ALMS Sebring 12 Hour Highlights - #30 NGT Porsche + Helicopter!
The NGT Motorsport team entered it's first professional race at the Mobil 1
12 Hours of Sebring, which is part of the American Le Mans Series
championship. Their regular drivers Henrique Cisneros and Carlos Kauffmann
were coming off the back of winning the Patron GT3 challenge in 2010. They
enlisted Pro driver Sean Edwards to accompany them during the long distance
They were consistently fastest throughout the winter test day and most of
Sebring week, but two crashed at T17 were to push the team beyond their
normal call of duty. They were unable to qualify, but the team pulled an
all nighter and had the car ready for the morning warm up, where the car
was quickest once again!
The race got underway, with NGT climbing all the way to the lead by hour 1
and holding onto it for most of the next 6 hours. Only for a mistaken wave
by and the subsequent penalty which lost them 3 laps, they would have been
fighting for the victory. Nevertheless they fought all the way back to 3rd
place and never gave up, which was an amazing feat in their first Pro race!
They also set the fastest lap of the race on a 2.07.7.
TRUTH IN 24 II - Every Second Counts
The Le Mans 24 Hours are a legend. They are mentioned in the same breath as
the Rallye Monte Carlo, the Monaco Grand Prix and the Indianapolis 500.
Since 1923, hundreds of thousands of motorsport enthusiasts have been
flocking to La Sarthe year by year to experience the one-day race. To watch
the protagonists in their sports cars battle for each place and each meter
of tarmac with bated breath. The drivers cover 4,800 kilometers in 24 hours
- almost as many as the Formula One racers in a whole year. Every Le Mans
winner has gone down in history. The three Audi drivers Andr‚Äö
Lotterer, Beno≈ít Tr‚Äöluyer and Marcel F‚Äûssler did so in a
special way with the triumph they achieved in 2011. The film TRUTH IN 24 II
documents the tenth and arguably most emotional triumph of the brand with
the four rings at this sports car classic. After two Audi R18 TDI cars have
retired following spectacular accidents, the remaining Audi fights a
dramatic battle for overall victory with the three Peugeot 908 cars ? which
the Audi trio ultimately decides in its favor with a narrow margin of 13
seconds. The film captures the entire drama of the fourth-narrowest running
of the Le Mans 24 Hours ? with intimate insights into the team of Audi
Sport and breath-taking pictures.

Rolex Sports Car Series: Joey Hand gets punted off course at Mid-Ohio and

uninjured... Lucky kid...
The 1965 Sebring 12 Hour Grand Prix - Part 1 of 5
The 1965 12 Hours of Sebring Grand Prix is legendary because it was won by
American drivers driving an American car. Jim Hall and his Chaparral cars
broke several speed records but the overall records were not broken because
of the record rainfall half way through the race. That deluge, the worst
in Sebring history, also makes this race a legend. Sit back and enjoy the
race in five parts.
