Corvette Racing took first and second place in the GT1 class and were second and third overall in the Lone Star Grand Prix. The #4 Corvette driven by Olivier Beretta and Oliver Gavin finished just ahead of the #3 Corvette piloted by Ron Fellows and Johnny O’Connell. The win was made even more impressive due to 176 pound weight penalty over the Aston Martin team. Motorsport.com is featuring a review of the race by #4 Corvette Oliver Gavin:

I followed Johnny for 1hour 15 minutes out of my time in the car (98 minutes) and was almost mesmerized sitting behind him. He was driving brilliantly in the No. 3 car, and he didn’t make a mistake, not one inch. It couldn’t have been any closer between us and the Aston Martins.
The next challenge for Corvette Racing will be the American Le Mans at Mid-Ohio May 19-21 in Lexington, Ohio.
