Metal fuel drums or other fuel containers and caddies with manual pumps (no electric pumps) and hose lines are allowed to re-fill plastic jugs but are not allowed for re-fueling race cars. All fuel storage must be maintained on the “cold” side of the pit wall or kept within your transporter.

 SRPP4 – All teams shall have one (1) fully-charged 10LB ABC fire extinguisher in their pit area.All teams shall have one (1) 10LB bag of kitty litter or other reasonable absorbent for oil leaks and/or fuel spillage in their pit area. Having a broom handy is also be advisable.

 SRPP7 – All team members over the wall during fueling must wear a Nomex driver’s suit, gloves and full-face helmet.

 SRPP8 – Electric, propane or kerosene heaters within the “cold” side of the pit wall are allowed provided all heating elements or flame sources are directed away from any flammable material and are kept a minimum of 20’ from any fuel storage. No open flame stoves or BBQs are allowed in the cold pits.

 SRPP9 – All cars, used or junk parts too big for a normal trash can, empty fuel drums and anything else you brought with you must be taken out with you. If you leave it behind, we’ll track you down… and it won’t be pretty.


Lighting: The pit lane has very limited lighting and minimal pit/paddock area lighting. Be advised that ambient lighting may not be sufficient for fueling or mechanical repairs. Therefore, teams are advised to consider alternate power and lighting sources. The use of EZ-ups on the “cold” side of the pit wall are also recommended for keeping out weather and hanging all lighting fixtures.

    Hopefully this gas ends up being for Sebring and not the generator...

    LOL, lightweight, is that all you are hording?

    Yesterday I compiled the best non chump cans I have, filled 55gal with super 93 in vague hope it will start our Sebring race stash, if Irma comes near the genny is getting the good stuff!

    75+ gal more in tattered cans kicking around just waiting to be filled with super low test 87 if things go bad ...15k 30hp whole house power unit is thirsty<_<


    At least this is keeping me occupied and focused away from the other family things going on....

    I figured it was a start, we have a touch more breathing room up here than you guys, it's going to be an interesting 72 hours... my friend works for Broward water mgmt, he can't leave even if he wants to :blink:


    The reactions between Hurricane Matthew and now are interesting to watch - people went from zero poops given to 200mph with this one... already gas stations up by us running out of gas between deliveries.

    Hell, I am worried about extensive facilities/hotel damage at the track too!


    The track is helping the airport currently.   They'll probably loose some signage etc...    Hotel could be in some trouble.   Who knows how well they stay on top of the upkeep on it.   We're about to find out as they will be seeing sustained 100+ mph winds at the track.

    No gas available in Sebring currently. No sure it will be different in 10 days. Any word on whether this race will be held? Hotels survive?

    As a lifetime fl resident I can confidently say, they will have gas soon.


    As I type: the news is showing fuel trucks running with florida highway patrol escort.

    It doesn't feel very warm and fuzzy to be worried about racing when people are without homes, or at least power for days/weeks/months. UGGGH

    Agree to a extent as some of those ppl may be employees @ the track, we are supporting them and the local economy. Fl is all about the tourists and most all of them have fled, normalcy will return , is welcomed and in this case, a race @ Sebring is normal.

    I just posted this in the Irma thread, but I want all the teams from outside Florida to read this:

    The only real problem here is the lack of power! Florida is NOT devastated! I'm really tired of the media trying to make everything sounds sensational! "Mobile homes are shredded like cans..." I'm sorry, but those people should have read the story of the 3 little pigs when they were kids! "Irma's death toll is climbing to 20..." I feel sorry for the victims, but let's look at the causes of death: 6 died "forgotten" in a nursing home, 2 were killed by a tree they were cutting, 1 by his chainsaw, 3 in a car wreck at an intersection with the lights down, another lost the control of his car aquaplaning, another was electrocuted by downed power lines..." Sad, but not due to to the strenght of Irma!

    In the Tampa area, most stores are already reopened, my kids schools were supposed to reopen tomorrow, but because of some lack of power they'll reopen on Monday. Teco announced that most of its customers will have power by the end of the weekend. I'm really confident life will be back to very close to normal next week...

    As long as the track at Sebring has power, WE CAN RACE!!!!

    Don't forget the 4 add'l casualties of people running flipping generators in their house. W.T.F. folks. Same thing happened during Matthew. 


    Anyways, this is the Sebring thread, lets race! If the hotel is structurally sound that is awesome news, the track is semi-remote but next to the airport and commercial property, so I'd like to think they'd have power in a week.

    Just want to point out...2 days ago it was "armageddon" in central Florida. Tonight we were at Disney Springs for dinner, all of the gas stations around here are open and things are about 95% back to normal. 

    In 10-days I'm sure Sebring will be fine.
