Fans of Sebring International Raceway and IMSA racing have been gifted with three significant additions to the 2020 Sebring race schedule.
IMSA announced a revised 2020 season schedule Friday, which adds an IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship race and an IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge event for Sebring July 16-18. While spectators will not be permitted to attend these events, the two hour, 40-minute WeatherTech Series sprint race will be televised live on NBCSN.
In addition, IMSA announced that two races have been added to the Nov. 11-14 Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring Presented by Advance Auto Parts schedule. Lamborghini Super Trofeo and Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge races will run alongside the 12-Hour Classic and the Alan Jay Automotive Network 120 Michelin Pilot Challenge Race. Both the Lamborghini Super Trofeo and Porsche GT3 series typically produce highly competitive races and will help make an already busy weekend of racing even bigger with four races over the four-day period.
“The addition of a new weekend of racing in July and the Lamborghini and Porsche events on our November weekend is great news for our fans and the entire motorsports industry,” said Wayne Estes, president and general manager of Sebring International Raceway. “The races in July will be tremendous televised events and we could not have asked for better additions to the November schedule than the races IMSA has added.”
The Nov. 11-14 events were rescheduled from their traditional March dates, and all tickets for that event will be honored in November. Additional tickets for the November races will be made available later this summer, and tickets for the 2021 SuperSebring activities, which will include the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring, the FIA WEC 1000 Miles of Sebring and the Alan Jay Automotive Network 120 will go on sale this fall.
