Le Mans: #63 Corvette Running Third in GT1


With 13:37 remaining in the race, the #63 Corvette is currently running third in GT1, one lap down from the first and second place Aston Martins. It appears that the weather is currently not a factor in the race as it was earlier. Earlier in the day we lost the #64 Corvette when the driveshaft failed and the car was unable to make it back to the garage without help. We also got a scare when the #63 Corvette C6.R driven by Jan Magnussen clipped an LMP1 Audi, which forced the Corvette into the gravel near the Dunlop bridge. Jan was able to plow through the gravel and no serious damage was done to either car.

For those of you not watching, here is the #63 Corvette C6.R making a night-time pit stop. The team made a driver change with Johnny O’Connell taking over the driving duties as well as topping off the fuel and getting four new tires.
