A Look Back at Corvette Racing’s Breakthrough Win in 2001

Le Mans Test Day Sets the Stage for Sports Car Racing’s Main Event

The American Le Mans Series at Long Beach proved to be another tough battle in the GT class. Long Beach is often referred to as a street fight and that description was apt for describing the multiple lead changes and some shocking mistakes made by drivers during the two hour race. ESPN 2 carries the replay Sunday at 5:00 pm EST. Hit the jump for the results.
When the announcement came earlier this year that the ALMS would only be shown live on ESPN 3, a lot of us felt left out as we are on non-affiliated cable providers. The thought of missing the entire season was disappointing to say the least. Recently, I literally stumbled across a way to view ESPN3 content. We’ve tested this only twice and both times we were successful in being able to view the programming on ESPN3.com. I really hope I’m not screwing the pooch as they say but if it worked for me, perhaps it may work for you.
Corvette Racing New Guy’s Guide to the First Street Race of the Season
LONG BEACH, Calif., April 11, 2011 – Sebring and Long Beach are the yin and yang of the American Le Mans Series. Last month’s season-opening Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring is the longest event on the ALMS schedule; the upcoming two-hour American Le Mans Series at Long Beach on April 16 is the shortest. The distance between the former bomber base in central Florida that hosts the Sebring enduro and the glittering bayside circuit in Southern California is measured not only in miles but also in culture and style. Long Beach is a street race, a beach party, and a celebration of spring.
One of the benefits of parking in the Corvette Corral at Sebring is the access you get to members of the Corvette Racing team. Every Friday afternoon prior to the Saturday start, Corvette Racing’s Program Manager Doug Fehan addresses the crowd. This year, he talked about the upcoming season, Johnny O’Connell and Tommy Milner and of course, the 12 hour race at Sebring.
