Now that we’ve all seen the art car livery ‘Human’ on Larbre Competition’s No. 50 Corvette C7.R, it was time to get down to business during the annual Le Mans test day.
The ‘French American’ C7.R posted a time of 3:58.302 and an average speed of 205.9kph (127.9 mph) to finish second fastest in LMGTE-Am class and just 0.052 seconds off the leading No. 98 Aston Martin.
Christian Philippon, Romain Brandela and Fernando Rees will driving the Corvette C7.R in the French Summer Classic.
Larbre Competition’s Test Day went exactly as planned, which is rare enough in motorsport to be worth a mention!, said Jack Leconte, team manager of Larbre Competition. He adds, “Christian qualified for the race and other tests were used to set up our Corvette C7.R so our three drivers are happy and comfortable at the wheel, which is always an important factor at Le Mans.”
Larbre Competition’s ‘Human’ livery has really generated a lot of press for the car. Designed by Ramzi Adek, it features a vibrant DayGlo color scheme that we can’t wait to see in those night time hours.
Here’s a video recap of the Larbre Competition’s No. 50 Corvette C7.R ‘Human’ at the Le Mans test day:
It’s going to be another great 24 Hours of Le Mans for Corvette Fans. We’ve got three Corvettes and two great teams to root for.
