2013 12-Hours of Sebring Discussion Tread

My initial thoughts:

Anyone know if this is a point race for Audi? If it is, it doesn't seem very fair. 15 mins into the race and they've pulled away already... I get why ALMS will allow a major manufacture into this race, but if this is a point race AND they will get a credit win in Sebring, they should get an asterisk in the books.

Diesel electric hybrid AWD is just unfair

SpeedTV also displayed the RLL team incorrectly, it still says "BMW E92"

Hey man, thanks for the message. The Alpine kit looks really good, I really have to see it in person before I can make the switch from the AiBs

Too bad the F Car was run off coming into turn one by a GTC car. Great race, hopefully we won't see pushrods and an oval next year now that Nascar owns the series.

Enjoyed the entire week of festivities.
