    • ALMS 2012 - Porsche takes the victory at Lime Rock

      Congratulations to Porsche and drivers Patrick Long and Jorg Bergmeister for their first place finish at the NorthEast Grand Prix held at Lime Rock in Connecticut. This marks the first victory for Porsche of the 2012 season and is the first win since 2011 at Laguna Seca. The GT class fight was very tight with cars swapping positions up until the very end with the four lead cars within less than a second of each other in the final 15 minutes.

      The Corvettes finished in second and third making a very strong showing and clearly showing they seem to be the cars/team to beat this year. Full results are below.
