I like both actually with Daytona signaling the start of the racing season after the long winter period and Sebring marking the start of the proper endurance racing season.
Daytona is great and I'd love to go there once but I really dislike the butt ugly DP cars
Sebring is just awesome, I've been twice and there's no better way to start your endurance year
So if I _have_ to choose it will be Sebring
I'd expect Daytona to be bigger domestically
and don't really care if they are in the same series now

I'm looking forward to the 12 Hours of Sebring more than the 24 Hours of Daytona primarily because of the cars involved (zero interest in the Daytona prototypes; I much prefer LMPs), but I will probably follow both races. It'll be awesome to see both races as part of the same series in 2014, but hopefully (very unlikely) not at the expense of the current P1 class in ALMS/WEC.
Mm, the chance of LMP1s competing at Sebring beyond 2013 is something like 0,0002% I give 95% for LMP2 though

Seeing that the 24hrs happens when no other racing is going on I vote for that.
These days when Sebring happens the season is already in full swing.
EDIT: taking out any chance of misinterpretation

but yeah, that is a valid opinion (as are all, there are no wrong opinions here)
