Well not all of their races are four hours. They have 12 hour events as well as the 24 hour events that are related.

On the side note the #3 podium finish BMW M3 was in 7th position with 30 minutes left. The driver did one hell of a chase and pass on Corvette's & 911 GT3's. It was just amazing to see that BMW was much faster on the straights and did not give much on the twisty to the Porsche's or Vettes. Not taking any thing from the front running Ferrari 458 cause it was seriously fast. Though.....I had a feeling that the #2 M3 had more in it. But they decided to play it safe and take sure shot 2nd place rather then risk it all for 1st position points.

4 hour races are sprint races. I mean there are Nascar races that last longer.

Weak.
