Quote:Sebring International Raceway

Sebring International Raceway is one of the oldest constantly used tracks in the country, set on the unused runways and support roads for the airport. The first races were in the early 1950s with the famed 12 Hours of Sebring sports car race. Currently, there are three track configurations; the 12 Hour Grand Prix Course, the Old Club Course, and the New Club Course.

Quote:Historical Note

The track is the site of the 12 Hours of Sebring Grand Prix Endurance Race that began in the early 1950s. Many famed drivers have driven here; some gaining their fame here, some lending their fame to this circuit in its early years. While the 12 Hours of Sebring is the most famous, this track is also the site of the very first Trans Am race, held as a support race before the 12 Hours in 1966. This track originally had a length of over 5 miles that incorporated many airport runways, which created many humorous stories of cars chasing airplanes and such at night. The course was later shortened to about 4.5 miles in 1986 and shortened again in 1990 to about 3.5 miles. The first time was to increase safety by putting distance between active runways and the cars and the second time to permit access to some warehouses so the track could operate throughout the year without having to close warehouse access.
