“Corvette Racing began as a long-term program to showcase the performance, technology and value of Chevrolet’s world class sports car,” said Mark Kent, director of GM Racing. “Corvette is a performance icon that’s recognized around the world and Corvette Racing’s continued participation in the ALMS and the 24 Hours of Le Mans will be an important element in the global celebration of GM’s 100th anniversary in 2008.”

Corvette Racing has won seven consecutive GT1 manufacturers and team championships and six straight driver’s championships in ALMS competition. The team holds the series’ records for class victories (57) and 1-2 finishes (40).

“We run a special K&N Engineering Air Filter,” said Crew Chief Dan Binks. “In France, dirt is a huge problem. There is a lot of gravel and they put kitty litter on the track to soak up the oil. K&N protects our engine. The only thing we have to do at pit stops is change out the tires and put in fuel.”

Corvette Racing will test two new Compuware Corvette C6.R race cars in February in preparation for the season-opening round of the ALMS series, the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring, on March 15, 2008.
