“Long Beach is a great place to say goodbye to GT1 fans in the United States, “ said Corvette Racing program manager Doug Fehan. “When the checkered flag falls at Long Beach, I think it will be a moving experience for everyone on the team.”
Corvette Racing is the winner of the last eight ALMS GT1 team and manufacturer championships. Corvette Racing has posted 75 class wins worldwide, including a record 69 ALMS victories.
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.”
“There is a huge Corvette following in Southern California,” said driver Johnny O’Connell. “It’s very special to let them see the Corvette C6.Rs in their last GT1 race in the United States. Over the years we’ve had great battles and rivalries with Viper, Ferrari, Saleen, Maserati and Aston Martin, but now we’re moving on to an even more competitive arena on the world stage.”
The Tequila Patron American Le Mans Series at Long Beach is scheduled to start at 4:15 p.m. PST on Saturday April 18. The one-hour and 40 minute race will be televised by ABC on April 19 at 12:30 pm EST.
