We first attended an ALMS race in 2000. After that first race, we attended all of the Bay Area races until the final event this year. We fell in love with Le Mans racing (and the ALMS) because of the prototypes – the specially-built “monsters of the Mulsanne” that thrill with outright speed (and occasional airborne flight).
P1 prototypes did not survive the merger between the ALMS and the Grand-Am, and Muscle Milk’s Honda ARX-03 will be the final ALMS prototype champion. Much credit to Klaus Graf and Lucas Luhr for two straight ALMS class championships. The team is building a P2 car for the new Tudor United series, but we’ll always miss the sights and sounds of the big boys. Off to Le Mans, I guess…..
60 for 60: to celebrate the end of our racing year, we’re posting the 60 favorite images we captured this season, one each day from November 1 to December 31.
