Fergus, hope you enjoy your first 12 hrs. Sebring is an odd place but hosts a cool race!
So who else is going? Right now, I plan on heading south in the second week of March and camp in Green Park, one of the most lovely, disgusting places on earth.

Pay to park, imho. However, I camp so that's all I know.
Once you get into the facility, the tram stops only along the front stretch / back stretch / paddock area:
The place is flat but it's much bigger than you'll realize, so if you shuttle in, you'll be left to your feet only. The issue with driving is parking is first come first serve, so you may have some trouble finding a place to park, even if temporarily. You WILL be able to find a spot, but it may or may not be worth it. I just don't know and would suggest trying to drive in and park. 55 may be worth it.
