Round six of the American Le Mans series at Road America concluded late yesterday afternoon in superb style. With closely contested finishes in all categories rounding out another brutally competitive showing for the championship and its competitors.

MuscleMilk AMR squad of Graf/Luhr again reigned supreme in LMP1. Despite late-race heroics from Dyson’s Guy Smith, Graf would secure the MuscleMilk team’s third victory of the season, narrowly besting Dyson’s #16 crew to round out the series closest ever finish, with a margin of 0.112sec.

Dyson’s crew of Smith/Dyson maintain their championship lead over MuscleMilk AMR by an 18 point margin.

Risi Competizione triumphed in GT. Marking the squad’s maiden victory for the 2011 season. BMW RLL would secure the remaining podium positions to extend the outfit’s (already sizeable) margin in the drivers, teams, and manufacturers championships.

‘Move of the race’ in the GT category is received by Wolf Henzler, for the overtaking maneuver seen below.

The penultimate round of the 2010 American Le Mans series saw Porsche teams respond to mounting pressure in in both LMP and GT categories.

After setting the pace during qualifying, CytoSport’s duo of Klaus Graf and Porsche works driver Romain Dumas would go on to take victory at the historic Canadian circuit. Championship rivals, Patron Highcroft finished a close second. The solid points haul for both teams ensures the LMP title race will be decided at the Petit Le Mans season finale in early October.

After inheriting the pole as a result of Risi’s misfortune, the Flying Lizard #45 squad performed in a manner of relentless pace and brutal consistency now characteristic with the team. The performance ensured Bergmeister/Long their fourth victory of the 2010 season, enabling the reigning GT2 champions to extend their points lead over closest championship rivals, Risi Competizione to margin of 22 points.
