Corvette Racing has 5 Petit Le Mans Wins
Corvette Racing has won its class seven times at Road Atlanta (including five Petit Le Mans class titles). The teams technology and driver lineup have changed over the years, along with the track itself. Several turns have been reconfigured and the track was recently resurfaced.
O’Connell was one of several Corvette drivers who sampled the new asphalt with K&N Engineering products. “We run special K&N air filters,” said crew chief Dan Binks. “K&N protects our engines from the harsh environment.”
Petit Le Mans will start at 11:15 a.m. EST on Saturday October 6. It will be televised live on SPEED Channel from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. EST.
