2018 Motul Petit Le Mans Races at Road Atlanta

The 2018 Motul Petit Le Mans Races at Road Atlanta will draw crowds from around the world, but few from our own neighborhood.  That’s like living in San Francisco and never riding a cable car.  Or like living in Denver and never going to the top of Pike’s Peak.  Or like living in N’Orleans and never going to Bourbon Street, even for a glass of sweet tea.

The highlight of the Motul Petit Le Mans races is the 10-hour endurance classic with Prototype vehicles that are the fastest and most technologically advanced cars in North America.  Yes, they’re even faster than you-know-who’s Shelby/Rousch/GT Mustang.
