MOSPORT'S 2010 AMERICAN LE MANS SERIES DATE ANNOUNCED
August 26-29 set for the Grand Prix of Mosport

(BOWMANVILLE, ON -- September 25, 2009) As part of its 50th anniversary season celebration, Mosport International Raceway will again host the only Canadian stop on the 2010 American Le Mans Series schedule, August 26-29.

Canada's largest sports car race of the year has become a popular fixture of the GTA's sporting scene over the past decade, last month attracting more than 70,000 to the four-day event, along with a world-class field of drivers and teams representing 22 countries.

Next year's Series schedule was announced in today in Road Atlanta (Braselton, GA), where teams and drivers are preparing for Saturday's 10-hour endurance classic, the Petit Le Mans.

The 12th season of American Le Mans Series racing kicks-off with the traditional season-opener at Sebring, March 20.

Following Sebring, the Series rolls westward to Long Beach on April 17 where it will be Saturday's feature race in a doubleheader weekend with the IndyCar Series at America's oldest and most prestigious street circuit. The next event is a historic first -- a six-hour endurance race at Monterey's Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca that will run into the darkness on Saturday, May 22.

The traditional summer break will allow a selection of the American Le Mans Series' top drivers and teams to compete at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the world's greatest motor race, from June 12-13. The season's second half begins with two dates in July - Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele, Utah on July 10 and Connecticut's Lime Rock Park on July 24. A trio of races fills the schedule in August --Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course on August 7 as part of another doubleheader weekend with IndyCar; Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wis., on August 22; and Mosport's end-of-August date.

The 13th annual Petit Le Mans, the 1,000-mile/10-hour cornerstone event of the American Le Mans Series, will close the season on October 2.
