The Corvette C6.Rs at Petit Le Mans

If you’re planning on watching the Monterey SportsCar Championships this weekend, you’ll see Corvette Racing’s now-famous mascot “Jake” front and center on the hood. The new graphics were created by the GM Design Center for the season ending American Le Mans race.

In other news, Jan Magnussen scored his second pole of the season with a GT1 class record at Laguna Seca. His lap of 1:19.291 (101.611 mph) eclisped the record he set last year and was .499 seconds faster than Oliver Gavin’s 1:19.790 (100.975 mph). Our friends at BadBoyVettes remind us that with Corvette Racing moving to GT2 next year following Le Mans, this is a record that could stand forever.

The four-hour ALMS race, the headline event of the Monterey Sports Car Championships, is scheduled to start at 2:45 p.m. on Saturday, October 18. NBC will televise the race tape-delayed from 2 to 4 p.m. EDT on Sunday, October 19.
