Acura unveiled an Acura-powered race car the company plans to campaign in the 2007 American Le Mans Series. The ALMS draws on the heritage of long-distance "endurance" sports car racing in both Europe and the United States, as exemplified by the historic 24 Hours of Le Mans. The 10-race domestic series includes the 12 Hours of Sebring - a U.S. fixture since 1952 - plus events at the country's premier road circuits, including Road America, Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, Laguna Seca, Lime Rock Park and Road Atlanta.
ALMS competition features multi-class racing of high-tech sports car prototypes and production-based Grand Touring machinery, with both factory teams and relentless privateers battling for victory. State-of-the-art technology and engineering, ranging from electronics to aerodynamics to fuel efficiency, are key to success in the ALMS. Manufacturers currently fielding teams include Audi, Porsche, BMW, Ferrari, Lexus, Aston Martin, and Chevrolet.
