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.
