    The golden era of the ALMS. Every race from the season was amazing, both LMP1/2 battle and the GT2 battles.

      Not for GT1.

      Only two cars (Team Corvette) battled themselves for the win at Long Beach in 2008. Not even enough cars for a complete podium. The Bell Motorsports prepared Aston was on the entry list but didn’t race.

      Hardly the “golden era” for that class.

      More like the beginning of the end.

      By mid-’09 GT1 was gone.
