Racing Results from the forbidden LMS

Aston Martin was able to nail down a 1-2-3 finish at last weekend's Nurburgring 1000km, putting them securely into first place in the LMS. ('LeMans Series', the European equivalent to the ALMS,) Good thing Speedtv.com reports on these things, because they definitely DO NOT broadcast them on television. Why not? Chalk it up to economics, blame it on NASCAR fever that doesn't really exist, whatever the case the average racing fan gets gypped.

A Ginetta-Zytek 09S took the LMP2 crown, being run by the Quifel-ASM Team. GT1 became a battle of attrition, the Luc Alphand Aventures Corvette C6.R and Larbre Competition Saleen S7-R leading most of the race, both cars retiring with mechanical issues. This delivered the win to Larbre’s Roland Berville, Sebastien Dumez and Laurent Groppi; piloting another S7R. GT2 went to Team Felbermayr Proton’s Marc Lieb and Richard Lietz in their Porsche GT3.

Heres hoping Speed decides to broadcast this exciting series, along with many others they choose to overlook because of advertising concerns . . . ihk . . .
