ALMS Test Days At Sebring
With goings on at Bahrain taking some of our attention at the moment, you might already know that the ALMS has initiated its own version of Spring Training – at Sebring International Raceway, Jan. 31-Feb. 3.

"This test has been organized in our continuing efforts to make participation in the ALMS more affordable," said Tim Mayer, Chief Operating Officer of IMSA. "The testing fees are discounted highly from Sebring's normal winter testing rates and provide teams the perfect opportunity to test and prepare for the upcoming season.

"We've had many inquiries from teams and expect a turnout from across all four classes of competition. This is even an opportunity for European teams to accomplish significant testing at one of the most storied tracks in sports car racing.

"We considered coming up with a catchy name for this test, but in the end pragmatism won out," continued Mayer. "This is all about providing a practical and cost-effective testing option for our teams.""The Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring continues to grow each year and having this series-wide testing session six weeks before race time is a sign of that growth,” said Tres Stephenson, President and General Manager of Sebring International Raceway. “The test will be beneficial to everyone involved."

Sebring’s 53rd running of the 12 Hours is showing all the signs of being one of the best ever.

The 3.7-mile circuit will be open for testing from 08.00 to 17.00 on all four days, with a scheduled one-hour lunch break daily at 12 noon. Teams will be admitted into the paddock area on January 30.

The timing should fit in well with any drivers wishing to be involved at Daytona towards the end of that week: they would be required to miss the end of the test days to be at Daytona Speedway for the first day of qualifying for the Rolex 24.
