Exclamation Ferrari vs Porsche in Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring (more to join in 08)

March 17, 2007 endurance race

Jaime Melo was driving the # 62 Ferrari F430 GTC while Jörg Bergmeister was driving the # 45 Porsche 911 GT3 RSR. Both cars had Michelin tires.

YouTube - 2007 12 Hours of Sebring

The 1st and 2nd place cars in GT2 completed 330 laps. Just 16 were under caution for the 55th running of the Twelve Hours of Sebring. The margin of victory was just .202 seconds.

Why doesn't the American Le Mans Series promote this race?

tell them here

American Le Mans Series :: World Class

Ferrari got its first victory in the Twelve Hours of Sebring since 1998 when Didier Theys, Mauro Baldi, and Gianpierro Moretti won in a Ferrari 333SP.

The back stretch is called the Ulmann straight.

Part of the track used to be a training base during WWII for B-17s.

More GT2 cars will join the American Le Mans Series in 2008. Also, Hankook tires will race in GT2.

Johnny Mowlem leaves Risi for Corsa Motorsports

Johnny Mowlem Official Web Site

American Le Mans Series :: World Class

Corsa Motorsports

YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.



Johnny raced with Risi Competizione in the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring and the 24 Hours of Le Mans. They won Sebring. A warm-up spin and crash at Petit Le Mans may have led to his departure from the Risi team.

experience with F430s on Michelins, Dunlops, and Pirellis

"Corsa boss Steve Pruitt said he had talked to Mowlem at the suggestion of Ferrari. He explained that for a team that will be developing South Korean-made Hankook tyres over the next three years, Mowlem's experience of the 430 on Pirellis, Michelins and Dunlops would be crucial."
