Our friends at Mobil 1 The Grid are as excited about the return of sports car racing as the fans, and they created a special video with Corvette Racing’s Oliver Gavin to preview this weekend’s 2017 Rolex 24 at Daytona. Ollie also recaps last year’s race in which Corvette Racing’s C7.Rs raced each other in the closing minutes to a 1-2 finish!
The 2016 Rolex 24 Hours saw an historic 1-2 finish for Corvette Racing, with eventual GTLM champion Oliver Gavin edging teammate Antonio Garcia in what would turn out to be the closest ever finish in class history. Mobil 1 The Grid spoke to Gavin as he recalls the drama of the race last year, as well as looking ahead to this year’s showdown at Daytona International Speedway.
