2011 12 Hours Of Sebring

Race Track

Yesterday, the 59th annual 12 Hours of Sebring kicked off not only the American Le Mans Series but also the Intercontinental Le Mans Cup. Audi had won the event every year for the past eight years, but were clearly prepared to write this year off, as they did not bring their new R18 to the race, but rather the older R15+. Audi's main rival Peugeot brought their A-game though, and their 908 HDi-FAP took the win at the hands of Team ORECA.

Peugeot also took third place, with the Honda-powered Highcroft Racing HPD ARX-01 taking second. Audi managed to get 4th and 5th, after their cars took quite a beating. Sebring is a relatively short track; this leads to some serious crowding and there is always a lot of contact early in the race. ALMS will head to Long Beach for a race on April 16th, and we'll see the next ILMC race at Spa-Francorchamps on May 7th.
