ALMS – Sebring 12 Hours Dramas Revisited

“I don’t know which of the racing gods I’ve offended, but I’d certainly like to apologize,” – Oliver Gavin

Corvette Racing

Oliver Gavin, No. 4 Corvette C6.R joked after the incident where two Corvettes collided in the pits and effectively ruined the chance of what could be a good weekend for them. It’s just mind boggling something like this could happen. We’ve seen similar incident with Peugeot at LeMans, but this looks more serious. It was a bizarre misunderstanding that could have been avoided, however that’s racing and I feel bad for these guys.

The unexpected must be expected. It’s the truth of motor racing.

Extreme Speed Motorsports Ferrari F430GT

With a bit more than 2 hours to go, Scott Sharp’s Ferrari F430 GT2 catches some serious fire.

J.R. Hildebrand crashes into the tyres and causes the second full course caution of the day.

Falken Porsche and Porsche Flying Lizzard r

The Falken Porsche suffered a tyre failure for the second time, the tyre collected Jörg Bergmeister of Porsche Flying Lizzard. Bergmeister then scrambled for the pit with heavily damaged rims and no right rear tyres. Unfortunately, he had to sit in pit lane under yellow until the pits were open before the crew could work on the car, sending it several laps down. Really unlucky since Flying Lizzard was a strong contender for the race win.

I hope you enjoy some highlights of the drama for this year opening ALMS series at Sebring. Thanks to technology, news nowadays travel fast. With that, I’m excited to bring you more fresh content in the future as I explore motor racing around the globe. And a special thanks to our USA correspondent, James Boone for bringing us images and updates from Sebring.
