Corvette Racing Program Director Doug Fehan and Dan Binks – crew chief for the #3 Corvette C6.R – took time out of their schedule to come visit Corvette owners and enthusiasts attending the 2012 Bash at the National Corvette Museum in April.
The duo discussed the state of Corvette Racing in the American Le Mans series as well as their preparation for the biggest race of the year, the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
The racing seminar is one of the highlights for the Bash weekend. Usually the seminar includes one of the drivers and Tommy Milner was originally supposed to attend. But he got a gig to race a Corvette in the Nurburgring 24 hour race with Jan Magnussen and Richard Westbrook and so he and Jan were in Germany for the official practice session. Fehan said he was going to then grab new driver Jordan Taylor but he was down in Homestead racing his Chevy Camaro. So this year it was just Doug and Dan.
There are some really interesting moments. We learn how Doug and Dan got their start in racing and how the two came together nearly 30 years ago to race Oldsmobiles. Doug and Dan also talk about the deep personal feelings they each have for racing – and winning – at the 24 hours at Le Mans.
It’s a long seminar, nearly 1 hour and a half long, but there is a ton of good stuff for Corvette Racing fans. So make a drink and grab some snacks, sit back, and enjoy your fix of Corvette Racing from the 2012 NCM Bash.
