Sebring Winners 1952 - Present

The 12 Hours of Sebring is part of the 'Triple Crown of Endurance Racing' and this converted WWII airbase in central Florida has been the scene of some of the world's fastest race cars and the best drivers for over sixty years now. The track started out as a 5.2 mile circuit over the old runways and access roads of Hendricks Field, a B-17 training facility that was first recognized for its race circuit potential by Alec Ulmann. In the early years, old hulks of surplus aircraft and hangers were landmarks on the circuit. Over the years the course has been a round of the FIA Sports Car World Manufacturers Championship, the IMSA series and in current times, the American Le Mans Series. Revised to its current 3.74 mile configuration of today, Sebring is a tough race on both competitor and machine and victory at Sebring is a significant achievement!

PLEASE NOTE: From 1968 into the 1990's tobacco companies sponsored many significant race cars. In the interest of historical accuracy, Old Irish Racing chooses to display models in our collection as historically accurate as possible. While seeing a tobacco advert on a car gives me no more desire to go smoke than seeing a car makes me want to go suck on its exhaust pipe. If tobacco (or alcohol) adverts on race cars offend you, please go look at nice pictures of bunnies and kittens on another site.
