    12 Hours of Sebring - Saturday

    Traditionally, the American Le Mans Series takes off into the new season with a classic: The 12 Hours of Sebring – running for the 57th time on Saturday - is the oldest sports car race in the USA and one of the greatest challenges for drivers and teams. With the further developed 911 GT3 RSR, Porsche is keen to repeat last year’s victory on the airfield circuit in the heart of Florida against strong competition and with this lay the foundations for a successful title defense.

    Re: 12 Hours of Sebring - Saturday

    I don't think that  Eurosport will be carrying races from the ALMS. They will however carry coverage from the LMS races.

    Try this for Live video stream

    I really recommend the radio commentary (John Hindhaugh and his team are FANTASTIC) together with the live timing.

    ^^^Wow! I knew nothing about that documentary.

    They contracted NFL Films shoot it  ... and everyone here knows NFL Films is THE BEST in the business when it comes to shooting and editing sports films!

    Really looking forward to seeing it on Friday night. It'll probably hit YouTube / Google Video in 2-3 days.

    Re: 12 Hours of Sebring - Saturday

    Surprising time difference between Audi and Peugeot, I am very curious if this predicts the teams´ race performance. According to Audi´s drivers, there is still some time needed to iron out a couple of flaws.

    Re: 12 Hours of Sebring - Saturday

    I think this year the BMW and Ferrari will gve a hard time to the "old" 997...

    Re: 12 Hours of Sebring - Saturday

    The Audi is performing very well straight out of the box. I personally think that they have the measure of the Peugeot's.

    The new 09 RSR's are also proving to be very quick. 

    These test times are still only slightly indicative, as different teams are carrying out different testing programs. (see Flying Lizard car #45 afternoon test time)

    There is more testing today  before official practice andqualifying starts on Thursday.

    on tv

    Three television specials, including one live prime-time telecast, are featured this week on two different networks as the world’s top sports car drivers head to Sebring, FL for one of the world’s most grueling endurance classics - the 57th Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring presented by Fresh from Florida.

    SPEED starts off the trifecta for sports car fans with “American Le Mans Series: A Look at 2009”, a one-hour live special from Sebring International Raceway at 7:00 pm ET on Thursday, March 19 with hosts Leigh Diffey, Brian Till, Calvin Fish and Dorsey Schroeder, and pit reporters Jamie Howe and Justin Bell who joins the SPEED team for the first time this year. The network will interview drivers, team owners and corporate partners in a glimpse at the 57th running of the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring presented by Fresh from Florida as well as provide an overview of the coming 2009 campaign.

    SPEED will follow the one-hour live presentation with a special from 8:00-9:00 pm that evening called “Project LMP1: Acura’s Next Challenge”. It features Acura’s descent to LMP1 where it will take on traditional behemoths Audi and Peugeot. In addition to on-track test footage, the feature goes behind the scenes with de Ferran Motorsports and Patrón Highcroft Racing to unveil the complexities of creating and managing a program at the highest level of sports car racing. The back-to-back specials have encore presentations later than evening at 11:00 p.m. and 12:00 a.m. A third viewing is available Saturday, March 21 at 3:00 a.m. and 4:00 a.m. with Acura’s special to re-air at 9 a.m. Saturday, immediately prior to the 10:30 a.m. green flag for the 57th running of the 12 Hours. In addition “Project LMP1: Acura’s Next Challenge” will also air Sunday, March 22 at 3:00 p.m..

    ESPN debuts “Truth in 24” documentary at 8:00 p.m. ET Friday, March 20. “Truth in 24”, produced by Emmy-winning NFL Films, is a dramatic look at the evolution of Audi Sport and its now legendary R10 TDI race car as it prepares for and competes in the world’s most famous auto race - the 24 Hours of Le Mans. The chronicling of the 2008 Le Mans classic showcases the critical strategy that resulted in one of the most dramatic calls in the history of the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

    SPEED’s live telecast of the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring presented by Fresh from Florida begins at 10:00 a.m. ET Saturday, March 21 and concludes at 11 p.m. with only a two-hour absence for other programming from noon to 2:00 p.m.

    Re: 12 Hours of Sebring - Saturday

    Sebring is in fact, one of the most grueling races in the world.

    There's an addage in the sportscar world that says that if you want to win Le Mans, then you need to be able to win at Sebring first.



    Re: 12 Hours of Sebring - Saturday

    Andrea,any way to see something in Italy?

    In past years i was able to see Motors TV or Ab Moteurs channels and they follow ALMS..but now i don't know where to search...In Italy we have only Nuvolari,Eurosport and some Sky Sport channels,but they let see only football,basket match and some other uninteresting thingsSmiley

            No RS Spyders in the ALMS this year.Smiley

    RS Spyder is already 4 years old car and its development has stopped. So I prefer no RS Spyders on the grid than a half-hearted private effort that would leave a bad taste for this car.

    Better to leave when you are on top after 3 magnificent ALMS seasons.

    Re: 12 Hours of Sebring - Saturday

    Agreed!....but they will be at Le Mans and at Spa (LMS).

    Although they will remain competitive, they will not dominate like they did in the past.

            Because the homologation car for the RSR is the GT3RS and that has not yet had a facelift.


    Re: 12 Hours of Sebring - Saturday

    Thanks for the info about the homologation.Smiley
