Located on the site of a former army airfield in central Florida, Sebring is one of the most popular circuits in North America.
Racing at Sebring began in 1950; the first 12 Hours of Sebring was held in 1952. The circuit hosted the United States Grand Prix just once, in 1959. Bruce McLaren won the race in a Cooper-Climax.
