BRASELTON, Ga. (October 7, 2011) - The results are in and the 14th annual Petit Le Mans powered by Mazda is in the record books as one of the most successful races in the history of the American Le Mans Series presented by Tequila Patrón (ALMS.) Indeed it also drew more spectators to Road Atlanta than any other weekend of the track's 41-year history. Beginning with the camper and motor coach crowd that arrived for opening day on Wednesday, Sept. 28, the four-day attendance figure amounted to 131,400 spectators according to the promoter.
