendary cars and drivers which made Sebring the mecca of sports car racing in North America are featured in the official poster for the 50th Annual Mobil1 12 Hours of Sebring Presented by Dodge, March 13-16.

The poster depicts former Sebring-winning cars, paced by a Frazer Nash, winner of the first Sebring 12 hour race in 1952, and the defending champion Audi R8. As the cars race down the front straight, standing along the pit wall are several legendary drivers from five decades of racing at Sebring.

"Race fans who carefully study the poster will see quite a few familiar faces in the background," stated Sebring Raceway Director Tres Stephenson. "Race founder Alec Ulmann and legendary drivers such as Dan Gurney, Mario Andretti, Carroll Shelby and Brian Redman can be seen, along with many officials, team managers and journalists who played a key role in Sebring's history. This poster will be a cherished souvenir for all sports car racing fans."

Artist Robin Thompson created the poster. Sebring's Track Historian and Communications Director Ken Breslauer provided the historical insight.

The limited edition poster is currently on sale at Sebring International Raceway's gift shop, and can also be ordered by phone for $10 plus $5 for shipping in a mailing tube.

Tickets to the Mobil1 12 Hours of Sebring Presented by Dodge are available at advance purchase rates through March 1st. After that date, gate prices will apply. A limited number of Trackside Parking/Camping spaces are still available, along with a very limited number of Club Sebring memberships.
