Thank you for volunteering your time for the 48 Hours of Sebring. 48 Hours has grown over the past 20 years to become one of the largest gatherings of Porsches in North America and is the kick-off for the 2017 Porsche Club Racing season. Your job, as a volunteer, is to work hard at the many task that come up during the race day, make friends, spend time marveling at the cars and above all to have a great time. Warning: 48 Hours is addictive!
The 2017 event dates are Thursday February 2nd – Sunday February 5, 2017. Sign the wavier at the guard house, and then enter the track and report to the volunteer table inside the Gallery of Legends building for assignment.
Go to the 48 Hours or Sebring International Raceway websites for a track map. If you are volunteering for the morning please report to the volunteer tent by 7:15 AM and for the afternoon session by 11:45 AM. We asked that you remain flexible relative to your assignment. Many ‘jobs’ come up on the spur of the moment and you may be assigned to a task other than the one you requested. Please park in the designated, paddock parking area and never block a trailer or race car…
Each volunteer will be provided with lunch and water as well as other volunteer gifts that will be available at the volunteer area. We recommend that you bring sun screen, folding chairs, and cooler with drinks if you are working the corners. The weather at Sebring can be very cold or very hot, check the forecast on the 48 Hours web site and come prepared. Long pants and closed shoes are required for most of the areas, especially corners, pits, and grid. We also request that you do not wear cloths that may be confused as a flag, yellow and red for example.
Volunteers are coming from all areas of the state of Florida and as far away as Wyoming and Europe so use your trusty computer for driving directions to the track. When all else fails call one of the volunteer coordinators and they will try to help you if you get lost.
