    12 Hours of Sebring

    Full-season entrants in the American Le Mans Series combined with the Intercontinental Le Mans Cup field to create a 59-car grid for the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring on March 19, setting the stage for one of the most anticipated editions of the classic endurance sports car race.

    Each of last year's Sebring class winners are back for 2011 – Peugeot Sport in LMP1, Muscle Milk Aston Martin Racing (up to P1 from LMP2), Level 5 Motorsports (LMPC to LMP2), Risi Competizione (GT) and Alex Job Racing (GTC). In addition, defending ALMS champions Highcroft Racing (P1), BMW Team RLL (GT) and Black Swan Racing (GTC), are on the initial Sebring entry.

    In LMP1, Peugeot will defend against the likes of Audi and representatives from Aston Martin, Honda Performance Development, Toyota, Mazda and Pescarolo. The entry in GT is even more expansive with marques such as Aston Martin, BMW, Corvette, Ferrari, Ford, Jaguar, Lamborghini, Panoz and Porsche. In addition, the LMP and GT Challenge classes that debuted in 2010 will compete alongside ILMC entries at both Sebring and Petit Le Mans.

    “The Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring presented by Fresh from Florida has never been more in the spotlight than it will be in 2011,” said Scott Atherton, President and CEO of the American Le Mans Series presented by Tequila Patrón. “The collection of world-class talent – drivers, teams and manufacturers – that will test themselves in one of the world’s most grueling endurance challenges ranks alongside only Le Mans in both quality and quantity. The start of the 2011 American Le Mans Series season – and the Intercontinental Le Mans Cup – will be one for the ages and certainly one worth the devotion and following this great race has enjoyed for nearly 60 years.”

    Ah, well maybe we can find you a mirror online. Shouldn't be too hard to do... races are also often available on their website.

    Unfortunately, my internet options are pretty limited in bandwidth and censored.

    Not Afghanistan and not in this line of work. You sacrifice when working on a .mil network.

    Why are personnel shielded from something like races though? Makes no sense.

    In the case of watching race videos, it's not the content that's censored. It's the fact that it's streaming video. We have limited bandwidth over here. If everyone had access to streaming media, the network would become saturated and it would affect the mission. We aren't exactly using Comcast over here.

    There are commercial satellite internet networks available, but equipment and bandwidth is expensive and speeds can be extremely slow during peak hours on shared networks. Everyone wants to download and stream as much video as possible. It is what it is. Afghanistan doesn't have the infrastructure we're accustomed to.

    That actually makes perfect sense.

    Tommy Milner tweeted that the Vettes were dominating the GT field in testing... looks like they are the cars to beat.

    Oh ya, and if you didn't know, Milner switched to Chevy from BMW Click here to enlarge

    Thats not indicative of they being in front. Not all the GT2 Teams took part in the winter test.

    Well, I'll take a pro driver's word when testing and other teams are there.

    It isn't absolute but it definitely shows confidence.
