2003 American Le Mans Series season
Previous: 2002 Next: 2004

The 2003 American Le Mans Series season was the fifth season for the IMSA American Le Mans Series. It was a series for Le Mans Prototypes (LMP) and Grand Touring (GT) race cars divided into 4 classes: LMP900, LMP675, GTS, and GT. It began March 15, 2003 and ended October 18, 2003 after 9 races.

Dyson Racing's overall win at Sonoma Raceway was the first time in ALMS history that the overall win was captured by a vehicle not from the LMP900 class.

Schedule[edit]

Little was changed between the 2002 and 2003 schedules; the Grand Prix of Washington, D. C. and Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course did not return, but both were instead replaced by the return of the Grand Prix of Atlanta at Road Atlanta.
