All right Corvette Racing fans. Give yourself a big pat on the back as it looks like Doug Fehan got the most votes for the “From the Fans” awards. Now we turn our attention to the favorite driver award and both Johnny O’Connell and Jan Magnussen made the final round. The last time O’Connell made it to the finals, he lost by just three votes. So let’s make amends and vote early and often (you can vote about once every 5 hours) and let’s put a C6.R driver at the top.
As of about 6:00 pm EST, Johnny O’Connell is leading with 28.5% of the vote followed by Jan Magnussen who is at 25.6%. We’ve heard some other manufacturer forums are getting ramped up so it’s imperative that you vote!
The finals come after three weeks of preliminary rounds. Here they are:
Week 1: Bill Auberlen, Greg Pickett and Johnny O’Connell
Week 2: Andy Lally, Simon Pagenaud, Guy Smith
Week 3: David Brabham, Luis Diaz, Jan Magnussen
As mentioned, you cast a vote about every five hours. Winners will be announced at the awards banquet following the season’s conclusion at Petit Le Mans.
Also, let me give a big shout out to Charley Robertson who really pushed the Doug Fehan nomination and helped turn out the vote. Doug was leading in the polls right before midnight and Charley is who we have to thank for that.
