Sebring 2020!

Okay, time to start a dedicated thread for Sebring 2020. Super Sebring, WEC and IMSA 2.0

Last year I hosted several folks from outside the states, 2 Brits (one of them puked all over Sebring, sorry about that), 2 Dutch (they were very well behaved), 1 Aussie (he will be missed this year, his Australian jet fuel whiskey from hell will not), and 1 Romanian.

Fun was had by all. Really too much fun. Many new friends were made, and people became fans of Sebring for life.

The two Brits will be returning again this year (can you believe it's actually cheaper for them to fly to the US and camp at Sebring than camping at Le Mans???!!!), bringing another new Brit with them. Our Romanian friend is also returning. Like I said, they had such a good time they committed to coming again this year within weeks of last.

Also new to attend with my crew will be three of my cousins, one flying in from San Diego. Feel free to give this guy grief for the following. In 2015 I was going to Le Mans (my third time there). When he heard I was going to France he asked if he could tag along as he'd never been outside North America. This guy goes to Le Mans with me for a day of scrutineering. But then leaves the Wednesday of race week to chase skirt in Germany, because watching cars for 24 hours would be "boring". Well, he deserves a bunch of grief for that, but he's certainly not going to see boring at Sebring!

We'll be in our regular spot just by the restrooms on the inside of turn 7. For sure though we'll be making regular stops at Scotty P's site as well. This time we'll be sure to bring more beverages to share as I worry we drank much of their stash last year. I did mention my concern to the more coherent of our group and they reminded me (it was Sebring, don't expect me to remember this stuff) that we had brought stuff to share, David with a very tasty brandy (I think that's what it was), and William with the aforementioned nasty jet fuel. But anyhow, we'll step up our game this year.

Tickets arrived last week. Super pumped!

Who else is coming and excited???

Feel free to ask any questions here, you'll be sure to get an answer.

Ha ha. Loser was not successful in Germany. Better looking women in France anyway if you ask me, but I suppose pickings are slim during Le Mans.

Glad to hear youíre going. Have you been before?

Having thoroughly enjoyed Sebring in 2019, even with the rain, I'd highly recommend it. We won't be there this year as we are making our annual transatlantic trip in the summer to include IMSA at the Glen and the Climb to the Clouds at Mt Washington.

For spectator photographers, Sebring is one of the best - here's our guide so you can plan ahead - https://www.pistonclick.com/sebring-...tional-raceway

we'll be in the usual spot.
We rented an RV this year. Dude is going to drop it off Wed morning at come get it Sunday afternoon.

LOL. 'whiskey' I don't know how to explain what the stuff did to my brain. I'm pretty sure it actually was jet fuel.

Our group will need your help with the rookie that we'll have this year. He's a rugby player, so we need to haze him pretty hard. We sort of let Lance off easy last year.

I’m working out what we need to take. Just checked you could listen to the radio, for the inexperienced IMSA radio is on:

730 AM and Sirius 216, XM 201, Sirius XM Web Channel 972 and locally on 99.1 FM, 730 AM and 1050 AM.

What are the food outlets like? Are they open all the time and could you survive on them?

Pretty sure we could only pick up one of AM stations and it was horrid. None of the FMs come well, so I carry my scanner and go 454.000.

Think they are all up on the Midway and around the paddock. Never had any of them.

Working out what we take to cook things. Ideally would just cover breakfast and then buy stuff for ease.

I'd take all you could. Sandwiches for lunch or something.

I'm hoping to go and potentially rally some troops here. If that happens, we can probably help with parts of this, but plan for the worst.

And I have come to not trust track food anywhere...

Sadly I'm saving the pennies for a trip to Greece and Italy this summer. And yes I'd rather spend the money on Sebring but it isn't my decision. A wedding is involved for my wife's friend. We are also taking our oldest son for some reason.
