Coming up is the second IMSA Race of 2022 at the famed Sebring International Raceway in Sebring, Florida. The 70th running of the 12 Hours of Sebring by Mobil 1 will start on the morning of March 19, 2022 and end later that night in the darkness. The Sebring facility is very special as it is the last of it’s kind in the United States for a major full race being held on an Airport Circuit and former training facility for B-17 pilots from World War 2.
The 17 turn 3.74 mile layout is notorious for it’s VERY BUMPY racing surface and it is a very demanding race for the 12 hours on both man and machine.
Most “traditionalist” racers and enthusiasts alike would like to keep it that way as part of our motorsport history and lets hope it’s kept that way. As they say in the racing community……”Respect the Bumps”!
Just thought with this post, we would put up some of our favorite pics from Sebring past races that we have featured before in some of our articles as a tribute to this great event in International Sports Car Racing from “Back in the Day”
As always, until next time…….TACH IT UP!!!
