Sebring is justly famous for it International raceway, a legendary 3.7 mile circuit created from portions of Hendricks Field – previously a training center for pilots during World War II. The raceway is an integral part of Sebring, with close ties to the community. Thousands of local residents support the major 212-hours race by volunteering their labor – from parking cars to providing stand-by medical care. True to its historical background, the raceway created the Gallery of Legends, which is operated by The Hall of Fame committee. It is available for rent to organizations and individuals. The Chateau Elan Hotel, an independently operated 122 room hotel, is situated right by the track with rooms overlooking the infamous Hairpin Turn. The hotel has meeting facilities and a cosmopolitan restaurant.
Any visit to Sebring must include a visit to the world-class motorsports complex
