Legends of Motorsports at Sebring December 3-5, 2010

Legends of Motorsports, A Bobby Rahal Signature Event
2010 finale at Sebring International Raceway in Sebring, Fla., December 3 - 5.

To celebrate the conclusion of its inaugural season, the historic racing series has added two new categories to the run groups for Sebring: Sports 2000 and American Thunder. Popular in the 1970's and 80's as a highly competitive, restricted-rules racing class, S2000 features rear-drive, open-cockpit, two-seater sports prototypes, manufactured by the likes of Lola, Swift, Royale, Van Dieman, Tiga and Shrike among others. American Thunder pays tribute to the roots of NASCAR, welcoming historic stock cars, as well as tube-frame Trans-Am, GT and GT-1 cars.

Additional car categories selected to run at Sebring include GTP/Group C/World Sports Cars, 2-Liter Sports Cars, Trans-Am/Thunder and Lightning, Classic Monoposto, IMSA GT/FIA GT, Can-Am/USRRC, FIA Championship of Makes and Formula Libre.

In addition to three days worth of on-track activity, spectators will be able to enjoy a variety of entertainment for the whole family, from live music to classic racing films. With the rest of the auto racing world in hibernation by December, the Legends of Motorsports weekend at Sebring is the perfect opportunity for race fans to get one more fix before the new year.
