Sebring 2019

Anyone else counting the days???

I'm super excited about our campsite this year, have first timers coming from England, Holland, Romania, and Australia. The whole world knows what a big deal Sebring will be next year and I can't wait to show the track to these guys for the first time. Think they're going to be pretty stoked on the access we have at Sebring as over in Europe they don't have nearly the access that we do.

We also have cute little backpacks for our first timers to wear. They'll be hauling around our drinks and snacks. Look for the following backpacks:

Lance (rookie) is stoked to wear his backpack.
I'm ready, even made a countdown

Looking forward to my third Sebring in as many years. Some new challenges with WEC squeezed in- the timetable is absolute madness- but I'm looking forward to seeing how it pans out!

Totally missed this thread. I had plans on going. Need to rally some troops (and myself) and see what's what....

I've never sat in the terrace in the 5 or 6 trips I've taken but I wonder how much you could see from up there. it might be worth it! Certainly could see the main straight and T1 well but me personally; I would rather be down with the "groundlings" in Green Park.

For me, paying the extra $ to have any sort of reserved seating is not worth it.
IMHO you're not doing it right if you're not walking around all weekend. There is so much to see.
How old is your son? Also, do you plan on camping all weekend?

He's 14. We will be stopping about an hour away, as part of a family holiday to Orlando / WDW. We've got a rental car so would plan on going back and to each day.

I think I've heard enough to persuade me to not part with the extra $ for the Gurney terrace

The Mouse and Sebring! I've debated taking my kids and wife and just dumping them off in Orlando and heading South as it's their spring break. they don't like even going to Road Atlanta with me (its 40 mins away from us).

Just know that traffic in and out of the circuit each day is going to likely be daunting (I wouldn't really know as I camp at the circuit when I go) and Orlando, depending on where you're staying is at least an hour and 45 away. That's a lot of driving but is worth doing both trips, if your time allows.

Yep, that's the plan for Wife and daughter, thankfully Son likes his endurance racing

Road Atlanta, went there once the year it was rained off after 5 hours, but it was still epic!

We're on the SW side of Orlando, kind of abeam Kissimmee. The mouse had better be damn good for the cost of it!

Feel free to stop by our site while roaming the track. We'll cook up some food for you and your son. Obviously, there is never a shortage of adult beverages either.
Once we get the site operational on Wednesday morning, I'll post some pix of it so you can find us. We have some easy to recognize decorations.
This is where we are every year:

You should consider sleeping in your rental car on Fri night with the WEC race not ending until midnight and the 12H proceedings starting early on Sat. morning.

Scotty - thank you very much, that's really kind of you. We'll definitely aim to pop by, assuming we can find our way round - I am guessing you are in the middle of what is called Green Park?

CoachEp - that's good advice. I've not actually seen a timetable yet, but will definitely consider the sleepover in the car idea.

Cant wait now

Had every intention to be there this year but an important wedding in Belgium will keep me away. With the St Pete Indy this would be an awesome Florida couple of weeks. Maybe next year but this year the Spa 6 Hours will have to do.

Heading out for our fourth visit - 2000, 2006, 2013.

From previous experience, this time will be bringing a small step to be able to shoot photos over the fence.

Will be looking back at my 2013 photos and will post some on Flickr in the next few days.
