One of Florida’s oldest running jokes is that the state bird of Florida is the “Early Bird,” a nod to the thousands of both coasts’ restaurants offering lower meal prices before 6 p.m.
To kick off the ticket-selling season for the 66th Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring, we are offering an Early Bird Special of our own: $80 four-day Supertickets. That’s a four-day Superticket, which sells for $105 at the gate, and $90 in advance (advance prices expire February 15, one month before the race week).
Early Birds will save $25 per ticket versus the gate price, and $10 versus the advance price.
The lowest prices for 2018 tickets will be in effect only a short time, so ticket buyers must act fast. This Early Bird Special expires at midnight, September 8th, and when it’s over these prices will not be available again for the 66th running of America’s original endurance sports car race.
In addition to the Cadillac prototypes of defending Mobil 1 Twelve Hours champion Wayne Taylor Racing and Action Express, and Road America’s winning ESM Team Patron Nissan, the new year will usher the IMSA returns of two of motorsports’ iconic teams: Team Penske and Team Joest.
Joest engineers masterminded the dominant Audis at Sebring and Le Mans, and now bring their expertise and experience to the Mazda prototype efforts.
Penske’s new Acura prototype promises to be a crowd favorite, and its drivers – including Juan Pablo Montoya and Dane Cameron – most certainly will attract Sebring fans to the Penske paddock compound.
And just as the LM P2 cars mounted such a strong challenge at Le Mans in 2017, expect an even greater challenge at Sebring. The “36 Hours of Florida” – a two-race promotion linking the results of the Rolex 24 and the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring – is expected to attract Europe’s greatest LM P2 teams, placing numerous teams into the mix for overall title at Sebring.
GTLM will be just as strong in 2018 as it was earlier this year when fans watched Corvette, Ford, BMW, Porsche and Ferrari battle over the rugged airfield circuit for 12 Hours.
Meanwhile, the Sebring Raceway staff continues to develop plans for other entertainment and attractions on the famous Sebring Midway, and with the Sebring Hall of Fame inducting a new class, everything is shaping up to make 2018 a very special event.
And at the lowest prices of the year, we urge you to take advantage of Florida’s Early Bird tradition.
