Coverage of the 63rd running of the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring opens on FOX Sports 1 on Saturday, March 21 (10:30 AM ET) with veteran broadcaster Bob Varsha leading a team of six FOX Sports voices bringing viewers the second round of both the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship and the four-race Patron Endurance Cup.
And Sebring International Raceway, a former training ground for B-17 Flying Fortress pilots and one of the oldest continuously run speedways in the country, has a personality all its own. The 3.74-mile, 17-turn course of concrete and asphalt challenges even the most seasoned of drivers.
"To me, the thing that separates Sebring from other great endurance events, including Le Mans, Daytona, Nurburgring, Spa-Francorchamps, Monza, Silverstone and so on, is the sheer authenticity of the place," Varsha said. "Convenient? No way. Creature comforts? Hell, no. But when you walk the concrete slabs of the old airfield circuit, you're on the exact same concrete that was driven by the legends since day one, from Moss and Fangio, to Hill and Walters, to Andretti and Gurney, to Haywood and Redman, to McNish and Kristensen. The first words viewers will hear from me when we hit the air on Saturday are about how Sebring is a track like no other … anywhere."
Varsha teams with Calvin Fish and Justin Bell in the booth, with Brian Till, Jamie Howe and Andrew Marriott reporting from the pits.
