BRASELTON, Ga. (December 12, 2001) -- Race fans will have the opportunity to save money on tickets to the first two races of the 2002 American Le Mans Series season as part of a special promotional offer.
The Florida Doubleheader Discount will offer discounted ticket prices to those purchasing tickets to both the 50th annual Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring, presented by Dodge, on March 16 and the Grand Prix of the Americas in Miami on April 7. The offer is a joint effort between Sebring International Raceway and Raceworks, LLC, the organizer of the event on the Miami Downtown street circuit.
America's oldest sports car race, the Sebring event will celebrate its Golden Anniversary in 2002. Many of the former winning cars and drivers from the past 50 years will be on hand during the race weekend. The event will open the American Le Mans Series season.
The Miami race will mark the return of street racing to the Miami downtown area after an absence of seven years. Previous events were among some of the most successful street racing events ever staged and were popular with both locals and visitors. The temporary racing circuit will cover 1.5 miles in the Bayfront Park area of Miami.
Race fans can buy a Superticket for Sebring and an Open Grandstand or General Admission ticket to the Miami race and receive a discount of up to $40 on the regular gate prices.
