2012 Long Beach Recap
2012 Long Beach Recap
April 23 2012 08:16:04 PM ESTRichard Prince
Long Beach is the shortest race of year at only 2hrs long, but it was arguably more eventful then the 12hrs of Sebring. The weekend started off on Friday with very minimal scheduled track time for the ALMS cars due to the combined weekend with IRL, and a few others. Adding to the difficulty was a large rain storm that canceled qualifying. The grid was then set by championship points, so the Vettes started P2 & P3.

This was Antonio Garcia's first time at the Long Beach circuit, so with only a few wet laps under his belt he had to learn the track during the race. In the opening laps Garcia got caught up in an accident. Luckily even with the damage, Garcia and Magnussen managed to pilot the #3 C6.R to a 4th place finish.

The #4 car managed to escape the pile up in the opening laps and Tommy Milner put of a clinic dicing back and forth with BMW. After he handed the car over to Oliver Gavin the #4 pulled out a good lead, managed the tires, and pulled out a victory. Check out the hardware.

Roll on Laguna Seca!

It was a great race and a great win for Corvette Racing. I truly believe this year will be a battle between Corvette Racing and BMW. That is as long as IMSA does not step in and add all sorts of adjustments to CR.
