Two R10s Enter, One R10 Wins; Corvette, Lola, Panoz Round Out Sebring Class Victories

Two of the most hotly-anticipated prototype racers of the last um, uh, real long time made their full-series ALMS debuts at Sebring with mixed results. The pole-qualifying #2 Audi R10 of Tom Kristensen, Allan McNish and Rinaldo Capello took the race, while the #1 car, driven by Marco Werner, Frank Biela and Emanuele Pirro dropped out due to overheating. Meanwhile in LMP2, the hyper-fast Porsche RS Spyder that looked so promising in qualifying lost out to Clint Field, his father Jon Field and Liz Halliday in a Lola.

The #4 Corvette driven by Olivier Beretta, Oliver Gavin and Jan Magnussen took down the Pedro Lamy, Jason Bright and Stephane Sarrazin #009 DBR9 in GT1, while in GT2, the David Brabham, Scott Maxwell and Sebastien Bourdais Panoz Esperante held off a gaggle of Porsches to take the win.
