Sebring International Raceway History

Located adjacent to Sebring Regional Airport, Sebring International Raceway is home to one of the most famous races in the world – the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring. The race was twice voted the No. 1 motorsports event in North America in a prestigious fan poll conducted by USA Today. Sebring International Raceway was established in 1950 and is North America’s oldest permanent road racing facility. It is therefore known as the Birthplace of American Endurance Racing. The circuit sits on what was once a WWII B-17 combat crew training base known as Hendricks Field. Nestled among the orange groves and cattle ranches of Central Florida, Sebring International Raceway has hosted the legendary 12-hour endurance classic since 1952, which is now part of the prestigious IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship. It was the site of the first-ever FIA World Championship Sports Car Race in 1953, and in 2012 hosted the inaugural race of the FIA WEC, which returned in 2019 to run the day before the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring Presented by Advance Auto Parts. Sebring is also known as one of the most versatile testing facilities in the motorsports industry, offering a variety of circuit configurations for club and corporate events, private testing, and racing schools.
