Just kidding. The truth is though. That I am really too lazy to write up an entire recap of the 12 hour, 300+ lap race. So if you want a recap, go to AutoBlog. If you want to hear me rant, then stay here.
I'll start it off with the ending results:

GTE Am Lietz/Roda/Ried Proton Porsche + 80 lapsSo as you can see it was the Oreca Peugeot that took the overall title and BMW with the GT's.Basically, my thoughts on this: What the heck? Oreca Peugeot? Not even the factory Peugeots in the new 908 but the privateer team running last years car. What happened there?What happened to Audi? They pretty much were a non-factor. The race got off to a good start with thePeugeots getting 1st and 2nd on the starting grid and the Audi's in 3rd and 4th. When the green flag dropped,there was immediately pressure from the Germans. Both Audi's pushed hard out of the gates but within acouple laps, it all came undone.In the the GT category, Jan Magnussen got off to a fantastic start in the C6R, pulling out a 2 seconds leadwithin the first several laps with a F430 behind and two M3's after that. Soon though, that lead was whittleddown and it was wheel to wheel for several laps and then finally the F430 and a M3 got the better of theCorvette.But then there was a safety car. All kinds of crazy action there with a whole second start it was nothing butcrazy neck and neck action.After a while, it all returned back to normal but then Mike Rockenfeller suffered two consecutive tirepunctures within a single lap. On top of that major transmission problems plagued the Germans. I found this to be quite odd coming from the team known for their reliability.What is really awesome is what was going on down in the 2nd place LMP2 car. This was the SignatechNissan which was partially driven by a video gamer turned race car driver via the Nissan GT5 driversacademy. If you aren't familiar with what that is, allow me to enlighten you. The Nissan drivers academy was a online competition on Gran Turismo 5. The winner of this challenge would get a taste of professional racing, and here he was in the 12 Hours of Sebring. If you ask me, I'd say he did quite good for a gamer. We'll seehim again at Le Mans in JuneJust watch the videos.
