Ruffier and Longin had a good pace throughout most of the race despite one scare. Ruffiler developed a problem with one of his wheels. His radio was broken and there was no way to communicate the issue to his crew. When he was finally able to pit, the crew worked fast and they were able to regain the lost time in the pit area.
“In the FIA and LMS Series in Europe, we have 11 Corvettes equipped with purpose built K&N air filters,” said Mike Atkins, Pratt and Miller Program Manager. “K&N air filters are the best on the market when it comes to horsepower and filtration.”
A top three Corvette podium looked possible late in the race. But Maserati driver Alex Muller passed the third GT1 Corvette in the running with only two rounds left in the race.
