Default Sebring Corvette Corral

I spent last weekend at the 12 hours of Sebring and had tickets to the Corvette Corral. I took a little over 600 pictures, mostly of the race, but I did take some in the corral, so here are a few.

Here are few of the Team cars showing some of the new changes, like the new wider body, the new exhaust position to get a little more down force and the new aero mirrors.

Thanks for sharing! Glad to see the new changes to the c6r this year helped in their podium win. Been very frustrating these past few years, dealing with the likes of Porsche, BMW, Ferrari....

They ran second and third in the GT class.

The race was amazing, the first time I had actually been able to sit and watch a majority of the race.

Corvette was owning the race for quite a while until the end, BMW and Ferrari had a good presence at the end.

Didn't see any Mustangs...

No you won't see Mustang's in ALMS GT. If you want to see Mustangs, you will need to watch the Grand AM (NASCAR's version of sports car racing).
ALMS is true sports car racing, Corvette, Ferrari, Porsche, Aston Martin and some how a BMW got in.

The BMW RLL team did a quite a job using their pit stalls just in front of the Corvettes to take the lead on two occasions in the closing hours. Leaving their take off tires in front of the "3" car was pure sportsmanship. That was probably Letterman's contribution to the race plan.

It was a great race and a testament to the durability of the cars and the Pratt Miller people.

Yes I am, in fact I have all of the Topaz plugins. I also have Photoshop CS5.1 now to go along with them.

Thanks for letting me know of these.

That answered my question! I was just going to post a question as to how the yellows and reds were so saturated! I'm going to have to check out Topaz Adjust...
