Re: 54th annual Twelve Hours of Sebring picks

Where can you find out? I have been checking out the Sebring & ALMS websites but the teams and drivers link is under reconstruction. Is this the best place to look?

Dyson Racing's new AER-powered Lolas should be very fast.

GT2 will be a much more competitive class than last year.

Two DBR9s will be at Sebring again.

Sebring last year.



Ferrari has returned to the ALMS with two F430 GTCs.

Some interesting news...

"LMSR.NET does not often pay much attention to hearsay but today
at Sebring, MJ says he heard rumblings of a potential defection if
Porsche is not either moved to LMP1, restricted, or somehow
bridled. You knew the privateer vs works backlash was coming
eventually. And it is reflected in the GT1 and LMP1 fields already.
Not sure what needs to be done whether it be success ballast (ala
FIA-GT) or insisting on customer cars only but a privateer running
against works budgets is like trying to sink a aircraft carrier with a
peashooter. No criticism here, just a growing feeling of what may
come to a head eventually. We report, you decide......"
