For ten hours in Georgia, the greatest GT and prototype race cars in the US battled for the final win of the American Le Mans Series season. It was the Petit Le Mans and as you can see, it was utterly fantastic.
Yesterday, Green Hornet Racing Porsche driver Peter LeSaffre bashed Gunnar Jeanette in the unique DeltaWing off the track and into the air. Moments after the crash, LeSaffre driver flipped Jeanette the bird. Well played.
The ALMS season may have ended with Petit LeMans at Road Atlanta last month, but Porsche GTC team TRG produced a fitting video epilogue, including some outstanding cinematic flourishes. Put this one on HD, hit "full screen" and enjoy.
Corvette Racing's Tommy Milner slapped a camera* on his helmet for a night practice in advance of last weekend's 2011 Petit Le Mans race. This is how little you can see behind the wheel of a GT car while driving around a road circuit. Try not to scream when the Aston Martin goes flying by.
After a long, winless year in American Le Mans GT2, Corvette Racing was resigned to second place at Petit Le Mans. Until Ferrari broke down in the final lap. Wait for the sound of joy at about three minutes in.
