Petit Le Mans // Americans Le Mans Series 2012

Published by Pat W

Petit Le Mans only began in 1998 and is already established as one of the world's great races. The picturesque yet narrow Road Atlanta track provides the perfect setting whilst remaining a challenge for all. No longer a round of the ILMC/WEC, so there's no Audi or Toyota, it isn't a US-only affair. The WEC team Rebellion Racing are taking the opportunity to bring an LMP1 car to race for the overall win against the ALMS regulars. As well as a full ALMS grid we'll also see some ELMS teams from Europe competing in LMP2. In drivers, Dario and Marino Franchitti team up, Martin Brundle's son Alex is here, so is Brendon Hartley. And what's more - the Delta Wing will be making its 2nd race appearance. The race lasts for 1000 miles or 10 hours, 42 cars on a short twisty track, this race practically guarantees drama every season. With no Audi/Toyota whitewash and an unreliable LMP1 field the race is completely open. You'd be mad to miss it.
