Lou Gigliotti's GT2 Corvette Goes On Display at the Corvette Museum

The first Corvette to compete in the highly competitive American Le Mans GT2 class was honored in December with a display spot at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, KY. Lou Gigliotti and his Black and Flames Corvette was a mainstay of the 2008/2009 ALMS seasons before the two factory Corvette C6.Rs shifted their focus from GT1 to GT2. Although outgunned financially by the factory race team, Lou put up a great fight as a privateer and in his final GT2 race at Petit Le Mans, his LG Motorsports #28 Corvette qualified second in class and faster than Corvette Racing’s C6.Rs.

Here are some pictures of the LG Motorsports #28 GT2 Corvette at the NCM:

The Corvette is expected to be on display for the next six months. However, the riley-built track car is for sale and Lou tells us that Museum Delivery is available. Good to know Lou and congratulations on the display. You earned it!

A video showing the Corvette entering the museum was shot by Adam Boca and uploaded to facebook. Also, check out our related section for some links back to ALMS coverage featuring Lou and the LG Motorsports #28 GT2 Corvette.

  1. I want to comment about the ALMS – ESPN / ABC TV Package (or lack there of). Unless I don’t understand this correctly, I will be unable to watch the Corvette guys race on my big screen TV (in the ALMS). So much for being a fan. Am I right on this? ESPN3 is internet viewing only? Tell me there is another way. mw

    You’ll be able to watch, but I’m guessing the number of races being carried live (or even tape-delayed) in their entirety will be slim. I can’t imagine sitting down to watch 2 Hours of Sebring? ESPN3 is internet stream only. And you have to be on one of their approved cable/internet providers to get the content. I’m a DirecTV subscriber that gets internet through Time-Warner Road Runner. Although Time-Warner is an approved cable provider, because I don’t subscribe to their digital TV package, I don’t ESPN3.

    Not the best news and I see a lot of people are not happy with this deal. Although ESPN is an upgrade to SPEED in terms of viewers, the rub is that there are just not that many options that will suit the series, network and fans.
