The second round of the 2011 American Le Mans season has come to a close with the #56 BMW, driven by Joey Hand and Dirk Muller, taking the win in the GT class. It was a typical street fight: close bumper-to-bumper racing from start to finish.
The #4 Corvette Racing C6.R driven by Jan Magnussen and Oliver Gavin finished 2nd in the GT class…
…and the #62 Risi Competizione Ferrari 458GT driven by Jaime Melo and Toni Vilander took 3rd.
Falken Tire Porsche finished the two hour race with their best race result yet: 4th place!
We'll be taking a behind the scenes look at the Falken Tire race and pre-race pit action in the coming days.
Tommy Milner and his co-driver, Olivier Beretta, battled the best they could in the midpack after a not-so-good 9th qualifying position. They crossed the finish line with a respectable 5th place. Tommy will be blogging about his Long Beach experience in the coming days, so keep an eye out for that as well!
