2002 - 24 uur / hours Le Mans
Net als in de twee voorgaande jaren domineerden de Joest Audi R8R's. Ook de tweede achtereen-
volgende poging van zustermerk Bentley kon het Duitse feestje niet verstoren.

Just as in the two previous years the Joest Audi's dominated at Le Mans. The second attempt from sister brand Bentley could not prevent the German party.

2002 - 24 uur / hours Daytona
2002 Was het laatste jaar dat de reglementen van de American Le Mans Series en de Grand Am relatief dicht bij elkaar lagen. We zagen op Daytona dan ook veel bekende auto's uit LMP675 en LMP900, maar dan voorzien van de kenmerkende grote roll-over bar. De Lista Dallara was een verrassende winnaar.

2002 Was the last year that the rules of ALMS and Grand Am were so close. We saw a lot of familiair ALMS cars drive in Daytona. The Dallara was a surprise winner.
