Porsche Sweeps GTLM, GTD Testing At Sebring
The No. 5 Corvette DP from Action Express Racing continues to build momentum in the early stages of the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship, as Sébastien Bourdais drove the Rolex 24 At Daytona-winning machine to the top of the time chart on Friday for the second consecutive day at the Sebring International Raceway winter test.
In 2012 Starworks Motorsport entered the history books by becoming the first LMP2 Champions in the FIA World Endurance Championship
Allan McNish, Alex Popow, Ryan Dalziel and Sébastien Bourdais will pilot the #8 Starworks Motorsport Riley-Ford Daytona Prototype at the 51st Grand-Am Rolex 24 at Daytona International Speedway on 26-27 January 2013.
More than 25 drivers with formula one experience will be on the grid at this weekend’s 80th running of the fabled 24 hour Le Mans race.
Near the front, in the premier LMP1 prototype class, will be Allan McNish and Marc Gene, driving for Audi. Scot McNish raced in F1 with Toyota in 2002, while Gene drove for Minardi and is still a Ferrari test driver. Toyota has since left F1 and for 2012 has entered Le Mans, and the Japanese marque’s number 8 entry is a grand prix-superteam featuring Anthony Davidson (Super Aguri), Sebastien Buemi (Toro Rosso) and one-off 1999 Minardi driver Stephane Sarrazin.
Ranking the Top 10 Indy drivers for 2011? Piece of cake. Just copy the final point standings, right? Hell no
Hell no, you have to look at the complete body of work, practice, qualifying, race day and those intangibles like bad pit calls, racing luck and brain fade. So here’s one opinion in a world of experts, starting from 10th and working down.
Sebastian Vettel’s first regular teammate is predicting an era of dominance for the new back to back world champion.
Second straight pole position for Peugeot’s British ace
Seeking a third straight victory at Road Atlanta, Team Peugeot Total is on pole position again for the 14th annual Petit Le Mans powered by Mazda. Anthony Davidson set a blistering 1:07.428 (135.611 mph) lap in qualifying Friday in the diesel-powered Peugeot 908 coupe that he will drive in Saturday’s 1,000-mile/10-hour race with Sébastien Bourdais and Simon Pagenaud.
In Intercontinental Le Mans Cup 1000km of Zhuhai
Team Peugeot Total produced a blend of panache and suspense to round off the 908 HDi FAP’s career with a resounding victory in Sunday’s 1000km of Zhuhai (southeast China). After monopolising the front row of the grid at the start, the two cars succeeded in dominating the early part of the race before coming under pressure themselves.
Jaime Alguersuari is happy with the performance of his formula one employer.
Toro Rosso is just eighth in the 2010 world championship with 8 points, ahead only of Sauber and F1′s three new teams. But rookie Alguersuari, who made his debut at short notice to replace the struggling Sebastien Bourdais mid last year, insists the Faenza based outfit is the “best team of people”.
”We couldn’t have done better” – Quesnel
For the fourth time in as many years a Peugeot 908 HDi FAP takes pole for tomorrow’s 78th 24 Heures du Mans, with the team’s three cars occupying the first three places just ahead of Team Oreca’s Peugeot in fourth. Changeable weather on the second day of qualifying prevented a new battle for the top spot but allowed Team Peugeot Total to concentrate on perfecting their set up in preparation for Saturday’s 15h00 start.
