CLEARWATER, Fla. (November 13, 2000) -- Professional Sports Car Racing, Inc. (SPORTS CAR), the sanctioning body which organizes and officiates the American Le Mans Series, has announced the addition of driver, manufacturer and team championships for the "LM" P 675 class for the 2001 season.

"This year, 'LM' P 675 cars were permitted to participate in ALMS events, but due to the limited number of cars available for competition, they were grouped with the more powerful 'LM' P 900 cars in driver, manufacturer and team championships," said Doug Robinson, Managing Director of SPORTS CAR. "As the 2001 season approaches, interest from chassis and engine manufacturers continues to grow and car availability has increased significantly. Now is the time to take the next step."

The 2001 American Le Mans Series will include the following categories and classes as defined in the ACO "2001 SPECIFICATIONS": <pre> Le Mans Prototype Category:

"LM" P 900

"LM" P 675

Le Mans Grand Touring Category:

"LM" GTS Class

"LM" GT Class

For 2001, the supplementary regulations for each event in the ALMS will list the prize money posted for the top 20 overall finishing positions, along with class bonuses posted for the top four positions in each of the four classes.

The standing supplementary regulations for the ALMS, contained in the 2001 SPORTS CAR Code, will outline the championships for drivers as well as car, chassis, engine and tire manufacturers in all classes.
