General accessible parking for guests with disabilities is available on a first come, first-parked basis. Given that Sebring International Raceway features flat, hardpan terrain, ADA parking is normally accessible in all areas of the property. Paved ADA parking spaces are available on a first some, first-parked basis at the Turn 3, Turn 6 and Turn 17 viewing areas.
An authorized state-issued accessible parking placard or license plate is required to park in designated accessible parking areas, and by state law the person who the pass is issued to must be present in the vehicle. Law Enforcement Officers will be performing checks to ensure that person is present in the vehicle.
Accessible (disabled permit or license) parking areas are designated for car and light truck (i.e. pickup trucks) vehicles. Oversize vehicles will be directed to alternate areas.
The size of the race event and traffic patterns may impact your parking location. General parking in the Raceway’s ADA spots fill quickly so guests with disabilities are advised to arrive early on race days.
Golf carts and wheel chair accessible trams are utilized during major events at Sebring International Raceway to assist disabled guests, free of charge, to certain destinations throughout the property.
The Raceway recognizes the importance of service animals in assisting guests with visual and other impairments are welcomed throughout the property. A service animal is defined by the ADA as a dog that has been individually trained to do work or perform tasks for an individual with a disability. Tasks performed by the dog must be directly related to the person’s disability. Emotional support, therapy, comfort or companion animals that provide comfort by being with a person are NOT qualified by the ADA as service animals.
The ADA requires that service animals are under the control of the handler at all times.
- The service animal must be leashed, harnessed or tethered at all times, unless these would hinder the service the service animal is trained to perform.
- If a service animal behaves in a way that poses a direct threat to the health or safety of others, has a history of such behavior, or is not under the control of the handler, that animal may be excluded.
Guests are responsible for caring for and supervising the service animal, including toileting (bringing their own pet waste disposal bags), feeding, grooming and veterinary care.
