SRO GT America Powered by AWS Returns to Sebring May 3-5

After two race weekends spent on the west coast in California, the GT America Powered by AWS grid is now headed to the sunshine state for the upcoming round at Sebring International Raceway.
From the rolling hills of Sonoma, to the narrow streets of Long Beach, the field will now be preparing themselves for one of the most challenging tracks in the world, as they put themselves to the test across Sebring’s rough surface and sweltering heat.

Sebring will welcome spectators into a vibrant paddock atmosphere where fans can get up close to their favorite teams and drivers from five different series, coupled with autograph sessions, a Car Corral, and a grid walk on Sunday afternoon for the feature Fanatec GT World Challenge America race.
