LeMans 2008: [VIDEO] #63 Corvette Gets A Change of Brakes

#63 Corvette Makes a Pit Stop

The telemetry in the #63 Corvette C6.R was showing the right front brakes running hotter than normal so the decision was made to pit the Corvette, do a visual check and if needed, change out the pads and rotor. Watch the crew go to work and in particular keep your eye on Crew Chief Dan Binks as he whips off his helmet and dives right into the wheel-well to get the job done. Total time for the brake change is just one minute 24 seconds.

  1. I don’t want to over simplify the C6R but isn’t simplicity beautiful. I’ve often felt when we hear the marketese from Corvette engineering talk about translating technology from the race car to the road car what engineering really should be doing is finding ways to make our cars less complicated. Of course, I understand this is no apples to apples comparison but it’s a fun conceptual argument.
