At the C5/C6 Bash last week at the Corvette Museum, Corvette Racing’s Program Manager Doug Fehan talked about racing this season and about Sebring in particular. The Perfect Storm is how he has described the events that led to the two Corvette C6.Rs crashing in a pit lane mishap at the 12 Hours of Sebring.
Prefacing his discussion of Sebring, he stated that he “owed it to the fans to talk about all the things we do wonderfully well… but there are going to be times when we race where we don’t do things so wonderfully well”. Doug is a stand up guy and we appreciate his candor.
Although the audio is kind of poor due to the acoustics of the room, you can hear a detailed explaination on exactly what happened and why Doug calls it the Perfect Storm.
Following the lunch and discussion, fans lined up for an autograph session with Doug and C6.R driver Johnny O’Connell.
