The International Motor Sports Association (IMSA) WeatherTech SportsCar Championship will compete in the 67th Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring Presented by Advance Auto Parts on Saturday, March 16th. That race will be preceded on Friday, March 15th, by the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) 1000 Miles of Sebring.
The doubleheader endurance race weekend brings together the world’s two leading sports car racing championships at North America’s oldest and most historic road racing facility. The famed Sebring circuit originated from a WWII B-17 combat crew training base known as Hendricks Field.
Sebring is the second round of the 2019 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship and one of the four prestigious endurance races that make up the Michelin Endurance Cup. IMSA is celebrating its 50th Anniversary in 2019.
The FIA WEC race is round six of its “Super Season” that culminates with the running of the 24 Hours of Le Mans in June.
