Default 2009 12 Hours of Sebring

It's March 21 (saturday) 10am-10pm, in Sebring, FL, obviously. Festivities go on from March 18th til the 21st. Who's going? who wants to go? who needs a ride? etc etc. if going, have any plans/ambitions to get a subaru meet going? Post any inquiries here and hopefully a small subaru community will be in attendance.

There are tickets for $70 that give paddock and general admittance access from friday @ 8pm through sat. Camping (tent) is free, RV parking is extra. Parking inside the track is extra.

I will be attending and would like to meet up with some fellow Subaru enthusiasts if anyone would like to hang out. I'll be there fri the 20th @ 8pm through sat the 21st, with my GF and maybe some other friends. We will be tent camping. PM me on here if interested.

Info about the race and tickets can be found here:

http://www.sebringraceway.com/12hour.lasso

Last year all the cheaper tickets (less than $150 or so) sold out 2 weeks or more before the race, just a heads up.

The $70 super-saturday ticket is now $80

I'll be there as part of Team Weird Motorsports Fans ruling the outside of Turn 6. A member of our crew was The Mayor of the Infield back in 2003. The crew arives Tuesday evening and is part of the nuts that sleep outside the track and are part of the first ones in Wednesday morning. My father and I will be ariving either late Wednesday night or around lunch on Thurs.

As we always put it, "Lets get together for a party and maybe a race will happen."

I won't be in the scoob though as we're towing an RV.

I hope to make the long drive from IA.

If I come, I'll probably be rolling the OBS and tent camping.

Keep the thread going!

I thought they were going to closed top cars? That is a sweet picture in any case.

What's the date of the race again?

Here's a pic of the Dyson/Mazda entry in LMP2:



It's awesome to see manufacturers like Audi, Acura, Peugeot, Mazda, etc. still actively involved in racing in this economy!!!

That Audi looks so nice. Can't wait to see the BMW GT2 car, too. I'll take lots of pics, hopefully.

Not true, I bought my ticket at the gate Saturday morning. Sebring is huge, I would be surprised if they sold out at all any year, and especially surprised considering the economy this year. I've been every year since 2005.

I'll be there, but probably will not take my STi, in my gray SVT Lightning instead.

The 50th anniversary race had 270,000 people. I was one of them.

That's what the salesperson on the phone told me. maybe she was talking about a different ticket or we misunderstood.

Thanks. Looking forward to this race on March 21st!!! Here's hooping Speed Channel will have extensive live coverage...and not have gaps in coverage to play old Nascar vids.

+1 On what wvallwheeldrive said. The pic I posted was an old one from winter testing. The new livery looks alright, but the car definitely looked better in black.
