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.

Some classic footage I found in my vault of stuff, I apologize for some of
the fuzzy stuff, but it's VERY old VHS tapes that I pulled this off of
ALMS Sebring Winter Test with Sean Edwards in a GTC Porsche
Ride onboard with Sean Edwards for a few laps round the famous Sebring race
track, in preparation for the 12 Hours of Sebring 2011. He is driving the
#30 Porsche 997 Cup in the GTC class, run by NGT Motorosport.
The team ended the two day test fastest on a 2.05.6, half a second clear of

Here is the morning warm up session at the 2010 Pirelli Ultimate Track Car
Challenge presented by Grassroots Motorsports at VIR. This 2010 Dodge
Challenger built by Chip Ganassi Racing ran very strong in the warm up, but
had an issue that kept it from running any of the timed sessions during the
day. Thanks to Zenith Aviation and Bob Stanford for giving me the
opportunity to drive the car--look for it again at future events. Vholdr

What is it like to stand trackside at a major motorsports event? Well, now
you know with trackside. No story, no opinion, just raw energy and
excitement. This is what it's like to hear, feel, and see the best racing
cars in the world, from just over the other side of the wall.
