The countdown to the 61st Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring Fueled by Fresh from Florida is less than 70 days, but the start of the 2013 American Le Mans Series presented by Tequila Patrón is much sooner than that.

The test sessions take place a little more than a month from the start of the 15th season of the American Le Mans Series. The test is open to the public, and tickets are $10. No overnight camping is permitted.
The new ALMS season goes green with the 61st Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring on Saturday, March 16. The race will air live on SPEED, and ticket information is available at sebringraceway.com. ALMS.com will feature Live Timing and Scoring. For more information, visit sebringraceway.com
