American Le Mans Series:

During a two-day, open test for the upcoming series race at Road Atlanta in Braselton, Georgia, Dyson Racing's James Weaver broke the track record for LMP 675 cars with a lap clocked at 1 minute, 11.711 seconds.

The Dyson Racing's Lola EX257-MG cars race exclusively on Goodyear tires.

Weaver's lap this weekend will not count as the official track record, as it did not come during an official event. No matter for Weaver, as he is the official track record holder anyway, having set it in October.

Chris Dyson, driving another team car, had the fastest lap on the first day of testing at the 2.54-mile road racing facility and was second-fastest overall.

** V8STAR Series: Pedro Lamy won his second victory of the season when he captured the Galeria Kaufhof 100 in front of a reported crowd of 180,000 at the legendary Nurburgring in Germany.

The 31-year-old Lamy also recorded the fastest lap of the race and now leads the championship points standings.

Roland Asch finished second in the race and Michael Bartels finished third. Bartels is now second in the standings, six points behind Lamy.

Robert Lechner and Dirk Adorf finished fourth and fifth, respectively.
