2013 ALMS Racing Mid Point: Corvette Racing in the lead!

This weekend we completed the 5th of 10 races in the 2013 American Le Mans Series season.  The No. 4 Corvette finished first driven by Oliver Gavin and Tommy Milner.  They are the only driver combo to repeat a victory so far this season; I'm sure they are hoping to repeat their driving championship from last year. 

Once again this year the battle is primarily between Corvette and BMW; Team Corvette has three 1st place finishes; the two other 1st place finishes when to BMW.  The Viper team is much improved over last year, however, and at the midpoint is in third place ahead of Porsche, Ferrari and Aston Martin teams.  In the fifth race the finish was Corvette - Viper - Viper - Corvette adding a truly "American" flavor to the "American" Le Mans Series!

The next race will be on August 11th at Road America in Wisconsin; sadly I won't be able to attend this year as we did the past two years.
