Corvette Racing kicked off the 2011 American Le Mans Series with two new cars and two new drivers at the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring. After 12 hours of going pedal to the metal, the twin C6.Rs finished third and fourth in GT. The No 03 Corvette C6.R with Olivier Beretta, Tommy Milner and Antonio Garcia earned the podium and was the only non-BMW to finish on the lead lap. The No 4 Corvette C6.R with Oliver Gavin, Jan Magnussen and Richard Westbrook fought off several potential setbacks and spent much of the race climbing out of a three-lap deficit to end in fourth place.
The GT class showed again that anything can happen. The Corvettes battled BMWs, Porsches and Ferrari throughout the day and into the night. Leaders fell and challengers emerged. Sometimes lady luck is on your side and then the next minute she’s wiping your face in the dirt. But that is racing. I hope that these images we took captured the “Take No Prisoners” mentality that drives the crew of Corvette Racing.
