Sebring is one of those tracks you need to race at least once a year. For us northerners in Ohio, racing in Florida in January is an awesome way to "speed" up winter. Sunny and 85° with a fast track and, this year, no rain.

PBOC club is mainly Porsche cars but with my M3 IP car (3.0) we were able to hold our own, especially in the turns. It was also my first experience running with the Roadsters. Those guys do take a little different way around the track. Following them for a couple of laps definitely was helpful on where to setup for a pass.

Starts are always a blast and especially so on this track. There you are three to four wide going into Turn 1. You'll be flat out going through 6 Big Bend all the way to the Hairpin. A lot of spins happened there. Yes, me too! Someone left some oil as I entered the Hairpin (that's my story and I'm sticking with it).

Anyone who has been to Sebring has to love 14, Bishop—a flat-out left-hander—set the wheel and hold. You're set up for the 5-mile straightaway by Turn 16.
Well, it's not really 5 miles, but you do have time to get ready for my favorite turn, 17, Sunset Bend—big right-hand sweeper, really fast—that brings you back to the front straight away.
People have complained about how bumpy this track is.
By my video, it is, but I didn't get motion sickness, so I guess it's okay. You need to use those bumps to your advantage for getting around the track faster, similar to the way around the Nelson Ledges track.
