Sebring Racing History

Sebring is one of the oldest continuously operating race circuits in the U.S., with its first race in 1950. The Sebring 12 Hour is one of the world’s most prestigious classic endurance races. The raceway occupies a portion of Sebring Regional Airport, an active airport for private and commercial traffic. Originally built as Hendricks Army Airfield, a World War II training base for the U.S. Army Air Forces, the airfield was a training base for B-17 pilots from 1941 to 1946. After the war, aeronautical engineer, Alec Ulmann, sought sites for converting military aircraft space to civilian use. Ulmann discovered potential in Hendricks’ runways to stage a sports car endurance race similar to the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
