Slight Change To ALMS Schedule
The 2005 Mosport ALMS event, originally scheduled for August 26-28,
has been put back one week, to September 2-4. Both classes of the
SPEED World Challenge will now be part of the event.
"The American Le
Mans Series decided to make this change to further strengthen our
annual event at Mosport International Raceway," said Scott
Atherton, President and CEO of the American Le Mans Series. "With
a small modification to the series schedule, the American Le Mans
Series will provide Mosport fans another incredible weekend of the
world's best sports car racing. We have enjoyed record crowds the
last two years at Mosport and this adjustment is a testament of
the American Le Mans Series' continued commitment of truly being
'for the fans.'"
Conveniently, the date
change means avoiding a clash with the GA weekend at Mid-Ohio (August
26-27 – a Saturday race anyway). GA’s Saturday race
at Mont Tremblant is followed by the ALMS race at Mid-Ohio on the
Sunday, so the only clash of actual race dates is on the Portland
(ALMS), Barber (GA) weekend at the end of July.
