Round nine of the 2005 ALMS season is the 1,000 mile/10 hour "Petit Le Mans" at Road Atlanta. Maserati is looking for repeat success there.

The following is from maseraticorse.com:

15/10/2005 - Laguna Seca - The No. 35 Maserati MC12 would have finished on the GT1 podium had the final 2005 American Le Mans Series race run the usual two-hour 45-minute length.

But the season finale was a four-hour event and trouble hit the Maserati at 2h47, forcing an early retirement from the race.

Andrea Bertolini started the race from sixth on the GT1 grid and drove a strong stint, moving up to fourth before handing off to Fabrizio de Simone at 1h9. Quick driving, timely pit strategy and some luck with caution periods put de Simone into the class lead just past the two-hour mark of the race. He led for 17 minutes before dropping back as his tires, which hadn't been changed on the previous pit stop, started to wear.

A competitor pass clipped the Maserati, bending the right-rear toe link. The crew replaced it and sent Bertolini back on track. Riding on cold tires, he locked up the wheels, missed the apex of the Corkscrew turn and hit the curb. The impact broke the car's front splitter and radiator, taking it out of the race. It was the first time the car did not finish a race during the 10-race season.

The # 50 Panoz Esperante GTLM of Robin Liddell and Bill Auberlen finished 2nd in GT2 at Laguna Seca. They had led for several laps.

Liddel was bumped by Andrea Bertolini in the Maserati MC12, but the car was still fine.

I don't think that the MC12 will race in the 2006 season.

Risi Competizione helped Maserati with the MC12 in 2005, but they will race two Ferrari F430 GTs in the GT2 class for 2006.
