ROSWELL, Ga. (Oct. 14, 2003) — Pirelli Tire North America Inc. sponsored a charity go-cart event Oct. 13 to give race fans a chance to win tickets to the last American LeMans Series (ALMS) race of the year on Oct. 18.
ALMS drivers during the charity event set their lap times at Andretti Speed Lab's indoor go-cart circuit. Fans then tried to beat their times to win prizes at tickets to the Petit LeMans race at Road Atlanta. This is the second year Pirelli sponsored the charity event.
A Pirelli spokesman said proceeds from fans' contributions will be donated to the Special Olympics. Pirelli is the official tire of Road Atlanta, though the Rome, Ga.-based tire maker does not sponsor the race itself.
