  by Gary Parravani
Last weekend was the Espiritu de Montjuic festival, Barcelona's classic celebration of its speed-based heritage, a cacophony of noise and a gathering of epic racing machinery stretching back through the decades, driven at anything but pedestrian pace.

Racing Green: IMSA  Championship At The Forefront
  By Steven Cole Smith
It's hard to imagine that in 1969, when peace activist John McConnell suggested at a UNESCO conference in San Francisco that we should have a special day once a year to recognize the urgent need for environmental awareness, that he had sports car racing in mind. Yet on Earth Day 2015, it is worth noting that the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship is proceeding with the plan initiated by the American Le Mans Series presented by Tequila Patron years ago to explore ways to go fast, but still go green.

  By Steven Cole Smith
The big news of last weekend in the world of sports car racing was the 63rd running of the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring, the second race in the season for the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship sanctioned by the International Motors Sports Association (IMSA). But profoundly important for the future of both the sanctioning body and series was an announcement made moments before the green flag: IMSA had signed a six-year extension through 2020 with the Automobile Club l’Ouest (ACO).

Who Will Win At Sebring? It's Anybody's Guess
  By Steven Cole Smith
With 46 cars on the entry list for the 63rd Annual Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring Fueled by Fresh From Florida, there's no doubt the competition will be fast and furious from the drop of the green flag at 10:40 am (ET) Saturday to the checkered flag 12 hours later. At one time, Sebring – run on the historic 3.74-mile, 17-turn road course which partly consists of pavement dating back to World War II - was a strategy race, where it was important to save your car, and your drivers, for the sprint to the end.
