CONTINUING RACE TRADITION
Corvette Racing Returns to Le Mans 24-Hours


Corvette Racing, America's premier sports car racing team, returned to Le Mans in France on the weekend of 14/15th June with the aim of adding to their unique winning tally in the world's toughest motor race. Since 2001, Corvettes have won the GT1 sports car class five times and have a heritage at the track dating back almost half a century.

The 2008 Le Mans 24-Hours continues to see the GT1 category as one of the most competitive arenas, with the Corvette C6.R (Corvette 6th generation, Racing) cars set to do battle with marques such as Aston Martin and Lamborghini. The Corvette Racing team comes to the La Sarthe circuit with an illustrious winning pedigree.

Corvette Racing made its competition debut in 1999 and by the end of the 2007 season had won 63 of the 90 races it had contested. The team's accomplishments now include seven consecutive American Le Mans Series GT1 manufacturers and team championships and six successive drivers' championships.
