As you know, the Corvette Racing team is in France for the 24 Hours of Le Mans which will take place this weekend. Yesterday the team was in downtown Le Mans at the Place de la Republique for scrutineering which is where all the teams and crew report to have their cars and equipment inspected. While in the Center of Le Mans, the team pauses to take their annual group photograph.
Here are some photos of Monday’s Scrutineering from the Team Chevy facebook page:
If you noticed that there were only 4 drivers in the photos, then you are correct. Richard Westbrook and Jordan Taylor were late to Scrutineering as they both raced Saturday at the Grand-AM event at Mid-Ohio. Based on a couple of the tweets from Westbrook, it wasn’t all that smooth of trip across the pond. But now the whole team is together and ready to race.
Today is a light day for the drivers as they are mostly doing PR events. The first practice sessions start on Wednesday at 4pm local time (10 AM ET) with the first qualifying sessions beginning later that evening.
Stay tuned all week as we’ll be dropping the latest news from La Sarthe as it comes in and make sure you join us Saturday morning as once again we’ll be live-blogging the 24 hour race.
