44 Corse Formula One

Keith Bluemel


The team is bedeviled by aerodynamic aberrations, and by tires that don't reach high temperature quickly enough to qualify well. But they solder on, mainly looking to the 2012 seasons, now that 2011 has become an impossible chase.
46 Corse American Le Mans Series

Keith Bluemel


The AF Corse team comes to the U.S.A. and does well at Atlanta, followed closely by the ever improving Extreme Speed Motorsports team. Risi Competizione contemplates a tough year.
47 Corse Le Mans Series

Keith Bluemel


AD Corse takes the LMS GTE PRO series Championship in a tough season. This team (Ferrari's semi-official team) has come out on top. Our congratulations to all.

Peter Singhof
