Radio Le Man’s 100MPH tour to the 12 Hours of Sebring
Hindy’s 100mph Tours at the 12 Hours of Sebring
18th – 22nd March 2015
Join Hindy in Florida in 2014 for the 62nd running of the 12 Hours of Sebring. For many year’s John has been the voice of the ALMS at Sebring but now you can have him to yourself as part of this exclusive tour. Not only will John be able to keep you up to date on the action happening on circuit, but he will give you access to garages along the paddock and introduce you to drivers along the way. Participant numbers on this tour will be strictly limited to give all guests the best access whilst at the circuit, so book now to avoid missing out on this fantastic opportunity.
Graham Goodwin tells us why Sebring is so special: “In March each year thousands of race fans descend on the historic town of Sebring in Florida for the annual 12 hours race – and it’s a race like no other on the global calendar – run on a dedicated circuit originally forged from the runways and taxiways a WWII Bomber training base it’s regarded by many as the most gruelling of the endurance classics, more so indeed than the 24 Hour races that run for twice as long.”
“Sound, speed and fury is what its all about at Sebring – the wide open spaces and a mix of super fast and trickily slow corners mean that there is going to be fireworks right from the off – The barnstorming run into Sebring’s daunting blind Turn One is one where watchers and drivers hold their breath and see what comes out the other side.”
