This great video by IMSA not only highlights the winner of the first-ever Petit Le Mans back in 1998, Wayne Taylor of Doyle-Risi Racing, but also pays tribute to the event's creator, the legendary Dr. Don Panoz, who passed away in September 2018. Throughout its 21 year history, quite a few Panoz cars have raced in the Petit, including the GTR-1, DeltaWing, and LMP-1.

Check out the video, and get excited for this upcoming Saturday the 12th!
