We just got word through Lance Miller that his 1960 #3 Briggs Cunningham Corvette has made it safely to the port of Le Havre in France. The Corvette was placed in a large cargo container last month and made its trans-Atlantic voyage by ship. By now the Corvette should be resting comfortably at the famous 24 Hours of Le Mans Museum.
On Monday, Johnny O’Connell will be driving the class winning C1 racer on the track for a photo shoot with Richard Prince, Corvette Racing’s official photographer. The Briggs Cunningham Corvette will also be joined the GT2 Corvette C6.Rs at the famous start/finish line. As Corvette Racing’s only American Driver, we feel the selection of JO driving the original #3 Corvette is perfect.
We’ll keep updating as soon as there is more news. And believe me, there will more about this historic Corvette at Le Mans!
