Your going to have to double up on supplies and take a extra day or so off of work if you are planning to join the annual migration of race fans to Sebring International Raceway in 2019. It has been announced that Sebring International Raceway will host twin, that mean two, 12-hour endurance races in March 2019 as the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) returns to the famed central Florida circuit. The race will be run the same weekend as the now traditional International Motorsports Association (IMSA) sanctioned Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring.
“We believe this is going to be one of the most exciting and action-packed Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring weekends in our venue’s storied history," stated Sebring Raceway President and General Manager Wayne Estes.
The 12 Hours of Sebring IMSA WeatherTech Championship will be held from 10:00am to 10:00pm on Saturday, and from 12 midnight to 12 noon Sunday the FIA WEC.
The announcement was made in Mexico City where the WEC is running the fifth race of its 2017 season.
Sebring hosted the first FIA WEC race in 2012, and was also the site of the first FIA sanctioned Sports Car Manufacturers World Championship race in 1953.
Further information will be released at a later date when details are confirmed. The 66th Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring is on March 17th, 2018.
