As one of the partners in the Race to Win Corvette Sweepstakes, AutoWeek’s Editorial Director Dutch Mandel was able to sit down with Corvette Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter and Corvette Racing’s Engineering Director Doug Louth. The two engineers discussed the individual aspects of the 2011 Corvette Z06 Carbon Edition and how cascade engineering with the racing program has created the best track Corvette yet.
“One of the reasons we race is you can’t deny what happens on the track. When you win Le Man, it’s undeniable. Racing is in our DNA. We go out there to prove ourselves on the track, we take the lessons and put them into the showrooms. And there is no faster more economical way to do performance vehicle development than racing.”
