Legends of Motorsports Powered by HMSA will celebrate the 50th anniversary of Phil Hill's Formula 1 World Championship during the final historic racing event of the season at Sebring, Dec. 2-3.
1961 was a truly remarkable year for Hill. He remains the only driver to win the F1 World Championship, the 24 Hours of Le Mans and the 12 Hours of Sebring in a single season. After clinching the championship at Monza, the Ferrari team decided not to compete in the U.S. Grand Prix at Watkins Glen, denying Hill the chance to celebrate in his home country. Now 50 years later, family, friends and fans of the American racing legend, who passed away in 2008, will be on hand honor one of the greatest drivers in the history of the sport.
Aspecial historic timeline exhibit will showcase Hill's accomplishments in his championship season. A numbered limited edition art print commemorating Hill's championship will be given to all participants, as well as to the first 200 spectators who purchase a two-day ticket.
Historic racecars from all eras will be on display in the open paddock and raced on track, where these extraordinary machines can be seen and heard in their full glory. Attending a Legends event is equivalent to walking into a museum that suddenly comes to life before your eyes.

GTP/GROUP C/WSC (Classic to 1993 and Contemporary 1994‐2005)
2 Liter Sports Cars
Trans‐Am/Thunder and Lightning
