ALMS offering on of a kind $500K giveaway to Petit LeMans
Series offers once-in-a-lifetime Petit Le Mans experience for $500K

For those who think their dad has everything or is difficult to shop for, the American Le Mans Series presented by Tequila Patr¢n has created the Ultimate Father’s Day package. The extravagant package not only features world-class travel, accommodations and dining, but offers exclusive experiences only available through this unique offering. With a price tag set at $500,000, the ALMS Ultimate Father’s Day getaway is most certainly for those with discerning taste.

The 14th Annual Petit Le Mans powered by MAZDA will serve as the backdrop for a luxurious getaway for dad. Held at Road Atlanta, Sept. 29 – Oct. 1, in Braselton, Ga., Petit Le Mans attracts the best sports car competition in the world. The 10-hour race is not only the season finale for the American Le Mans Series, but is the sixth round of the Intercontinental Le Mans Cup and a qualifier for the legendary 24 Hours of Le Mans.

The ALMS Ultimate Father’s Day package begins with round-trip private jet travel for dad and up to 10 guests from anywhere in the continental U.S. to Atlanta. Once there, the Chateau Elan will host the group for four nights in five European spa suites, each with their own unique decor. Two priceless dinner dates will be arranged for the group: the first being an elegant dinner with Panoz Motor Sports Group founder Dr. Don Panoz; the second, a private tequila tasting with Patr¢n master distiller Francisco Alcaraz.

To avoid any race-day traffic, helicopter transportation will be provided each day from the Chateau to Road Atlanta. At the track, dad will have the opportunity to take a ride around the circuit in a Porsche 911 with a factory Porsche driver. A private, trackside chalet will be arranged for the group, plus a private meet-and-greet with an ALMS team. Dad and his guests will also have the option to watch a portion of the race from pit lane. At the start of the race, dad will be asked to take a seat inside the Series’ official safety car, a Porsche Panamera, for a once-in-a-lifetime view of the pace lap. At the race’s conclusion, dad will report to the podium participate in the post-race ceremonies.

On Sunday, Oct. 2, Château Élan plays host to the glamorous ALMS Night of Champions where dad will have a VIP table on reserve plus a private cocktail reception with the Series’ champions prior to the ceremony.

The amazing Petit Le Mans getaway may come to a close on Monday, Oct. 3, but dad’s present has one more important element - his new Porsche 911 Carrera.

Full American Le Mans Series ultimate father’s day package ($500,000):

• Ten (10) VIP Tickets to 14th Annual Petit Le Mans Powered by MAZDA
• Private jet transportation from anywhere in continental United States to Gwinnett County Airport
• Helicopter service to circuit Sept. 29 - Oct. 1
• Five European Spa Suites at Chateau Elan for five nights
• Dinner with Don Panoz
• Private dinner and tequila tasting with renowned Patr¢n master distiller Francisco Alcaraz
• Private chalet for dad and ten (10) guests at Road Atlanta
• Lap of Road Atlanta in a Porsche 911 driven by a Porsche factory driver
• Ride in the ALMS Safety Car at the start of the race
• Private meet and greet with ALMS team
• Spend part of the race in the pits
• Table for ten (10) at the ALMS awards gala
• Private cocktail reception with Series Champion prior to gala
• New Porsche 911 Carrera

Not everyone is in the market for an outrageous Father’s Day present as outlined above. For those going the more traditional route, the American Le Mans Series recommends a trip to the ALMS Web Shop where hats, tees and polos for dad will be on sale through June 19. Or, if October is too long to wait to watch dad enjoy the gift of racing, tickets for the Northeast Grand Prix at Lime Rock Park, July 8-9, would be a perfect compromise. 

Those interested in purchasing the American Le Mans Series presented by Tequila Patr¢n ultimate Father’s Day package should contact the Series headquarters at 706-654-2983 for full details and restrictions.
