Porsche RS Spyder lights up ALMS Sebring test
But wait, there's more... (after the jump) After running only 12 laps, Lucas Luhr's fastest time in the Spyder was 1:49.93 - only 0.1 seconds slower than the fastest qualifier at the 2005 Sebring 12 hours, JJ Lehto in the Audi R8 LMP1. I think there's little doubt that the LMP2 Porsche will be contesting for overall race wins this year, and what a great David-vs-Goliath marketing story for Porsche that would be!
In other LMP2 news, Dyson Racing debuted the brand-new Lola B06/10-AER. Like the Audi R10s, the Lola is in the early shakedown and familiarization stage - we can expect the lap times for both to fall quickly.
