1000 Miles of Sebring returns on unveiled 2022 calendar

The 1000 Miles of Sebring returns after a two-year hiatus on the ACO’s unveiled 2022 calendar for the FIA WEC’s 10th season.

The Automobile Club l’Ouest (ACO) has unveiled the calendar for the FIA World Endurance Championship’s 10th season since its inaugural running in 2012.

A total of six rounds will be hosted across Europe, Asia, Middle East and North America.

The Prologue (12-13 March) and the opening round at Sebring Raceway returns after two years away since the 2018-19 Super-Season.

The COVID-19 pandemic proposed a challenge for the championship to race in 2020, as it did for this year initially being replaced by a Portimao opener, which was swapped with Spa-Francorchamps.

Following Sebring, the 6 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps will take its traditional spot on the calendar to precede the flagship 24 Hours of Le Mans, the latter taking place on 11-12 June.
