Is that because you can get the international TV feed for free there?

There are several on the midway that are open until very late and again re-open pretty early (just not sure if they're open 24 hours or not). There are also quite a few in the paddock. They're definitely edible, just not particularly healthy.

Why not grab an inexpensive cooler somewhere and hit up the grocery store? I tend to head to the store every morning (except for Saturday) and stock up on ice, extra beverages and food that is forgotten. Little tip for you, if you leave (getting out is no problem, just be sure to get a pass-out), when coming back don't go in through the main entrance where the big line is (it can take a really long time), go through the entrance just before that towards will call, there's a side entrance where they'll check your tickets and wave your car right in, never any line.

That's on the pre-Petit agenda here, think Morgan is planning around Labor Day for Italy but I'm leaving that to her. I'm just trying to get the trip from Florence to Ferrari included in the trip, if I'm that close I might as well.

Sadly I think it cuts out another race trip worth it for Historics cars at Road America and the Shadowfest this summer.

Nice! Minus missing shadows!

Correct! That may end up being cheaper than actually paying for streaming services!

I'm going again this year, after enjoying my first trip in 2019.

I have to be back in the UK for Monday morning, which means catching a 1925 flight from Orlando on Saturday night, so I'll only see the first 4 hours of the 12 Hour. I will, however, be there from first thing Thursday so I'll get to see most of the practice sessions and the support races.

I found food options were great, though expensive. Toilets are terrible. Signage is almost non-existent. I kept looking for the famous raucous party zones but I just saw lots of blokes having a fun time. I slept in the car right by the legendary flagpole - lovely and quiet! Viewing is excellent. Photo angles are many, apart from at T17 which seemed to be all sponsor areas.

2019 was hot, humid and wet. Not that much fun weather wise. I'm hoping for weather more like Daytona this weekend.

Sebring still won't post tickets outside the USA, which is a bit...20th century. Will Call is literally someone going through a pile of envelopes to find the one with your name on it. Everyone is very helpful and friendly.

It's a great event, unlike anything else I've been to. The griminess and rough edges are part of what makes it fun. There's no track like it, no event like it.

You're welcome to meet up with our crew on Thursday or Friday night if you want to experience the party situation. We've got a group of about 25 and we tend to hit all the known spots. If you're only there for that short period you need to make the most of it!

Thatís very kind, thank you. Iím just there to take photos though - that doesnít mix well with beer!

My comment was less an expression of regret at not finding a party, more of a reassurance to newbies that this is a perfectly easy-going event, not the wild Spring Break carnage you might expect from reading the more excitable reviews.
