I'd love to see that video with LMP1 Audis & Toyotas vs. F1 cars.

The F1 cars might run away for the first 60 or so laps, but by lap 100 only the P1 cars will be still running at all.

Missed out on some good racing at COTA today IMHO. Not to mention Turner Motorsports' M3s came away with 2 wins today.

I wish I could've seen a race back when you had the turbo V8s, V10s, and the glorious V12s on track all at the same time. Literally heaven.

I agree, especially the ferrari V12. Amazing machines. Though the new engines have less cylinders and displacement, it's even more impressive how much power is being squeezed from such a compact package!

ALMS and Grand Am are announcing the new class categories and rules March 14th, excited to see how they have decided to organize and structure the merger.

What a BS video, to start with the angles are completely different, wide v short tele lens and I didn't notice any LMP1 cars running in the GT race; an Audi R18 or Toyota TS030 would be slower than an F1 car but not by the margins this video suggests.

When did they ever have turbo V8's running at the same time as V10's & V12's? As far as I know F1 has never ever had turbo V8's running. Group C cars used to run all manor of engines, turbo and non turbo, 4, 6, 8, 10 & 12 cylinders all at the same time in the glory days for the sport.
