Sebring International Raceway is one of the most magical places in all of motorsports. It might be due to the challenge of the notoriously bumpy 3.74-mile, 17-turn circuit. Or maybe it’s because of the history that has transpired at the track. Perhaps though, that magic is the result of the sun setting just right in early evening each March during the grueling Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring. Most likely, it’s a combination of all three.
Sebring International Raceway always brings out the best in the performance industry. Per usual, Chevrolet and Chevrolet Performance were on-site during the recent Super Sebring weekend to showcase the latest and greatest from the Bowtie.
