I'm going back to Sebring in March for the first time in years. I've now based in the US again, and I've managed to persuade at least two London-based LM mates to fly out for the long weekend. If any other PHers are interested, flights from Gatwick to Orlando are £305, and entry at Sebring is US$100 for the weekend.
Look out for our little tents amid the acres of RVs!

My wife and I will be there from Thursday. We are hiring an RV from Orlando and travelling down. We decided to make a proper trip of it so are doing a week exploring the coast and the Keys, ending up in the Tampa Bay area for the IndyCar at St Petersburg and a few days chilling near the beach. We can then potter over to Sebring for a couple of days of intense racing and partying.

We’ll keep an eye out for your tents. We camped at Bathurst in 2013 and it was very easy to spot the Brits with the £15 Tesco Value tent! Hope you guys have a brilliant weekend.

FL resident and Sebring old-hand here. If you haven't ordered tickets yet, do so now. The double-header this year, combined with some major construction at the track means there will be some displaced regulars this year.

The new drive-over bridge construction has taken a lot of real estate that was general camping in Green Park. Additionally There will be no overnight camping in the area between the Midway and Turn 6 - now allocated to single-day car parking. So all of those folks who historically have camped those spots will now be looking elsewhere around the facility.

Let me know if I can be of any assistance with local matters - and come see us at Turn 10.

Thanks for the info. We've only booked regular parking/camping tickets rather than a reserved spot, so I'll do my best to get there on Wednesday rather than Thursday to stake out a spot.
