SEBRING, Fla. - Alexander Wurz teamed with Marc Gene and Anthony Davidson to give Peugeot its first victory in the Twelve Hours of Sebring, leading the French manufacturer's sweep Saturday night in the endurance race.

Wurz drove the diesel-powered Peugeot 908 HDi FAP to a 13.817-second victory over the sister Peugeot driven by Sebastien Bourdais, Nicolas Minassian and Pedro Lamy. The Peugeots completed 367 laps on the road course.

Wurz and Gene also teamed for Peugeot's victory in June in the Le Mans 24 Hours.

Greg Pickett, Klaus Graf and Sascha Maassen won in LMP2 in a Porsche RS Spyder, and Jaime Melo, Gimmi Bruni and Pierre Kaffer topped the GT2 class in a Ferrari F430 GT to give Risi Competizione its sixth straight victory in a major endurance race.

In the new LMPC class, Level 5 Motorsports' Scott Tucker, Christophe Bouchut and Mark Wilkins won handily in their ORECA FLM09 prototype.

Alex Job Racing swept the GT Challenge podium, with Butch Leitzinger, Juan Gonzalez and Leh Keen beating Bill Sweedler, Romeo Kapudija and Jan-Dirk Lueders.
