Nick Tandy won Le Mans earlier this year in a Porsche prototype, which makes sense because prototype cars win these races. Nick Tandy just won a rainy Petit Le Mans in a Porsche 911 GT car. That’s not supposed to happen. In fact, it’s the first time it’s ever happened.
The DeltaWing is a modern marvel, with its staggered track width and distinct appearance that makes it look like Ace and Gary's crime-fighting packagemobile. It's one of the most novel ideas in racing today, but what is it like to be onboard for a lap?
Road Atlanta is one of the more high-speed, old-school venues on the Tudor United SportsCar calendar and as such, when the track bites you, it bites hard. That and folks just couldn't quite figure out how to make a safe exit from pit lane. Attrition was the name of the game, so here are some of the larger incidents…
I mentioned yesterday that it had just started raining before the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge season finale and thus, the series' season ender was probably worth a watch. Rain races are always great, but HOLY CRAP! I didn't expect to see the world's most expensive Slip-N-Slide.
You heard me correctly: the entire length of the Petit Le Mans race from start to finish will be broadcasted live on IMSA.com starting at 11:00 AM Eastern Time. Time to do exactly nothing all day long.

Yesterday, the DeltaWing was flipped off the track by a Porsche during ALMS testing at Road Atlanta. Now we have the onboard video, and it's kind of hilarious.
The DeltaWing has crashed again, this time testing for the American Le Mans Series. This is a damn shame, and we'll explain why.
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.
Petit Le Mans got underway today with practice starting down at Road Atlanta. Photographer Eric Cartner was there to capture the cars getting ready for the upcoming race.
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.
The experimental Porsche 911 GT3 R Hybrid survived Petit Le Mans this weekend, finishing 18th and suffering more from bad tire choice than hybrid system complications. From this always-well-produced Porsche video, you'd almost think they won.
Petit Le Mans, the 10-hour endurance race at Road Atlanta, is this weekend. Peugeots, a Porsche hybrid, Panoz — If you've got a TV and you love cars, what the hell else would you watch on Saturday?
