March 14, 2024Ramon Jones

Sebring International Raceway was established in 1950 on the site of a former WWII airbase, Hendricks Army Airfield. It was originally built for use as an airport racing circuit and has since evolved into one of the most iconic road racing tracks in the world.

First held in 1952, the 12 Hours of Sebring is one of the oldest and most prestigious endurance races in North America. The event has been a part of many different competitions. This year it’s the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship that returns for its second installment of the 2024 season. The race will feature all 4 WeatherTech championship classes including the new SC63 GTP car from Iron Lynx Lamborghini which has been undergoing testing for the past few months.

Sebring is known for its challenging conditions, including its bumpy surface which puts immense stress and wear on both the drivers and cars. The track features a mix of fast straights, tight corners, and technical sections, making it a favorite among drivers and fans alike. One of the best aspects of the race is the fan access. Fans can enjoy views during the race up close and personal with many of the campgrounds being positions along the track.

Last years race ended in dramatic fashion with the race being decided in the closing minutes.

The 12 Hours of Sebring will be streamed on the NBC Sports App, and Peacock, which will have coverage of the event from flag to flag beginning at 9:30 a.m. on March 16. USA Network also will have coverage of the race from 4-10 p.m EST.
