Sounds of American LeMans! 2011 Sebring
http://www.Facebook.com/Xrm150 I share great stuff on there!
Please let me know what you liked or hated about this video! I read
Just some clips I took while at the 12hrs of Sebring in 2011. These cars
are so addictive. Wish I got more audio from the paddock area before the
race but I was sleeping in my car. Oh well....there is always next year.
Ferrari vs Corvette at 2010 24 Hours of Le Mans
A great battle between Jaime Melo's #82 Ferrari and Oliver Gavin's #64
Corvette broke out at the end of Hour 8 with the GT2 lead changing back and
forth several times. Just following these laps, the Risi Ferrari went to
the pits for an extended stop due to a gear box issue.

2013 Porsche GT1 Car
NEW LINKS & NEW PICTURES:
l for HD images, and the full story. I allow no modifications of my work
I call it the 2013 Porsche 918-LH Spyder (GT1). I chose 918-LH because the
model number 918, is reminiscent of 917, (hence the 8), so I decided to add
a reminiscent LH model number. Since the 918-LH wouldnt be able to race in
the same class the 917 did (that class is non-existent), Porsche may decide
to place it in the GT1 class. The 918 Spyder comes with 2 electric motors,
and a 500hp V8 from the RS Spyder LMP-2 car. The 918-LH Spyder will drop
the electric motors, but will retain the KERS, and 500hp V8. Since GT1
regulates no more than 600hp, Porsche may remove air-restrictors from the
engine to Boost the output to 600hp.
The 918-LH Spyder will top out in the 200mph range, and will reach 62mph in
less than 3.0 seconds, possibly 2.8 seconds. The weight will be around
1,240 kilos, 2,730 lbs. The weight loss will come from the loss of the
batteries, stripped interior and loss of amenities, even more extensive use
of carbon fiber, and a reconstruction of body-work.
Changes in the body work will come from a wider track, redesigned front and
rear diffusers, as well as a fixed hard-top roof. There will be a very
large rear spoiler; the current one will be fixed. The ram air scoops
positioned over the 600hp V8 will be permanently opened for even more
delivery of power. The 918-LH Spyders headlight system will receive a minor
revision as well as the taillights. It will also get new mirrors positioned
over the front-wheels straight from the Carrera GT.
If the 918-LH Spyder does become a reality, it will likely debut at the
2013 24hrs of Le Mans, as well as in the Le Mans Series.
As well as rendered bodywork, I also took the time took the time to render
several liveries reminiscent of 70s 917 designs. I currently have a few
rendered, one also for "TeamSpeed.com", I'm working on a few now, and will
post them later.
*Note; All vehicles are liveried according to 2013 speculated Le Mans 24
Mike Rockenfeller Crash Le Mans 24 Hours 2011
Audi suffered its second unbelievable accident just hours after Allan
McNish's race-ending crash, with driver Mike Rockenfeller reportedly
climbing from the destroyed R18 under his own power.
Rockenfeller, part of the defending race-winning No. 1 Audi R18 driving
team, was attempting to pass the No 71 AF Corse Ferrari F458 driven by
Michael Waltrip Racing's Rob Kaufmann at 10:40 p.m. when the two cars made
contact at the ultra-fast Kink section of the Mulsanne Straight.
Official reports from both teams are forthcoming.
