The 2007 Petit LeMans, Road Atlanta

Page 1  |  Page 2  |  Page 3  |  Page 4  |  Page 5

Our third ALMS race of the 2007 season. The Petit LeMans is a 1000 mile endurance race, and is a qualifying event for the French 24 Hours of LeMans event. Because of this, the event draws European LeMans teams in addition to the regular ALMS field. Wow, lots of fun, and the Panoz hospitality tent was very nice. If you are in the market for a unique sports car, take a look at the Panoz Esperante. Many thanks again JB, great tickets! If you love sports cars racing, you really have got to catch an ALMS race live. This was our first time to Road Atlanta, and it is a very impressive track.
