INAUGURAL SEBRING HISTORICS
SCHEDULED FOR OCTOBER 25-28, 2012
Sebring International Raceway announced the addition of the Sebring Historics event to the 2012 calendar. In conjunction with the 60th anniversary celebration of the Sebring 12 hour classic, the track is creating an annual event to honor the historic cars that have competed on the legendary circuit. Participation is open to all vintage and historic cars meeting the usual eligibility criteria for these types of events.
Sebring International Raceway President and General Manager Tres Stephenson commented. "Fans have always enjoyed our events featuring vintage racing. We see the need to raise the level of competition and quality of these events to properly reflect the importance of these legendary racecars and to create an event that fully integrates competitors, spectators and the Sebring community. Our goal is to provide a higher quality racing experience for our customers".
Sebring's Vice President and Director of Marketing Michelle DeLaney stated: "We have a very loyal base of racing fans who enjoy the opportunity to get close to the cars and drivers who have been a major part of our history. We plan to create a fan-friendly historic racing event that we believe will evolve into one of the major historic racing events in the USA. Our customers tell us they want to see more vintage racing and we plan to deliver an exciting opportunity for them to be part of racing history."
Ticket information and details on how to register a car for the inaugural Sebring Historics will be posted on sebringraceway.com in the near future.
Sebring International Raceway is America's oldest permanent road racing circuit. The 3.74 circuit evolved from a WWII B-17 training base called Hendricks Field. Since 1952 it has hosted the 12-hour endurance classic, America's premier sports car race.
