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.
The World's Fastest Lotus? - /TUNED
Frank Profera has spent six years making his Lotus go faster, stop shorter, and corner harder.
Though it only has to move around 2,150 lbs, Frank's Lotus makes 680 wheel
horsepower with a
twin-charged 1.8L engine; giving it a better power-to-weight ratio than
Mario Andretti's Formula One Lotus. It's an ongoing project that may never
be finished, because of Frank's never-ending obsession with speed. We had
to take it for a ride.

2012 F1: What's Learned From 1st 2 Races - /SHAKEDOWN
Leo Parente looks at the 1st 2 F1 races, but fears we really haven't
learned much. The 1st race is never an ultimate indicator. The Malaysia
rain proved deceptive to all - Except Alonso and Perez. Still, we rip
through the list of teams to hint at what may have to happen next if anyone
wants to win the 2012 World Championship. Plus, our new friends Dr.
Ullrich and Mr. Baretsky from Audi are back with relevant quotes. Vettel,
too [Don't tell Allan McNish, Leo's been seeing another racer].

12 Hours of Sebring Race 1966
The 1966 12 Hours of Sebring was an endurance race held at the 5.2 mile
(8.3 km) Sebring International Raceway, Sebring, Florida, United States on
March 26, 1966. It was the sixteenth running of the endurance classic and
the second round of the 1966 World Sportscar Championship season. The race
proved to be a disastrous event; one of the darkest in American motorsports
Ford had just come off a 1-2-3 triumph at the first 24 Hours of Daytona in
February, with 2 of their 7-liter engined GT40 Mk.II's being run by Carroll
Shelby. They had effectively trounced Ferrari and Porsche, and were looking
to do the same thing at Sebring in March.
Ford's assault on Sebring (which has always been a good preparation run for
Le Mans) was unprecedented. There were 11 GT40 Mk.I's, Mk.II's and a
special X-1 Roadster (which was a heavily modified GT40 Mk.I with an
aluminum chassis, a Mk.II nose, no roof and a 7-liter 427 engine, the same
motor in a Mk.II) at Sebring- these cars were entered by at least 5
different teams- all of whom had direct factory support. The two main works
teams, however, were Shelby-American, a team with direct connections to
Ford and seasoned with lots of road-racing experience; and the Holman &
Moody team, which was known for its successes in NASCAR. There were also 2
works Ferrari's (originally there were supposed to be 5) and 2 Chaparral
2D's. American Dan Gurney qualified his Shelby-entered Mk.II on pole
position with a lap record of 2:54.6, followed by the new Ferrari 330P3 of
Bob Bondurant and Mike Parkes, then a Mk.I of Britons Graham Hill and
Jackie Stewart, then another Mk.II of Americans Mark Donohue and Walt
Hansgen, then the X-1 of Briton Ken Miles and American Lloyd Ruby and then
a Chaparral 2D of Americans Jim Hall and Hap Sharp.
Ford would dominate yet again. Gurney and Grant were leading- and on the
last lap, while Gurney was driving, the car's engine failed. People at the
pits were expecting Gurney to take victory- but Ken Miles crossed the
finish line first in the GT40 X-1. Gurney was pushing his GT40 Mk.II on the
course, and he made it to the finish line. Although pushinlg a car during
the race was illegal- and the car was disqualified, and the Holman/Moody
entered GT40 Mk.II was awarded 2nd place. 3rd was an Essex Wire entered
GT40 Mk.I of Skip Scott and Peter Revson, and then a works Porsche finished

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.
