Spectators Lining-up for Sebring Endurance Classic

Sebring, FL - Race fans are already lining-up in anticipation of the 53rd running of the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring, March 19th at historic Sebring International Raceway.

Gates open at 7 am on Wednesday, March 16, but spectators and their motorhomes started arriving this week, a Sebring tradition that dates back several decades.

"All reserved trackside parking has sold out, with the exception of the new Ulmann Straight parking/camping area," stated Sebring President and GM Tres Stephenson. "However, Sebring International Raceway features over 400 acres of unreserved spectator parking and camping. There are plenty of different ticket options still available."

Sebring's popular Superticket is available as a four-day or Saturday only ticket, and allows complete access to the Competitor's Paddock, where all the race teams are located.

"When the gates open Wednesday morning, March 16th, it will look like the Oklahoma land rush," stated Stephenson. "A large portion of Sebring's trackside is available on a first-come, first-serve basis, so fans start arriving over two weeks in advance to get their place in line."

The Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring features the world's finest sports car teams battling on the grueling 3.7-mile Sebring circuit that was originally a WWII B-17 training base known as Hendricks Field. Past winners include Mario Andretti, A.J. Foyt, Phil Hill, Dan Gurney, Al Holbert, Juan Manuel Fangio, Bobby Rahal, Bruce McLaren and Stirling Moss.

Ticket information is available at sebringraceway.com or by calling toll-free 800-626-7223.
