A Sneak Peak At GT2 World War 2011
I've always called ALMS GT2 a War because the battles are serious and heads may roll if your not victorious. Which is what happen at Risi this year when the guy that called for the splash and dash at the end of Petit Le Mans while leading resulted in them coming up 1/4 of a lap short of not only victory but locking up the Manufacturer's title for Ferrari. That man is now unemployed or at least not working for Risi this season.
This is some serious competition and I have have begged the ALMS to rebuild their series around this class. I am supported in that call by various outspoken critics and fans of the ALMS both here and abroad.
But anyway, here's a preview and introduction to Walker Racing who is now running Falken's updated 2010 911 GT3 RSR. I always felt the team entrusted with Falken's GT program even if they are fellow Californians where in over their heads. Walker Racing, an experienced team who's members have won in all sorts of Open Wheel series including the Indy 500 and F1. You see how Rahal-Letterman BMW has responded, that proves Open Wheel teams are well suited to ALMS racing.
Maybe we'll see more in the future instead of chasing NASCAR drivers to run the Indy 500 and Brickyard 400...
More to come as we gear up for Sebring ILMC 20011
