The top LMP1 class is shaping to be a real battle royale at next month's 12 Hours of Sebring. Peugeot has confirmed that it will be campaigning two of its diesel-powered 908 HDi coupes at the American Le Mans Series season opener. The Peugeots will be taking on at least four brand new race cars in this warm-up for the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Audi will be unveiling a pair of its all new R15 TDI vehicles at Sebring and Acura will have the first race outing for its P1 class ARX-02a. Corsa Motorsports is also expected to debut its new hybrid-powered Zytek racer. The diesel Peugeots have shown tremendous speed at the last two Sebring races but the cars have proven fragile on the bumpy Florida track. It will be interesting to see this evolutionary car can take advantage of its experience against the new cars.
