Gallery: American Le Mans Series at Long Beach Part 1

The Long Beach Grand Prix has been held, in one form or another, for going on 39 years now. The American Le Mans Series has contested seven of those, using Long Beach as the first round of their non-WEC sanctioned, a month after the 12 Hours of Sebring.

The 2013 installment of the American Le Mans Series’ highest attended street course saw Klaus Graf and Lucas Luhr take the overall victory for the third straight year. In GT, BMW took their first class victory with their new pair of Z4 GTEs. P2 fell to the boys at Extreme Speed, who made the switch to the hard-fought P2 class this year after contesting the GT field for the last two. Le Mans Challenge was won by CORE Autosport’s Colin Braun and John Bennett — a victory that also saw them on the second step of the overall podium. Finally in GTC, NGT Motorsports and Sean Edwards took the checkered flag.

Check out the gallery above for a look at some of the exciting street action seen at this years Long Beach race.
