    Default ALMS Mosport Results

    Thanks very much for the only result I can find for todays race, Cajun. The americanlemans site Still doesn't have results posted and I can't find results anywhere else. I can't believe they're so laggard with posting results.
    So the Vette won, huh? That's great - right out of the box ( although with lots of GT1 victory experience ) and they blast right to the front, laying waste to the doran ford GT in the process!!!!

    This is great news....however it's probably better suited to Autocrossing and Motorsports so I am going to move it over there.

    Hang on here we go......

    Not sure, but since they're standard production cars, they're readily available.

    Ford: "This is what WE can do!"
    Chevy: "Yeah, we do this all the time..."

    btw, the final standings show the ford GT as "car 40 slow on course"!

    As Ford Himself has it:

    “The Ford GT represents the pinnacle of performance from Ford Motor Company and is a great opportunity for the savvy collector,” Edsel B. Ford II, Ford board member, said in a statement.

    This was from an auto event as reported by Autoweek, 20 June 09

    Doran/Yates/Roush's GT has been getting it's head caved in all season while the new Vette wins in it's 3rd race. I know it's a privateer team vs. the Vette works team, but since the GT is supposed to all that, ...

    So much for the "pinnacle"/cobra/gt/ on and on
