IMSA and the FIA World Endurance Championship will reunite in March for the second annual “Super Sebring” sports car event.
The inaugural weekend featured IMSA’s traditional 12 Hours of Sebring for WeatherTech SportsCar Championship entries, which followed the WEC’s 1000 miles of Sebring as the two series gave fans days of constant entertainment.
“The 2019 Super Sebring weekend exceeded expectations by every measure, and we look forward to working with the World Endurance Championship and Sebring Raceway staffs to enhance the experience in 2020 for everyone involved,” IMSA President Scott Atherton said.
WEC CEO Gérard Neveu commented: “The Sebring event this year was greatly enjoyed by competitors and fans alike, and it’s a real pleasure to come together again with our partners at IMSA and Sebring Raceway to put on an even better show for 2020”.
Wayne Estes, president of the storied road course circuit, declared the first event as the most successful in the modern era, which made bringing the endurance racing combo back little more than a formality.
“A tremendous amount of work by the Sebring team and all parties involved went into making the 2019 Super Sebring weekend a success, and our goal is to build on that and again surpass the milestones established this year,” Estes said.
