“Racing in Detroit is a really neat deal for us,” said Johnny O’Connell. “The people know about Corvette Racing’s accomplishments in the American Le Mans Series and in the 24 Hours of Le Mans, but this is our first opportunity to show the incredible technology of the race cars.”
Corvette Racing took second place in their class at the 75th running of the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Ron Fellows, Johnny O’Connell and Jan Magnussen drove their No. 63 Compuware Corvette C6.R in the GT1 class. They were also sixth overall in the world’s most famous sports car race.
Corvette Racing runs a special K&N Engineering Air Filter. “Dirt is a huge problem in street races,” said Crew Chief Dan Binks. “K&N protects our engines from the debris.”
The Detroit Sports Car Challenge will start at 3:15 p.m. EST on Saturday, September 1. The nearly three hour race will be televised live on SPEED Channel
