Toyota romping away with it as usual but enjoying the other classes!

Such a tough, bumpy track.

Is the track/tarmac really down in segments it’ looks really tired/in need of some fresh asphalt

The poor surface is the whole point of Sebring!

Ah... I’ve only ever watched Spa Le Mans and Silverstone enduro races.

How long is the race? It doesn’t look like a 6 hour race is it 12 hour or longer?

Watching on Eurosport, first on my planner. Didn't realise it was on BT. Better comms by far.

I recognise the voice of the commentators they sound identical to the Le Mans commentary.

Who is BT offering?

Not a clue. But they aren't droning and clueless.

ETA..

McNish and someone who knows his stuff.

The ‘Nish for one. He kinda knows about this stuff....

Pretty sure one of the others is Graham Goodwin.


Edit: just checks and it is. Martin Haven being the other chap.

Or alternatively turn the sound down and listen to RLM with John H et al for the full experience.

It's an old bomber airfield, I believe. Awful surface, but as said, its pretty much the point. These cars don't like impact and vibration from the road, so Sebring is considered a very attritional circuit. A good test bed.

What a great weekends racing, loved all of it. One wonders how many steps Mazda need to take to come back to Le Mans & the WEC. Was quite surprised to see Porsche & Ford both having factory entries in the 12 hr. The IMSA serious is well covered on this side of the pond, some great racing.

We plan a trip to Sebring in 2020, does anybody know if the WEC will be returning to Sebring in 2020 ?
