Not just the 1,000-mile, nine-hour, 37-minute Petit Le Mans race, but it was over for the American Le Mans Series which, like its counterpart Grand-Am, which ended its season at Lime Rock a few weeks ago, will cease to exist as the final steps are taken to merge the two sports car series into one for the 2014 season and beyond.cheap watches sale Petit Le Mans will again close out the season in 2014, but for the Tudor United SportsCar Series. For the final Petit run under the ALMS banner, the overall victory went to the P1-class Rebellion Racing Lola-Toyota of Neel Jani, Nick Heidfeld and Nicholas Prost. Even that win was bittersweet, as the P1 class will not return next year, leaving the slightly slower P2 cars, which will battle modified Grand-Am Daytona Prototypes, for overall dominance.cheap watches sale It very nearly happened in this Petit Le Mans, as the three other P1 cars all had problems, with only the Lola-Mazda of Dyson Racing running at the end, finishing 11th. The Muscle Milk Honda P1 car of Klaus Graf, Lucas Luhr and Romain Dumas led almost all the first half of the race until overheating took them out, dropping the car to 32nd in the 34-car field. The fourth P1 car, the DeltaWing of Katharine Legge and Andy Meyrick, finished one spot ahead of the Muscle Milk car, in 31st after the gearbox failed. The Muscle Milk car had already wrapped up the championship.Fake Rolex Watches So with only the Rebellion P1 car running without problems, positions two, three and four overall went to P2 cars. Second overall and first in class was the number 551 Honda of Ryan Briscoe, Marino Franchitti and team owner Scott Tucker. Just behind, on the same lap, was the Extreme Speed Patron Honda of David Brabham, Scott Sharp and Anthony Lazzaro. One lap behind was the number 552 team Tucker Honda of Guy Cosmo, Johnny Kane and Peter Dumbrek. The 551 car was the series champion.Replica Rolex Watches The field was bunched up under caution with about 15 laps to go when the TRG Porsche GTC car of Damien Faulkner stalled on the track. When the green flag fell again, it was a dash to the finish, led by Jani, who was turning out clear-track laps under one minute and 12 seconds, nearly two seconds faster than the P2 cars behind him. Finishing an impressive fifth overall and first in class was the spec PC car of Bar 1 with driver Kyle Marcelli, Chris Cumming and Stefan Johansson. Just behind them was another car, this one the 8Star car of Sean Rayhall and Oz Negri.In GT, it was a tight battle between the Chevrolet Corvettes, SRT Vipers, BMW Z4s, Porsche 911s and Ferrari F458s, with the top nine GT cars separated by just six laps. The unexpected winner was the Falken tire-sponsored Porsche 911 GT3 RSR of Nick Tandy, Bryan Sellers and Wolf Henzler. Second in class was the number 56 Team Rahal BMW Z4 GTE of Dirk Muller, John Edwards and Bill Auberlen. Third, and on the same lap as the first two GT finishers, was the Risi Ferrari F458 Italia of Olivier Beretta, Matteo Malucelli and Robin Liddell. The Chevrolet Corvette of Jan Magnussen and Antonio Garcia, with help from Jordan Taylor, finished sixth overall, but that was enough to give Magnussen and Garcia the championship.And in the GTC Porsche 911 GT3 Cup spec class, the Flying Lizard entry of Nelson Canache, Spencer Pumpelly and Madison Snow won the class and finished 22nd overall. Fouth in class was the Alex Job car of Cooper MacNeil and Jeroen Bleekmolen, who took the championship with help from Sebastiaan Bleekmolen.On a day where intermittent rain and drizzle fell during the first five hours, the Road Atlanta crowd appeared to be fairly large, and most fans stayed until the end. The 34-car field was a little disappointing – there were four P1 entries, four P2 entries, eleven in GT, eight in GTC and seven in PC.Sports car racing resumes in January with the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona – and the first race ever for the Tudor United SportsCar Series.
