SRO America announced Monday that it will race at Sebring International Raceway on Oct. 1-3 in the first of a three-year commitment at the famed-Florida circuit.

As first revealed by Sportscar365 last month, the Sebring weekend replaces the originally scheduled event at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, which was to run as part of Victoria Day activities in May.

The Sebring weekend will include Fanatec GT World Challenge America powered by AWS, GT America powered by AWS, Pirelli GT4 America and TC America powered by Skip Barber series.

As part of a doubleheader weekend, an invitational non-points round for GT America powered by AWS will also be included, bringing GT sprint single-driver racing back to Sebring after a long hiatus.

SRO has not competed at Sebring since 2009 when it raced there under the Speed World Challenge moniker.

“We couldn’t think of a better venue to serve as a replacement round from our postponed trip to Canada,” said SRO America President and CEO Greg Gill. “We’re excited to be back in Florida and can’t wait to showcase our 100+ car paddock to sports car fans.”

“All of the SRO America championship series produce great races and large fields of amazing cars, and the historic Sebring circuit will be an ideal venue for the next three years,” said Sebring International Raceway President and general manager Wayne Estes.

“As we continue to add world-class sports car races to the Sebring schedule, we look forward to introducing Sebring’s fan base to what surely will be fierce competition.”
