Turn 7, the hairpin, across from the hotel.

Turn 10

As far as I recall there are only two big screens, one being at the Spring Break party area, the other being at the aforementioned hairpin.


We are coming down from Virginia and supposedly have a hotel room on the lake (not name brand hotel so fingers crossed) and 4 day super ticket not getting there till Wednesday night though and the infield parking pass we aren't camping but we will be at the track earlier then 8 with the exception of Thursday might be closer 9:30.

I really appreciate that I was aiming for the hairpin my father passed away a few years back and my mom loves the cars not so much the racing and she wont let me go to VIR anymore without her wanting to go so she was wanting to go to florida and I wanted sebring so split it and that would be a great place for her to sit and read and watch the screen

Sorry to hear about your dad, that's too bad. Cool that your mom is happy to come down with you and partake in the race.

Yeah, the hairpin is always a safe bet as a place to set up basecamp for the day.

Just be advised that you will have to trek through a bit of green park to get there, so if your mom is not prepared for questionable behavior she might be in for a surprise. Also be aware there isn't a whole lot of shade, so be prepared for that. There's also a proper bathroom behind the viewing berm at the hairpin, about 100 yards away, so you don't have to use the porta potties if you don't want to (just ask and someone can point you towards them). Let us know if you have any other questions. Hope you can make it for our tentative get together on Friday evening.

Sebring is a bit of a shitshow compared to other tracks I venture to, so you will probably have to call them. Worst comes to worst, I have bought tickets at the gate before.

I have never come in and out of the track before, only camped, but it seems like many people park between the midway and Big Bend. That would be a nice place to park as you are inside the facility but outside the track.

Looking at the track map that's what I was thinking I just want a relatively short walk to the car if we set up in the hair pin my mom is in her late 60's so less walking the better for her

Thanks, that's good to know. It's only the 'delivery address' I have a problem with (why they make this mandatory, I don't know!), the billing address is accepted fine. Might just put some random address in for delivery, it's not gonna be used anyway, and I doubt Sebring even bothers with sending around advertising, they don't run enough events for that

Certainly been a very different experience to Daytona so far, and I'm not even in the country yet all attempts at contacting Sebring's 'customer service' were ignored, I presume they just don't care for non-US visitors because they probably don't get many.

It'll be hot ish, rain or be Armageddon at least once and something will be on fire....nail it.

We'll be in Green Park somewhere, probably towards the hairpin. Maybe Friday evening will be good for a meet up.

We'll be getting there in the wee hours of Thursday, hopefully before they open the track...

Next week this time I'll be thrashing things together....hopefully, the flu will be gone by then

In case anyone wants to know, under the tree I circled on the map is where we camp every year. Our site will be surrounded by different armed forces flags. Stop by and drink one or more beers with us.




look for these flags:

I've only heard of Steve McQueen, drink specials, champions, biggest guns, prime rib and bikinis from that lineup....

Forecast is going towards a bit cooler (70s most of the days) and drier weather.

It might be cooler next week over there than here at home right now!
