Camp USA Roadtrip: Sebring International Speedway, Sebring FL

As the oldest track in the US, Sebring International Speedway is a piece of race history. 1952 marked the first 12 Hour Race, which the speedway is most known for. So many fans have walked through the gates of Sebring to be a part of the experience and walk among the track which screen legends like Steven McQueen have raced.

March 16th will mark the 64th Annual 12 Hour Race and will without a doubt be one of the highlights of the race year, but that isn’t all that the Sebring International Speedway has to offer.

Hall of Fame & Gallery of Legends

In 2002 during the 50th year of the 12 Hours of Sebring, The Hall of Fame was launched and each year since inductees enter the hall of fame alongside former members like Carroll Shelby, Mario Andretti and Rodger Penske, just to name a few. A few years after the Hall of Fame was formed the Gallery of Legends found its’s place at Sebring. There you can walk among legends and view cars from past 12 Hour Races. It is a chance for super fans to get up close and personal with the real vehicles that have made history.

Trail of History

Sebring International Speedway is located on what used to be Hendricks Field, a WWII airbase training center. Throughout the track you can see pieces of our history including original flagpoles, runways and the Hendricks control tower. One of the greatest things about this historical track is that various areas are unchanged and have the same concrete and straights used on the runways in the 1940’s and the first 12 Hour Sebring Race in 1952.

Paddock Area

As race enthusiasts we are always looking for ways to be a part of the action or at least as close to it as possible, and Sebring is the place to be for that fan experience. Your Sebring ticket allows full access to the Paddock areas where the teams are getting prepped and ready for the 12 hour event. There you can take photos, ask questions and get a closer look at the inner workings and preparation needed to endure a race of this magnitude, all for the price of a general admission ticket.

RV Camping at Sebring International Speedway

Like most race fans camping your RV rental is the best way to enjoy the festivities and stay close to the action while enjoying the perks standard camping doesn’t offer. Trackside spaces are available around the race circuit, however keep in mind that they do sell-out, so the earlier you purchase them the better. If reserved parking is no longer available there is non-reserved motorhome parking at a first-come first-serve basis.

A few things to keep in mind about RV camping at Sebring is that there are no hookups for motorhomes, but showers are available for use and charcoal or gas grills are both fine to bring along for the ultimate tailgating experience. So, whether you are relaxing outside your RV before the 12 Hour Sebring Race or checking out the various car clubs gathered around the speedway, there is plenty to do, plenty to see and history to take part in.

Camp USA has RV rentals for any budget and family size, so get in touch and let us know how we can help make your Sebring experience one for the books!
