Outside victory is Acura's first
2008 Lime Rock
There wasn't much money on Highcroft giving Acura a first outright ALMS victory after the opening exchanges. David Brabham qualified on pole, but team-mate Scott Sharp was in freefall down the order with a broken diffuser.
Speedy pitwork and canny tactics by the Highcroft crew - followed by a superlative drive from Brabham - sealed an amazing victory, one that was never in doubt in Brabham's mind.
