MOSPORT'S 2011 AMERICAN LE MANS SERIES DATE MOVES TO JULY 24

(BOWMANVILLE, ON -- September 1, 2010) -- Just days after the American Le Mans Series, presented by Tequila Patrón cars roared into Mosport for their only Canadian stop of the season, the Series has announced that the 2011 date for the Mobil 1 presents the Grand Prix of Mosport will be July 21-24.

This new date moves the Mosport round back one week earlier than originally announced, giving Series participants a much welcomed two-week break until the next event at Mid-Ohio, August 6.

The 10-race schedule starts March 19 with the traditional season-opener at Sebring, FL, and closes at Road Atlanta, October 1 with the Petit Le Mans (this is also a date change for Petit from the original release). The remaining events feature a familiar mix of North America's best permanent road courses and high-profile street circuits, including a new race on the streets of Baltimore on Labour Day weekend.

"We're really pleased that Mosport has again landed a coveted summer date on the 2011 American Le Mans Series presented by Tequila Patrón schedule," said Mosport's president and general manager, Myles Brandt.

"I think the move to July will be well received because it clears up some conflicts with other automotive and motorsports events. Having the 2011 schedule announced so early is a bonus, allowing our fans and corporate partners to mark that date on their calendars now and start making plans to be at Mosport next July 24th."
