Sports car fans worldwide will have multiple live coverage options during the 62nd Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring Fueled by Fresh From Florida. The race – which is the second round of both the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship and the Tequila Patrón North American Endurance Cup – will take the green flag at 10:15 a.m. ET on Saturday, March 15.

***Live streaming of the full 12-hour FOX Sports telecast will be available to fans in Europe, Asia and Africa on IMSA.com and in the United States through the FOX Sports Go mobile app beginning at 10 a.m. ET. Live streaming for North America, South America and Australia begins at 1 p.m. ET, immediately following FOX Sports 1’s live telecast from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. ET.

The IMSA.com live stream will utilize the same FOX Sports commentators as the FOX Sports 1 telecast. IMSA.com also will offer live streaming of up to 12 in-car cameras throughout the entire event for fans everywhere. In addition to the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring coverage, IMSA.com will have a live stream of the entire IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge race on Friday, March 14. The two-and-a-half hour race begins at 1 p.m. ET.

***Prior to the start of the race, IMSA.com will whet fans’ appetites with two pre-race shows.

“Through the Driver’s Eyes, Driven by Continental Tire,” which premiered March 5 on FOX Sports 1, will be streamed on IMSA.com beginning at 8:30 a.m. ET on Saturday, March 15. The 45-minute program is narrated by former Indianapolis 500 champion Dario Franchitti and provides a unique, behind-the-scenes look at many top IMSA drivers and teams.

At 9:30 a.m. ET, IMSA.com will offer a live pre-race show from the Sebring grid hosted by popular commentator Justin Bell. The 30-minute stream will feature driver interviews and pre-race activities as teams make their final preparations for the grueling 12-hour battle on the legendary Sebring International Raceway circuit.

****Visitors to IMSA.com throughout the Sebring race week can access all event resources through the prominent “Race Central” feature from the front page.

Race Central will be a one-stop shop for access to all live video and MRN Radio broadcasts and in-car camera streams. It also provides links to full live timing and scoring data, results from every on-track session, live pit notes from the @IMSALive Twitter stream, up-to-date entry lists, fan viewing guides and more.

    The Fox Sports go mobile app doesn’t exist on Android. I’m glad anyone without an idevice is a second class citizen. So basically what Imsa is saying is, if you live INSIDE the U.S. and don’t have an iDevice then have fun watching the first 3hr and looking for updates from other avenues.

    BRILLIANT!

      I’m not upset about this because I don’t care anymore…
      Looking forward to PWC and to the start of the WTCC with the new gen of extreme touring cars.

        Me too, I think I’ll go to Barber in April to take in the PWC race.

      Delay after delay on the Android front.

      I’m more concerned that not every provider can access it, even on their website. Got FiOS like me? You’re SOL on watching streaming.

      @RideRed, it’ll be on imsa.com the website. You can also watch through the fox sports app if you have the proper device and choose to do so but its not required inside the US. Thinking that IMSA owns Fox and has anything to do with what their app is carried on though is asinine. Reading is fundamental before having a mental breakdown and complaining about it.

      Who needs qualifying when you’re getting a 45 minute “behind the scenes” fluff piece?

      Is there any other racing series in the world that doesn’t broadcast qualifying in some format?

    Got my iPad – check
    Got my Fox app downloaded – check
    Can’t use my app – DirectTV hasn’t got an agreement with Fox for this app.

    I’m screwed. Thanks nascar, just pay the money and put it on live TV!

    I am not trying to pick a fight, but why is the live streaming through IMSA.com so awful? I live in Sebring, and attend the 12-h every year with some friends. Last year, we took an AC/ lunch break at Beef ‘O Brady’s in town and hoped to watch some of the mid portion of the race while we ate…only SPEED showed NASCAR truck qualifying or something silly like that (maybe PINKS or “chop, cut, rebuild,” who knows…NOT ALMS…). This year, I can go home (15 mins from the track) for my lunch/ AC break, and stream the middle portion of the race from the iPad to the TV (which my wife and i use only to watch movies; no cable/ satellite, etc.).
    Also, seeing how everyone dislikes Fox sports 2, it seems that a good portion of the rest of the races (all???) are live or tape delay (in their entirety!!!) on FS1, except for PLM (maybe something will change???). Just bummed out that everyone else is so bummed out about the new series and it’s “teething” issues…As “they” say, “Rome wasn’t built in a day.”
