of the car was taken over entirely by Don Panoz and entered in the LMP1

Le Mans - 1972 - Start
The Matra of Jean-Pierre Beltoise and Chris Amon took the lead at start,
but broke its V12 at the beginning the third lap. This caused enough
consternation among the other Matra drivers to allow the Lolas of Bonnier
and Hugues de Fierlant to take the lead. Bonnier was slowed down by a
deflated tire and after the first pit stops the two remaining Matra 670s
were leading the race again with François Cevert/Howden Ganley on front.
Even if the reliability of the Ford-Cosworth DFV that powered the Lolas was
questionable on a 24-hour race, there was some hope for a general failure
of the Matras, and Jo Bonnier decided to keep some pressure on. The Lolas
were running fast, with Bonnier establishing a new lap record early in the
evening. The other Lola broke its gearbox.
Graham Hill took the lead with his Matra around midnight.
At dawn the Matra 670 swapped their position again. Bonnier's Lola T280 was
still there with a surprisingly healthy DFV V8. During the night some race
incidents caused unexpected pit stops and the car was only eighth but the
F1-inspired Lola was running really fast the early morning. Just before
8:30 a.m., Bonnier's Lola came upon the Ferrari GTB4 of Florian Vetsch
before Indianapolis curve. The witnesses are not entirely sure what Bonnier
hit first, the Ferrari or the barrier, but the Lola went over the barrier
and into the trees killing Bonnier.
This tragedy left the Matras without any serious opposition. Despite an
unscheduled pit stop, the car of Ganley and Cevert was still leading when
Ganley got hit in the tail by a Chevrolet Corvette. This gave the lead to
Henri Pescarolo and Graham Hill. The David Hobbs/Jean-Pierre Jabouille
Matra 660 was stopped with transmission problems.
The Matra 670 "Short Tail" piloted by Pescarolo and Hill took first place,
and the 670 "Long Tail" driven by Cevert and Ganley finished second. This
was the first victory of a French car since 1950, and made Graham Hill the
first, and so far only, driver to win the Triple Crown of the Indianapolis
500, the 24 Hours of Le Mans and the Formula One World Championship.
With such notable results at the top, the third position of the Porsche
908L driven by Reinhold Joest, Michel Weber and Mario Casoni that was
mainly the result of careful preparation by Joest and his team was largely
unnoticed, yet remarkable.
Corvette Racing - 2013 12 Hours of Sebring
Tommy Milner made a late pass for the lead and then held on for the final
15 minutes as the No. 4 GT Compuware Corvette C6.R won the American Le Mans
Series GT class 61st Annual Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring at Sebring
International Raceway on Saturday.
The No. 4 Corvette C6.R - driven by 2012 Drivers' champions Tommy Milner
and Oliver Gavin, and Richard Westbrook - overcame an early electrical
issue and two key penalties to win the 2013 ALMS opener. It is Gavin's
fifth victory at Sebring; Milner and Westbrook each recorded his first.
