Click above to view the video after the jump

The 58th running of the 12 Hours of Sebring is set to begin tomorrow at 10:30 AM, and with Audi out and Peugeot already dominating the LMP class in the qualifying sessions, the attention turns to the ALMS GT cars – specially the Porsche and Corvette teams.

The rivalry between the Flying Lizards and the Corvette C6.Rs has been stoked (even further) by Chevrolet's new racing webisodes, and after last year's final lap at Laguna Seca, the GT-class feuding is sure to make for some great racing.

After the jump you'll find a video documenting the Lizard's practice session yesterday, including Hans Herrman – the winner of the 1960 race – taking a lap around Sebring in a immaculate Porsche RS 60 Spyder. If you're planning to tune in tomorrow, you can download Andy Blackmore's stellar spotter's guide in all its high-res glory here and read our breakdown of this year's season here.

      Didn't have to worry about Corvette VS anyone but themselves today.

      All of that designing, building, testing, planing, testing some more and then qualifying.
      The build up of all the hype, Green flag, great racing on the track and then ..................

      ........ a bone head move in the pits - no communication between Corvette teams and 2 vehicles and drivers going for the same real estate AT THE SAME TIME!!!!!

      Many years of experience, a few hard earned championships and no Crew Chief in the Corvette Pits had a clue today about the Big Picture. Sure they were repaired and went back out, and hopefully they finish well (race isn't over yet) but to do that in of all places - in the pits !!

      I hope they have their act together by Mosport - it's the only reason I go.

      Look at all the LMPCs. Awesome. Gunnar Jeannette even has how own team now.

      I am a little sad to see only 3 GT3 RSRs in the series. I like the Lizards and all, but it'd be great to see more teams field Porsche GT3s in LMP2. Don't let the Vettes (or Lizards) scare you away!

        There will be at least 4 at all the other rounds. Black Swan Racing chose to sit Sebring out to get more testing in.

        Porsche does field the LMP2 class with RS Sypders the RSRs are only GT2

      Loved that video. Old Porsche's still look fun to drive, as well as look at.

      I'm hoping for a corvette win though. :)

      If the Porsche drivers can respect when they have been beaten and refrain from taking cheap shots on the home straightaway, I might actually have some veneration towards the Porsche team...war has been declared Porsche and you need realize that the Jake C6s are gunning for you.

        If we don't need to reopen it, why did you just do it?

        There's dirty and then there's intentionally running another car off the track and into a wall. They are two different things.

        Magnussen didn't deserve to win (due to the bump he put on) but he also didn't deserve to have his life put in danger by another driver!
        • 4 Years Ago
        We really don't need to open that can of worms again... Both drivers were dirty. End of discussion. Move on to 2010!
        • 4 Years Ago
        Dirty or Can o'worms or not... it got peoples attention for this racing series which is a good thing. I hope the racing is clean but well if some dirt is tossed I won't mind.

        That and atleast the wreck wasnt as bad as the one in Nascar that is currently making the video clips lately.. now that was a wreck and shouldn't be allowed.. 3 race suspension I bet all the racers at ALMS wish they could get off that easy if they did something similar.

      GT2 is going to be awesome this year.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Going to the race tomorrow...can't wait
        • 4 Years Ago
        I hate you... in that jealous wish I was you type of way of course :D

      Focus will be on Porsche v. Corvette. I predict Ferrari will win GT. Probably at least 2 cars will be on the same lap at the end in GT.
