El equipo de los Argentinos, el mas rapido en GT2
Bueno, sigo investigando cómo seguir la carrera
Por lo visto, Wheels estará a nuestra disposición sólo a partir del ecuador de la carrera, pero probablemente esta se pueda seguir por la web de las ALMS, como ya pasó en Road Atlanta el año pasado
WAO dios quiera q los tíos de las ALMS realicen una conexión directa con su página web y la podamos seguir todos desde allíIniciado por eloyf1
Hace mucho que no veo Wheels, pero la programación es la de Speedtv ¿no?
Según esto, se podrá ver toda la carrera, exceptuando las dos horas de retransmisión de la Nascar.

http://www.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/73788Dixon gives Acura shock Sebring pole
By Matt Beer Thursday, March 19th 2009, 19:47 GMT
Scott Dixon, De Ferran Acura, Sebring 2009De Ferran Motorsports' Scott Dixon put the new LMP1 Acura on a shock pole position for the Sebring 12 Hours, beating the diesel Audis and Peugeots.
The IndyCar champion snatched the top spot on the ARX-02a's debut in the final minute of qualifying, usurping Audi's Le Mans legend Tom Kristensen by 0.082 seconds.
With three minutes remaining, that same 0.082s margin had covered the top four on the grid, as Audi's Mike Rockenfeller provisionally held first place ahead of Peugeot driver Sebastien Bourdais, Dixon and Kristensen.
Peugeot's Christian Klien had spun at Turn 2 on his first flying lap, but then briefly shot up to pole before Kristensen threw in a 1m45.360s lap seconds later.
That looked good enough for pole until Dixon's incredible last gasp effort on 11-lap-old tyres, with Kristensen abandoning his final run when he realised it would not beat the Acura.
"It was definitely nail-biting," said Dixon. "On the first run you always try to put a time down and they came back and matched that.
"We tried to push as much as we could and luckily this car seems to get quicker and quicker on its tyres."
Klien's No.07 Peugeot stayed third ahead of Rockenfeller's No.1 Audi and the No.08 Peugeot, while David Brabham put the Highcroft Acura sixth on the grid.
Acura took a double pole as Adrian Fernandez led the way in LMP2, two seconds quicker than the still-developing Dyson Lola-Mazdas.
Porsche out-ran Ferrari in GT2 qualifying, with Farnbacher Loles' Dirk Werner heading Flying Lizard's Jorg Bergmeister by 0.382s. Advanced Engineering's Gianmaria Bruni was the best of the Ferrari drivers in third, just 0.054s behind Bergmeister, and 0.342s quicker than Risi's Mika Salo.
The underdog shock of the session came from the Robertson Racing Doran Ford, as veteran David Murry put the car fifth on the GT2 grid, a highly respectable 1.3s away from Werner's pole time.
Bill Auberlen was seventh in the best of the new Rahal Letterman BMWs, but the sister car developed technical problems before it could set a time.
Oliver Gavin beat Jan Magnussen to pole in the all-Corvette GT1 class, as the C6-R makes its final Sebring appearance.

Most Successful Porsche Race Cars Reunite at 12 Hours of Sebring
Porsche RS Spyder, Porsche 962, Porsche 935, Porsche 718 RS 60
Porsche's successes at the 12 Hours of Sebring in Florida are on display for all to see. The German automaker is the most successful competitor at the race after covering 18 overall wins and 65 class wins.
In this special group photo the cars featured are a 718 RS 60, and RS Spyder, the 935 and a 962. Each of these has contributed to Porsche's achievements on that event. The 718 RS 60 took Porsche's first overall win at the race in 1960 under the guidance of Hans Herrmann from Germany and the Belgian by the name of Olivier Gendebien. At the time the 718 RS 60 was a compact, lightweight racer with a 160hp 1.6-litre engine. Thanks to its exploits of beating bigger more powerful cars it earned the nickname "Giant Killer."
The Porsche 935 was a formidable force in Sebring between 1978 and 1984. Power came from a 2.85-litre 6-cylinder turbo engine making 590hp (434kW). It ran circles around rivals on the track seven times in a row and became a racing legend in the process. Interestingly no one driver drove the car for more than one season during those seven glorious years.
Immediately after the 935 came the 962 which plotted four wins in a row beginning with the unit driven by American A.J. Foyt Jr and Frenchman Bob Wollek. The car's 2.85-litre turbo motor produced 680hp (500kW).
The 2008 RS Spyder recorded Porsche's latest win, twenty years after the 962. It was led by the team of Timo Bernhard (German), Romain Dumas (French) and Emmanuel Collard (French). Even though it was competing in the LMP2 category it beat all the other cars in the faster LMP1 because of reliability and fuel consumption. The RS Spyder's less powerful 478hp (352kW) 3.4-litre V8 engine did not seem to hamper it. It was 200hp (147kW) less potent than rivals.
Ingolstadt/Sebring - Good debut for the Audi R15 TDI: The all-new diesel-powered sports car from AUDI AG will start its first ever race from the front row of the grid. Le Mans record winner Tom Kristensen (Denmark) missed the pole position for the 12-hour race at Sebring (US state of Florida) by just 0.082 seconds. Almost as fast was youngster Mike Rockenfeller (Germany) who qualified fourth with the second R15 TDI.
The five fastest prototypes were covered by only 281 thousandths of a second in Thursday afternoon's qualifying session. Literally in the very last moment Scott Dixon from New Zealand in the Acura/Honda snatched the pole position from Tom Kristensen. The Dane recorded his fastest lap only on lap seven after he caught traffic on his previous attempts. In the end he qualified second as the fastest driver of a diesel-powered sports car.
Mike Rockenfeller also got stuck in traffic on his first flying lap. With his second lap he jumped to the top of the field. The team, however, decided to save the tires for the race and not to try another qualifying attempt.
The 12-hour race at Sebring serves Audi Sport Team Joest mainly as a test for the Le Mans 24 Hours on June 13/14. The Audi squad used all practice sessions since last Saturday to learn as much as possible about the new diesel sports car and to try different setup options. Both cars ran basically without any major problems so far.
The race, which begins on Saturday at 10:30 a.m. local time (3:30 p.m. in Germany), will be a test under race conditions for Audi Sport Team Joest. Following the race, the crew will stay for three further days at Sebring to complete a further twelve hours with the two R15 TDI prototypes.
Mike Rockenfeller (car number 1) and Allan McNish (car number 2) are nominated as start drivers for Saturday's race. Audi has won the 12 Hours of Sebring eight times so far in ten events.
Quotes after qualifying at Sebring
Dr. Wolfgang Ullrich (Head of Audi Motorsport): "The grip level in qualifying was not at the same level as the previous practice sessions. I would also like to reiterate that we are here to prepare for the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Therefore, we have not spent any time setting the car up specifically for qualifying. We have seen here at the very first meeting that the various vehicle and car concepts are very closely matched. We will now try to make a good race collecting as much experience as possible for Le Mans."
Ralf Jüttner (Technical Director Audi Sport Team Joest): "So far it actually went quite well. We have been faced with surprisingly few problems so far and have worked well through our program. In qualifying, the fastest cars were covered by less than three tenths of a second - which is unusually tight. This promises a very good and close race."
Dindo Capello (Audi R15 TDI #2): "Sebring is just one small step behind Le Mans for me in terms of importance and the most historic and important endurance sports car race in the US and to be a part of this great event is something very special. Sebring has been kind to me with three wins already and every race here I have very special memories. My very first race here in 1999 I was driving with two Formula One heroes of mine - Stefan Johansson and Michele Alboreto. Sebring has always been, and always will be, very important preparation for Audi for Le Mans. The fast and bumpy track is very hard on car and driver. Survive 12 hours here and you're in good shape for Le Mans."
Tom Kristensen (Audi R15 TDI #2): "Wow! It would have been really cool to have made a debut pole for the R15 TDI. We had pole but it was snatched away on the last lap of qualifying which was very close and exciting. Our focus is for the race and a successful warm-up for Le Mans but as a driver, of course I wanted the pole. I could have been luckier as it took until my seventh lap before I had a clear lap out of traffic. I had to back off and make space. Thankfully I had enough diesel in the car so I could do the extra laps. Well done to Scott (Dixon). We're eagerly looking forward to the race."
Allan McNish (Audi R15 TDI #2): "The V10 engine in our new R15 TDI gives a different and improved power response compared to the R10 TDI. It's most noticeable at the hairpin (Turn 7) while the better weight distribution from the smaller and lighter engine allows the car to be more agile. We benefit from this element especially in the Esses section (Turns 15 &16) but we can also throw the car around in the higher speed corners. We can place the car a little better too. For the 12 hour race, we've a comfortable car to drive over the bumps and through the high-speed corners. It's going to be a tough race with the first five cars covered by less than three-tenth's of a second."
Lucas Luhr (Audi R15 TDI #1): "The R15 TDI is a brand new car, our baby. We are all very pleased and happy with the car. It reacts to changes, which is very positive. We are of course still in its infancy. The R10 TDI was developed over three years and fully exploited. The R15 TDI is still, let's say, like a new-born child. We will for sure face minor problems. But our aim is Le Mans, and we've still got some time until then. Sebring is the perfect platform to test the car for Le Mans. And so far it looks very good."
Mike Rockenfeller (Audi R15 TDI #1): "Our starting position does not satisfy me even if it is not so important from where you start in a 12-hour race. Unfortunately we've narrowly missed the pole with both our cars. Tom (Kristensen) was two tenths faster than me, but he did significantly more laps. It was a shame to sit in the pits and watch losing the first position. But on the other hand I now have the fresher tires for the race."
Marco Werner (Audi R15 TDI #1): "Basically the work with our R15 TDI just starts here. The tests in Europe were completed mostly in the rain and in cold temperatures. This here is the real world, and actually it looks very good so far. We know that we have a fast car. There was certainly a little bit more possible in qualifying. But the pole is not so important during a long race. Our car is fast, the rest we'll see in the race."

Acura!! Acura!! Acura!!
Hola chicos he estado mirando x aqui y al final no me ha quedado muy claro si se puede ver la carrera desde internet.
Alguien me puede resolver la duda y si es asi m podria decir o dejarme el link de donde la retransmiten?
Un saludo y gracias
Ay... No lo sabe nadie. Las primeras seis horas, ni idea, pero seguramente se puedan ver a través de la web oficial o de Speedtv.com (Al menos ayer la clasificación se pudo ver así), y a partir de las 7ª hora de carrera, Sportzone4 emitirá la carrera a través de su canal de Justin.tv
Yo confío en que unas horas antes, unos minutos antes o en cuanto comience pillemos algún enlace, alguno tendrá que haber, habrá que moverse!!
Lo complicado será ver la salida....
Por cierto, me parece que la carrera no es a las 16:30, sino a las 15:30...
Hostias, ¿Seguro? que mal me pilla entonces... Me perdere las dos primeras horas y despues por la noche directamente me deja sin ganas de salir. El plan era salir un ratillo por la noche y estar aqui de nuevo a las 3 de la mañana para ver la ultima hora y media. Pero asi, con este panorama mejor ni salgo nada. Por que me apetece mucho seguirla y mas si vamos a poder verlo por alguna parte.Iniciado por eloyf1
